Maccagno is known for excellent toma from the mountains around Biella. It takes its name from the Alpe with the same name located beneath Mount Cossarello, north of Biella.

It was the favourite cheese of Queen Margherita of Savoy and Quintino Sella Minister of the Kingdom of Italy and founder of the Italian Alpine Club.
