Visit to Free-Range Pig Farm in Norcia

Il Maiale brado di Norcia, in UmbriaA farm and shelter for free-range pigs in Norcia, inside the Sibylline Mountains National Park.

You can arrange to adopt a pig in an area of some 100 hectares (about 247 acres), with a density of about 7-8 head per hectare.

This way the pig remains active and on the move, accumulating smaller quantities of “”bad” fats and greater muscle mass. This generates tastier, more compact and generally healthier meat.

The philosophy is to return to bygone traditions, i.e. rear the pig directly, process it and season it according to the art of “norcineria” (the special Norcian processing of pig meat delicacies).

The pigs’ nutrition consists of natural products: acorns, tubers and grass. During the winter it is supplemented with barley, wheat and corn grown directly on the farm.
