This is Slow Food!
This is Slow Food!
Slow Food is conducting research on animal welfare. Today we visited producers in the Sambucano Lamb Presidium in Piedmont, Italy. Here, in the Stura Valley, 16 year old shepherd Mattia cares for his flock for four months over the summer, so they can graze on the valley’s alpine meadows. “All my friends are on computers and at the beach, but I have been doing this with my father for as long as I know. I talk to my animals and they keep me company.”
The Presidium was created to protect the Sambucano sheep breed which came dangerously close to extinction when its population dropped to just 80 in 1985. Now around 4000 head of sheep are raised by dozens of small-scale farmers in area.
Slow Food Presidia are projects that protect quality food at risk of extinction. Find out more at www.slowfoodfoundation.org
