When you arrive at Cascina Caremma you can not help but notice the beautiful pigs that are bred on site; from two pigs slaughtered at the beginning, now there are more than a hundred head of cattle grub freely in a big pasture outdoors.
Graze on a campaign of almost one and half hectares divided into two parts: where have grazed this year, next year will be sown corn, which will benefit the business operated by the pigs, finding common ground largely free from weeds and rich of nutrients.
Animals are so favored by a free lifestyle, staying healthy and free from antibiotics and drugs in general, providing a clear example of how the relationship between man and the environment can be highly synergistic.
The daily feeding is constituted by a mixture of Bio flour composed of protein peas, barley and corn, all produced at zero meters.
After years of research we finally managed to find the last animal of race Mora Garlaschese (Garlasco is a town Lomellina beyond the Ticino, so in Pavese territory, but that is as the crow flies no more than 10 Km), a breed endangered which like all the native breeds have a better adaptation to the farming system in the wild and greater resistance to disease, producing a savory meat, ideal for the production of cold cuts.
The indigenous farming allows Cascina Caremma to give life to an own production of delicatessen meats, a passion born 30 years ago thanks to a meeting with Elio Sgarella, valuable collaborator and a great friend. With him are born all meats, processed and accudititi as a “family jewel”, following blindly the tradition that the pig does not throw anything.
