A careful selection of ingredients, chosen among the products of the farm, allows the realization of tasty and healthy food, exalting the typical dishes of the Umbrian and Tuscan cuisine.
The company was founded in 2004 in S. Maria di Lignano in the Mount Subasio Park about 20 km from Assisi.
Its objective is the preservation of biodiversity as a breed of black pig. Biodiversity is crucial because its conservation depends on the maintenance of ecological balance of the planet and the survival of our species.
Nature - for those who raise outdoors - is the main ally for the entire production cycle, only "added ingredient" able to stimulate and to grow in contact with the open air, with sunlight and with functional exercise especially grazing, the immune system, making the animal almost immune to diseases.
Also able to enhance the flavor of their products on our plates. Power is another factor that has a significant effect on the quality, not only because bio, therefore safer for the health of the consumer, but also for the ability of food to transfer to meat many olfactory and taste pleasing, because "we are always what we eat".
Therefore, thanks to mixtures of corn flour, barley, fava bean cold administered, we get poorer meat of cholesterol, and rich in unsaturated and linoleic acids.
Finally even membership of historic races, indigenous and colored, plays its importance on the quality, as the flesh of the black pig is more suited to the conservation and transformation because its pH, after slaughter, does not drop significantly as It takes place with the other races.
The meats used in the preparation of our meats are exclusively of pig 20-24 months of age.
Our sausages are bio diverse: The Black Pig, like all native species in the process of recovery, it is rare (just a few leaders), compared to the improved breeds (landrace, large white etc.) and reduced fertility (6/8 puppies with childbirth against 10/16 of the other races).
There is a high risk of inbreeding that would affect the already small number of pigs born.
In the black pigs raised in the wild, although it is recognized as strong maternal instinct of sows, it has a reduced number of piglets at weaning, compared to the improved breeds but also to those reared in native tethering.
Our animals reach maturity and are slaughtered at around 20-24 months of age (compared to 9 months of improved breeds), achieving a harmonious and correct maturation of the meat.
The ratio between the cost of production of black pig and pig (common) improved 1/4 and finally the meat processing is handmade and has a higher cost than that of industrial transformation.
In the opening period of the structure, it is possible to taste organic products at KM O at lunch and dinner. Half board has a cost of €30 per person excluding drinks and includes a starter, 1 first or main course, dessert.
