Cinta Senese is highly valued pig breed, who grazes in wild forests on Tuscany hills. The animals feed primarily on acorns which this area of Tuscany is particularly rich due to the presence of a high number of evergreen oaks. Forests provide also chestnuts, tubers, roots, truffles etc, highly nutritious food that is natural.

Cinta Senese is a slow food. It is grown slowly. If industrial pigs must reach to 160/180 kg in 9/10 months, then Cinta Senese grows naturally more than 18 months. Cinta Senese meat is highly valued due to its amazing taste where purity and wilderness turn this meat into incredible gourmet food.

The interesting fact is that Cinta Senese pig is well recognizable in the fourteenth century ‘Buon Governo’ (good rule) fresco by Ambrogio Lorenzetti.
