Nebrodi Black Pig

Nebrodi black pigs are medium-small and have a black coat with stiff bristles forming a kind of mane along their back. The pigs are raised in semi-wild or wild conditions in the forests and meadows of the Nebrodi mountains. They are fed supplementary cereals and legumes and kept in small huts called “zimme” only when absolutely necessary or when giving birth. Around 10,000 pigs of this frugal and hardy breed are currently being farmed, 2,000 of which are kept by Presidium producers. The farms are very small and the farmers also process the meat.

Season

Cured pork products available year-round.

The extinction of this pig breed would represent a serious loss, in terms of its genetic heritage but also for the local economy and gastronomy. The Nebrodi black pig produces excellent meat, and the Presidium promotes the rich and varied range of traditional local products: capocollo, fresh and dried sausages, a salami called Fellata, pancetta and recently also excellent prosciutto, which can stand its own next to the famous Iberian hams.
