Alpi Marittime Park is characterized by the presence of Piemontese cow breeders and, during the summer, about 600 Frabosana (or Roaschina) sheep climb to the mountain grazing lands. Here, traditional raw-milk cheese is produced, above all Nostrale, while Tomino of Entracque is mainly produced by two cheese factories collecting the milk from areas outside the Park. Entracque is also the name of a top-quality potato production (a local variety has been re-launched, the so-called Piatlìna), while Cuneo bean is cultivated in about 70 thousand hectares of provincial territory, from Fossanese plain to the mountain valleys and Upper Langa. Among the ancient fruit cultivars there are Martin Sec pears (particularly suitable for cooking) and Buras, Carla, and Contessa apples. Moreover, in the forests adjacent the Park it is possible to pick fine chestnuts.
