Traditional Agri-foodstuffs of Monte Cucco Park

The territory of Monte Cucco Park heavily characterizes its gastronomy, consisting of a variety of local and quality products, in particular cheese, truffles, mushrooms, honey, charcuterie, cereals and legumes like spelt, barley, lentils, chick-peas, and chicklings. Mountain pastures are the main feature characterizing sheep meat and beef. Some family-run agricultural holdings not only offer a tourist welcome service, but also produce and sell moderate quantities of organic products.
