Abruzzi Pecorino Cheese

Pecorino cheese is a characteristic product of transhumance, a very ancient form of territorial management in the South of Italy. Together with ricotta cheese, it has represented for decades the essential diet of the shepherds who used to move with their flocks between Apulia and Abruzzi, following the season cycle, looking for pastures giving unique aromas and fragrances to the sheep-breeding products. The usage to move the flocks to Apulia has practically disappeared; however, the use of mountain pastures and fodder combined with the traditional processing method which has been maintained unchanged, give to the current pecorino cheese production the ancient features of a transhumance product.
