Nebrodi Black Pig is a small-size pork with a dark coat, very similar to the wild boar. It lives in Nebrodi forests and is bred in a semi-wild state in large areas used as pastures: only near the delivery their diet is integrated. Frugal and resistant, this breed has recently undergone a reduction in the number of heads (at the moment, approximately two thousands).
Its extinction would represent a big loss for the genetic heritage, the local economy, and our gastronomy, since Nebrodi Black Pig gives top-quality meat. The cuts are eaten fresh or processed - the product is sold from October to April - into salami, ham, bacon, etc. Festivals dedicated to this pig are held every year in Maniace, Caronia, Longi, and Cesarò.
