IL BOSCO IN BIO priority is the best for our pigs: food, space, environment. We started by breeding few animals and today we have about a hundred of them on 10 fenced hectares.
A small area is for reproduction (boars, sows and piglets), instead the oak woods (8 hectares) is for wild breeding. Animals grow in well-being, feeding on grass, acorns, tubers, roots and wild fruits. We complete their diet with farm-produced organic flours of cereal and leguminous.
We mainly breed “gray” pigs (crossbreed between Cinta Senese and Large White) but we are also experimenting with a three-spoke crossbreed (Cinta Senese x Large White x Duroc) really fitting for wild breeding.
Piglets are weaned after 50 days of life. The adult subjects are slaughtered after 18-20 months of life, thus obtaining a harmonious development and a right meat maturation.
