The Grandi Pascoli covers 65 hectares of woodland between Vitigliano and Il Prato di Vignamaggio. It is a remarkable tapestry of diverse environments, including oak forests with holm oaks, turkey oaks, and regular oaks. Streams peacefully flow through the region, bordered by small wetland areas with alders and hellebore flowers, along with picturesque clearings.

These pastures are dedicated to the free-range raising of pigs and have been thoughtfully fenced to be ‘wild boar-proof.’ This conservation effort not only protects the integrity of the ecosystem but also serves a purpose integral to the sustainable practices of the estate.

The securely fenced pastures allow the pigs to roam freely, fostering their well-being and natural behaviors. The pigs revel in the freedom to run, indulge in refreshing baths, and engage in the instinctive pursuit of acorns, mushrooms, and roots. This way of farming not only prioritizes the welfare of the animals but also contributes to the production of high-quality pork, as the pigs lead a stress-free and active life in sync with the rhythms of the natural environment.

Grandi Pascoli encapsulates a commitment to sustainable agriculture, environmental conservation, and the well-being of the animals in our care. It is a testament to the harmonious coexistence of agriculture and nature, where the free-range raising of pigs becomes an integral part of a balanced ecosystem, enriching the quality of life for both the animals and those who appreciate the bounties of this unique landscape.
