Alpagota Lamb

This species of sheep is characterized by a thick wavy and thin coat which completely covers the animal and by its small ears. The history of pastoralism in Alpago dates back to the forties of the twentieth century, when the local families had a few dozen of animals, necessary for sustenance and the town of Chies d'Alpago counted so many flocks to include the image of a sheep in the coat of arms of the municipality.

It is a native breed of Alpago and perfect for a the mountain environment. This ovine has a triple attitude, because it can provide quality meat, milk and wool.

The lamb, famous for its tender meat and delicious baked with potatoes, is a Slow Food Presidia (non-profit association with the aim to promote world's food in the respect of those who produce it, eat it and of the natural environment ) and is bred in the wild grass-fed, or semi-wild with the integration of hay produced on site and cereal flours.

Numerous restaurants in this area offer lamb in their menu.
