Agriturismo Calicozzo

The farm

The farm, with organic production, covers about 70 hectares, 30 of which are arable land, 20 of forest and 20 of pasture. The arable land is divided into alfalfa and barley, which are needed to feed the farm’s livestock.

The Pasture

The high pasture (1,000 meters) in the Monte Montiego area is a natural pasture with grasses typical of the Umbro Marchigiano Apennine mountains, which is essential for the summer grazing of livestock.

Cattle breeding

The herd consists of Marches breed cattle, registered in the herd book, and red spotted cattle, for a combined total of 50 head.
The cattle for the six winter months remain in the barn fed with the farm’s fodder, and the remaining six months are taken to the pastures on the property.

The meats

The totally organic and wholesome type of feeding makes the meat a bit redder and tastier but still tender and flavorful, a special feature of our farm.
The farm also includes the raising of 40 heads of sheep and a few heads of pigs, from which we then make typical products such as ham, loin, salami, sausages, etc.
