Cinta Senese

The pigs below are Cinta Senese, an endangered species or heritage breed raised here on the farm. This breed of pig was originally raised here on this farm centuries ago and you will often find Cinta Senese products as part of the slow food movement. Last night we had Cinta Senese salumi for an appetizer. Cinta Senese or belted pig reminded me of the belted “oreo” cows that I have seen in Vermont.

Look at that cute piggy!
