We are also Tuscany cowboys and our Limousine cows
You may remember the posts I did on integrated farming earlier this year and last year. Part of our belief in integrated farming is that livestock should also be raised on our estate. We believe that this integrated farming or "agricoltura promiscua" is an important element of the Brunello di Montalcino terroir.
These are Limousine cows and they are kept in a very large
fence in the lower part of the farm. We chose Limousine as they're more rustic
than Chianina and they're suitable to live outside. Plus, these are from the
Appennini, so they're used to cold weather, too
