Along the hills crest

On the crests of the hills of the Langhe-Monferrato territory, ATHC is a research on today’s forms of breeding alternatives to mass production in the north-west of Italy. Among the pastors portrayed in these images, we can find an idea of rearing which has centenary roots, who takes care of the welfare of the animal before that of its productive capacity, because this is the only way to guarantee the quality of the product which is cheese, honey or meat. Abandoned the epoch of the obsession of growth, there is today the spread of a type of consumption more selective, more attentive to the quality and more interested in cultures of origin of the products themselves. The development of farm holidays and didactic farms, source of income complementary to the breeding, allows to shepherd a better balance with the natural rhythms of work with animals, in harmony with the ecosystem of the territory.
