The flora, fauna and fungi of a specific region.
Biota is the belief and philosophy of our entire process. Flora; is used to discuss our unique region and land. Fauna; refers to our livestock. Of course we know that life cannot exist without the natural bacterias of a region. Thus, the collective term referring to these different forms of life in a specific place -
BIOTA. The plants, animals and natural microflora of an ecosystem. Working together, symbiotically and in harmony.
As the Mangalitsa roam freely in the Napa & Sonoma forests grazing on grass, roots, wild herbs, and seasonal acorns & chestnuts; to the aging cellars where our salumi slowly ripen. All of which is surrounded by our friendly, geographically unique microflora or (penicillium mold).
The development of our beneficial, natural mold provides protection to the meats while drying, also adding an unmistakeable flavor and aroma of its own. Or as we call it, our "salumi terroir".
