About Brigasca SheepAbout Brigasca Sheep

Brigasca sheep are a local breed whose name is linked to the border territory between Liguria, Piedmont and Provence. They are descended from the Frabosana breed and likely crossbred with Langhe sheep. The Brigasca is a rustic animal, perfectly adapted to the traditional rearing system of a minimum of six months in alpine pastures.

Brigasca sheep are used for milk and meat. Their milk is used to produce three different kinds of cheese: Sora, Toma, and Brus. All are made with techniques and tools bound to the ancient tradition of transhumance.
