Good Milk Comes From The Grass
BRA-Casa della Biodiversità - Via Marconi
It might seem trivial, but the industrialization of animal husbandry is distancing our daily cappuccino ever further from the grassy pastures we see in milk advertising. Concentrated feed, maize silage, imported hay, genetically-modified soy… Thanks to this standardized diet, milk produced in Romania is no different than the milk produced in the Po Valley. But something is changing: from Austria to the UK and Brussels. And in Italy, Slow Food is launching a new project to support the people producing milk, naturally, from grass.
