Pecorino dei Monti Sibillini is one of the typical products of Macerata’s territory (therefore also of the Mountain Union) counted among the Slow Food presidia, aimed at supporting small traditional productions through the enhancement of the territories, the recovery of ancient crafts and processing techniques. In addition, this acknowledgement also supports native breeds and varieties of vegetables and fruits, to prevent their extinction.

This cheese was chosen as a Slow Food presidium because it is identified with the very history of the mountains that characterize the territory and that, to date, it still preserves the signs of transhumance and an important pastoral civilization.
