Olli Salumeria Bresaola is air-dried beef made from the bottom round. This cut is salted and hand-rubbed with spice. Olli Salumeria makes artisanal slow-cured meats based on original 160-year-old family recipes that were handed down to 4th generation Italian Salumiere, Oliviero "Olli" Colmignoli. As for the hogs, they are pasture raised on family-owned sustainable farms.Good salumi is directly affected by the quality of the pork, and Olli Salumeria goes to great lengths to obtain the best heritage-breed (Berkshire, Duroc and Mangalitsa) pigs available. The pigs are humanely pasture-raised on family farms (never confined to pens or crates), and are fed all-vegetarian feeds (antibiotic-free and never fed animal by-products). The pigs are grown to mature age and weight for increased flavor (about 8 months vs. industry standard 5-6 months). These farmer partners put a lot of care and attention into the way they raise their pigs, making an exceptional product for your table.
