una capra per amica

An idea for families

The Capra Pezzata Mòchena (Pletzen Goes Van Der Bersntol in Mòchena dialect), has lived in the Valle dei Mòcheni since the fourteenth century, initially the Lagorai mountains and then widespread throughout Trentino. Ten or so years ago, when this breed was facing extinction, a group of fanatical breeders put together an operation to safeguard these goats and its products.
Today the Pezzata Mòchena mainly lives in Valle dei Mòcheni, in Altopiano di Piné, where two Breeder Associations work, and it is gradually spreading throughout Alto Perginese, Bassa Valsugana and Val di Gresta, with a total number of some three hundred animals in the whole of Trentino.
Una Capra per Amica” (Befriend a Goat) has been thought up for families who want to spend a day in nature, getting hands-on experience with centuries-old country customs, getting to know the Pezzate Mòchena goats along with the other animals on the farm, trying their hand at traditional cooking and enjoying excellent food made with zero-kilometre goats’ produce.
A calendar of workshops for young and old, learning to milk the goats, make cheese and cook with the goats’ produce. You will find a map of restaurants, farmhouse holidays and mountain refuges, where you can enjoy traditional cuisine made with zero-kilometre goats' produce and the addresses for a dozen farms, with the names of their famers, ready to welcome you and show you everything there is to know about life on a farm.
