Yes, you can adopt a sheep in Italy, even if you’re halfway across the world.
And by doing so, you help support an organic sheep and goat farm deep in the mountains of Abruzzo, Italy. You get to name him or her, get an identity card and certificate, and you will have artisanal cheeses and wool products shipped to you as part of your sponsorship.
Master Shepherd Nunzio Marcelli birthed the Adopt a Sheep program twenty years ago.
As part of my in-depth visit to Nunzio’s organic farm, La Porta dei Parchi, I had the good fortune to sit down with him and hear firsthand about the program.
