BENOS FARM
“Benos Farm” was founded recently at the north-eastern slides of Mount Menalon as a breeding ground for wild boars and hares. The farm primarily addressed organised teams (e.g. hunting associations) who deal with hunting and wanted to enrich the fauna of their region. However, rapidly there was a turn to the production of meat of wild boar addressing henceforth units of catering, hotels, shops, delicatessens, logistics companies, cooking chefs and others.

The meat of wild boar belongs to the category of red meats. Due to the small quantity of intramuscular fat the meat has a characteristic of intense red colour. This fact makes the meat harder and therefore requires a careful and particular way of cooking. The distinct flavour is a result of the nutrition with tubers and fruits of the forest. It can be found in forests with oak trees, chestnut trees and lammergeyer trees. It is omnivorous and its food consists of roots, tubers, various fruits, wrists and cones and especially acorns, chestnuts, mushrooms and other. The absolute freedom of movement and the nutrition of animals, in the most part, is with fruits of the forest, acorns, chestnuts, mushrooms, various tubers and roots, which have as result the production of an exceptional quality of meat with a distinct flavour.

In a forest with beeches, oaks, chestnut trees, where springs with crystal waters spurt from the ground, we leave the animals to grow easily, freely, in their natural habitat. Without the use of medicines, antibiotics and augmentative hormones. The use of synthetic medicines besides that is prohibited by regulation (EEC) 2092/91 on organic production, but mainly adheres to our general philosophy, which coincides with the sanitation of the animals, their well-being and the prevention of illnesses through the use of aromatic plants in their nutrition.

We ensure the sufficiency of food in the winter months with corn and barley from organic cultivations. We create protective areas for the sows and the piglets. We mainly protect the animals from their natural enemies and most of all from humans!
