USTICA SLOW FOOD

Ustica's lentil, the smallest in Italy, and broad bean, which have always been grown on the island, have been included in the Slow Food list by the organization that protects at-risk quality products linked to the territory.

When the organization was established, there were few farmers, today many young people are engaged in the cultivation of lentils and broad beans and the production has increased with the improvement of uncultivated land giving important results also from an environmental point of view. Now local lentils are exported to Italy and abroad and are always in the astronauts' menu.
