About Bagnolese SheepAbout Bagnolese Sheep



Bagnolese Sheep are an autochthonous breed from Campania, Italy that got its name from the village of Bagnoli Irpino in the province of Avellino. They probably derives from the crossbreeding of the Barbaresca breed and the local breeds of the Apennines. Over time they spread from Irpinia to the entire region up to the provinces of Caserta and Salerno.

They are medium-large white sheep with black spots. There are excellent dairy products derived from its milk: pecorino as well as ricotta cheese (fresh or salted and aged). They are also raised for meat.

In Irpinia (province of Avellino) they are still largely kept in wild or semi wild state, fed on herbal pastureland with integration only in the winter months.
