Agriumbria, farmers fair and cattle show

 

Umbria has always been dedicated to agriculture, animal husbandry and food, outshining at the national level in the quality and typicality of earth products. Agriumbria is the main trade fair exhibition of this productive sector and gathers exhibitors from all over Italy.

The traditionally cattle market is impressive with all the enormously big bulls and clean and combed sheep and goats and other exhibition spaces with technological solutions to suit every type of farm.

We always return from the fair with catalogs for way too big but very cool tractors, funny plants, seeds for unusual vegetables and exotic herbs, sometimes chickens or ducklings and some years ago even a peacock couple (I will write about that adventure in another blog post). This year we managed to leave Agriumbria without new livestock in the car but with only a blueberry bush and some very small succulent plants.
