An enterprising young farmer in Caltanissetta is producing sausages made from goats' meat for communities which do not eat pork.  Luca Cammarata, of Azienda Cammarata   won the Oscar green prize in the Farm Style and Culture category in a competition for young farmers organised by the Italian Farmers' Union Coldiretti back in July.   He also produces goat cheeses, milk and yoghurt.

Luca has raised a herd of Maltese goats, helping to protect the species from extinction and invites parents to bring their children to his farm so that they can learn something about traditional country ways before it is too late.

Let's hear it for Sicilian enterprise!

I have mixed feelings about this.

Good for Luca, and well done Sicilian enterprise, indeed.

But I do not want to read that proper salami is disappearing from the shops "in case of causing offence", or that shops that stock it are being harrassed by the Religion of Peace.

Those sorts of developments would be disastrous, but I fear they may be the next steps.

Hi, Anne. Yes, well done, Luca. Hi, lakeviewer. My pleasure. Hi, jams and Lost. Yes, good luck to him! HI, WY. Nice to see you. I don't think proper salame is in any danger here.
