Where Italian Traditions Meet Vermont Pastures

Benvenuti - Welcome

Monti Verdi, or “Green Mountains” in Italian, is where our handcrafted salami begins.

Our authentic Italian salumi-making methods merge with the Green Mountains of Vermont–where we call home–to bring you a marriage of ethical, sustainable, and true products from our farm.

Our origins

We are both originally from Northern Italy. Ale, born in Genova and raised on Lake Como, moved to the US when she was 15. Stefano, born and raised in Torino, moved to the US in 2015. After spending 4 years working together as livestock farmers, we decided to start making cured meats commercially and founded Monti Verdi salumi in 2019.

Our Salumi

Monti Verdi creates salumi (cured meats) for those hungry for authentic, artisanal foods. The recipes for our salumi come from the flavors and memories of our lives in Italy, and the bountiful aromas and flavors that can be found on our land in Vermont.

Purpose

From our unique Vermont location, we bring you the flavor and texture of authentic Italian salami. Our process is sustainable, as it honors the animals, land, and traditions surrounding salami-making. It's hard work, but well worth it for the taste.

Pigs

Our animals are raised compassionately and sustainably because great meat comes from happy and healthy animals. Our pigs are pastured on our land and raised using noGMO feed. While indulging in the local flora of Vermont, they also help us maintain and improve our soil.

Our Story

Agricola (farmer, in Latin) is inherent to who we are. Farming is more than the products grown, it’s working within a system to create benefit rather than profit.
