Elassona Farm has the only certified abattoir in Greece for Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) lamb and goat from Elassona.
These unique rare breeds are reared according to extremely strict specifications and give high-quality meat with a taste and texture influenced by specific characteristics of the area.
Characteristics: The meat is tender and succulent with a signature taste and pleasant aroma. They have low overall fat, a higher proportion of polyunsaturated fatty acids than other lambs and goats, and more linolenic acid.
The animals are fed exclusively on mother’s milk.
They come from sheep and goats that graze within a limited mountainous and semi-mountainous geographical area. Sixty per cent of the area is made up of pastures where a wide variety of grasses, herbs, and aromatic plants grow.
