Lunch Time

Marco from Prati Parini feeds his furry friends. He is an Italian farmer, a few years back decided to get a few Highlands Scottish cows to help him with the upkeep of the land, by conservation grazing. Now they all wait for him to stop by and say hi, everyday. In the winter he is providing the food, milk for the babies and hay for the grown ups. Watching them interact was incredible. Marco has a name for everyone of them, telling their stories and traits of character. The dog always gladly helps too.
