This tasty queen of sausages is matured on farms in the Jaun Valley to create a sensational taste experience, and is the result of an elaborate production method. Jaun Valley farmhouse salami involves knowledge that has been handed down, the correct rearing and feeding of the pigs, the farms’ own recipes, experienced hands in the production and maturing process, and a commitment to the highest quality.
Naturally this wonderful speciality can also be tasted on the spot at all the Jaun Valley salami farms (see PDF download) and the farmhouse pubs in the region.
Every year the salami crown is awarded: This is a challenge cup (challenge roll of honour) which is given annually to the best Jaun Valley farmhouse salami. Hundreds of friends and customers come along to see the crown being collected from the incumbent salami king.
Tip: The salami festival at the Stift Eberndorf monastery (31 July 2011) is the official Jaun Valley farmhouse salami festival and an absolute MUST in summer in Southern Carinthia.
Here every year the salami princess is chosen as well: every visitor is given a heart sticker to welcome them, and these hearts can then be awarded to one of the candidates for the princess title. The salami princess is the one who receives the most hearts.
