Fire Flocks brings together public and private agents interested in the continuity of the pasture in our forests by converging their needs. To this end, it articulates a chain of production and consumption of food from the participating herds that contribute as an added value to the prevention of fires in strategic forest areas (defined by firefighters and / or forestry technicians of the Department of Agriculture).

Artisan Butchers trade of Girona regions works to give added value to the products of the participating farms, through a badge that certifies support for the control of the risk of fires carried out by the herds. Consumers will know that eating Fire Flocks’s gastronomic products has social benefits; it serves to keep alive the local extensive livestock farming and Mediterranean forests alive.
