Since the oldest times, the livestock of choice has been a monastic tradition.
In the first years of the 21st century the Monastery of the Transfiguration established a flock of Charmoise ewes for mutton in order to make the most of the grazing land surrounding the monastery.
Today the sheep livestock is oriented towards the breeding and sale of rams and ewes for reproduction.
