Try the life of a farmer for one day! For this workshop you will find yourself in an ancient farm, surrounded by large rural spaces and stables for animals. Together with expert local farmers and breeders with decades of history, you will put your hands in the dough in 2 different workshops (plus a third for free!).
– harvesting workshop: depending on the period, you can participate in a fruit picking experience or other seasonal products. In July and August there is the harvest of fodder and wheat, in September and October the grapes are cut for wine and sowing, between October and November the citrus fruits are harvested, and finally in November and December there is the olive harvest and oil production.
– breeding workshop: our organizer will lead you on the path through which the main activities related to the breeding of goats, cows and other animals are carried out: feeding, controlling reproduction and pregnancy, participating in milking.
During the activities, you will have time to visit the farm and experience the beautiful rural environment.
Furthermore, as a gift, you will be offered participation in one of the following activities of your choice:
– dairy products workshop: you can make mozzarella and other cheeses;
– bakery workshop: you can make and bake bread and taralli;
The participation fee for this type of experience is 54 € per person. It includes both activities described, plus the third for free. The cost of an interpreter is not included in the case of a language other than Italian. Groups are created starting from a minimum of 2 adults. Children pay half up to 10 years. If you want to have two additional experiences instead of one, just add € 18 / pers (ie € 72 for a total of 4 workshops).
Early in the morning is recommended, as with all rural activities. The workshops are open between 8 and 13 and each activity lasts about 1 hour, so it is advisable to start no later than 9.00. The starting time can be indicated during the booking. The activities are available all year round, but the harvesting activity is recommended between July and December, and in the other periods it is replaced by a visit to the vegetable garden and to the production machinery.
