Join us for an unforgettable “farm to table” experience at small, family-run Estates, in the mountains of Umbria. Depending on the time of year you will be able to immerse yourself in: edible plant foraging and cooking; wine grape harvesting and winemaking (the traditional way…barefoot!); extra-virgin olive oil tasting; goat milking and cheese making plus bread and pizza-making in the wood-fired oven. And how about a unique “Cheese making from barn to fork”?
If milking goats and making mozzarella or ricotta cheese sounds like your cup of tea, then give us a shout.
More Information on our “Farm to Table” Tours
The small Farms we usually visit on our foodie adventures are certified organic, but you’ll soon realize that there is so much more than the buzzword “organic”, that makes their food special. These virtuous establishments combine the best aspects of traditional local agriculture with the best ideas and practices in modern agriculture, working to achieve a sustainable system. On our “Farm to Table” tours, non-farmers get the opportunity to get their hands dirty and learn about where their food comes from. Also, you might want to start your own farm too: an experience like this might prove invaluable.
In addition, you’ll immerse yourself in the culinary traditions of rural Umbria and witness real farm lifestyle and methods of farming, as well as wine making, production of olive oil, meats, cheese, honey and other types of food, that are typical to these area of Italy.
Indulge in generous tastings of regional specialties and most of all get to know the locals and have fun.
