What you'll do

We will meet in Quattrostrade at the bus stop (you can come by your car or by bus that you will take in Florence at the bus station), you will get to the farm where you will be welcomed by the farm owners and offered a coffee and cake. You will then be involved in the various seasonal activities taking place on the farm: such as feeding our friendly animals, picking vegetables in the kitchen garden and fruit, observing the way delicious jams are made, harvesting grapes at the end of September, picking olives in November or learning how to prune vines or olive trees in winter. In other words, you will be farmers for a day. At lunchtime, you will prepare pasta and other typical dishes with and under the guidance of the farm owners. After that, we all taste all our products, including olive oil and complimentary wine.
