A magical experience that far exceeded my expectations. Jerusa and her family are wonderful. You pick most of the ingredients for your lunch from their tiered organic farm is nestled in the Montseny mountains. Everything is so authentic, heart-felt, and welcoming. You end your afternoon with a dip in their pool, a delicious paella and brilliant conversation. This is an experience for lovers of nature, good food, good company and authenticity.

The perfect daytrip from Barcelona! I took the train, R3 direction Vic, from Arco de Triunfo station directly to La Garriga, which in itself merits a visit for the modernist houses and general charm. Jerusa picked me up in her little van and brought me to the farm. We started with a coffee under a wonderful pergola covered with wine grapes and Jerusa gave a introduction to our experience. Tour of the farm and picking ingredients for our lunch was then delightfully combined. My admiration for ecological farming deepened. Before preparing the meal together at the long table in the kitchen, we guests took a dip in the pool and was offered an apertivo to nice! The cooking part was fun, working together means less effort, I also learned about Spanish paella ”religions”! Our meal was the peak of the experience of course, it felt welldeserved and was absolutely delicious. Before leaving I was happy to buy some marmelades and a chutney and Jerusa, a truly generous spirit, gave me some veggies and left overs to bring home. I will do this again! Perhaps with friends, or family

Increíble experiencia si buscas algo diferente y único en tu visita a Barcelona. El lugar es hermoso la atención de Jerusa es excelente, la comida deliciosa y la plática fue tan amena ! En verdad disfrutamos ! Lo recomendamos ampliamente tanto a turistas como locales ya que el alejarse un poco del caos que es ahorita las ciudades y estar rodeando por el paisaje natural es la mejor opción !

The experience with Jerusa was just the best! Me and friend wanted to attend for a while and now that we finally did it we can say its totally worth it. We had some train issues and got at the station 1h later, but once we got at Jerusa’s everything was perfect. To begin with we had a little welcome drink and then walked into the garden to pick some delicious veggies with our own hands and then once done had a quick dip in her pool before starting with the hard work and chopping all the vegetables to prepare our paella. Despite the heat, we loved the preparation and even more sharing this meal with Jerusa and her family. We felt like at a friends house and her welcoming spirit made us feel super comfortable. Totally recommend, we will surely be back!

We've spent a fantastic day at Jerusa's! Her little farm lies in the mountains, completely surrounded by trees, it's perfect to relax and slow down. We made a vegetable Paella with her self-grown vegetables. They were insanely tasty, nothing compared to the store-bought stuff. We picked them up together with Jerusa while she explained lots of interesting things about farming in Spain. The whole atmosphere was amazing as well. Jerusa is very friendly and we felt just like home. 10/10 would recommend!
