The Educational Farm for schools
The educational farm, surrounded by the countryside, is made from an old barn. In the didactic park you can meet the five typical environments of the territory: the rural environment, the lake and the humid area, the pasture, the orchard and the wood. There are also lawns, gardens and a nice pool to play. We have the stables with horses and foals and a stable with fences where cows and calves graze. Sometimes a surprise: two small eyes, a tail that moves in the grass... a calf is born!!!The educational Farm plans didactic visits for schools
, offering activities and workshops for kids of kindergarten, primary school and secondary school. For further information and find out your suitable workshop, call the number 349 2426013.

What are educational farms?
An educational farm
is an agriculture or touristic company, where “active” educational activities are held, especially for kids and children. The company keeps being a productive reality at all the effects, education is an integration to the normal activities. These promoted by the farm are held by our qualified staff.
The aim of the educational farm is to promote the knowledge of activities that take place in the farm, involving the guests (kids, teenagers and also adults) in the realization of a typical “product” or in other agriculture activities, such as the harvest of fruit and vegetable products.
Why are they so important?
Educational farms make contact between urban world and rural world.
They open to the public the farms through the promotion and education. They promote in the new generations and sociaties traditions and customs of the country culture. Most importantly, educational farms improve crafts and artesanal manual skill
with direct experience. The educative value of the project and the possibility to requalify the agriculture activities as a complementary source of income and marketing tool contribute to the most popolarity of the iniziative in Italy and in the world.
Functions of educational farms
The legislative decree 228 of 18 May 2001, “Orientation and modernization of the agriculture sector”, indicates the recreational and educational activities that aim to a better knowldge of the territory among the multifunctional activities of a farmer.
Modernity, urbanization and industrialization have allowed to pay less attention to the countries activities, local products and transformations that these have to face before arriving to the supermarket and then our tables. Educational farms represent the ideal place where observe in person nature and agriculture work.
Under the guidance of qualified operators, adults and children learn to know better the rural environment, plants, animals and the products of the land. They try new typical agriculture activities and ancient crafts.
