Lou Rosé educational farm
- € 5.00 half day, educational activities with biscuit tasting
accompanied by fruit juice.
- € 8.00 whole day, educational activities with tastings of farm products.
Initially born for cultivating cereals for family use – mainly corn for the production of polenta flour – over the last 20 years the family has recognised this production an even greater significance, giving life to a farm dealing with the transformation and marketing of products.
In addition to corn, vegetables are grown such as potatoes, tomatoes, salad etc. for direct sale and soft fruits such as raspberries, blackcurrants and gooseberries, directly transformed in the farm into jams and fruit juices used in the agritourism. Following a short stretch of dirt road, the fields can be observed and the craft workshop can be reached, where it is possible to see cereals being milled and their transformation into pastries. At the farmhouse there are also hens, turkeys, geese and ducks. Since 2005 the facility has grown and in the old Rosé farmhouse, which dates back to the 1700’s, the agritourism has opened which offers rooms with breakfast and educational activities.
The agritourism facilities (inside dining room, bathrooms and meadow) can be used to have lunch.
