The farm

logo fatt did reg campDoing the educational Farm means trying to reach one of the most important goals of the farm: bridging the gap between urban culture and rural culture, which had been increasing since the beginning of the sixties due to the large migration of workers from the agricultural sectors to industries and public sectors.

This objective can be achieved during a holiday at a farm house, especially when the farm houses are transformed into educational farms. This is achieved by captivating the interest and involving the young visitors and adults too, in various activities; such as the preparation of food products (jams, bread, meat and cheese), nature exploration, environmental education and the direct collection of fruits and vegetables.
On an educational farm, toddlers and children have the opportunity to discover many new things by themselves, that were previously unknown or only seen in books. They can experience at first hand an intense and stimulating contact with nature.
Their innate curiosity about what surrounds them is fulfilled through unique activities and educational tours, which are creative and constructive thanks to which we can learn the importance of tradition and nature.

The teaching methodology of the farm is based on the active pedagogy of learn to do by doing making it an extremely effective educational tool which pursues a number of important purposes:

  • To educate children and adolescents about healthy diets and eating habits and conscio consumption informing them about production techniques and the quality of specific products.
  • Promote agriculture with low environmental impact and protection of the environment.
  • spreading the values and culture of the rural world by reducing the gap between city and countryside and at the same time, enhancing the role of the farmer.
  • Promoting knowledge of the local situation and the specificities of the territory.
  • Teaching how to use our senses as tools to evaluate the quality of products on our tables.


The Alvaneta farm organizes company visits, offering various activities that are the result of careful design and testing in order to provide quality educational courses which are divided into:

  • practical activities, such as preparation of homemade pasta or jams.
  • sensory activities, such as guided food tasting.
  • recreational activities, such as walking and hiking in the woods.
