Agricampus - Summer day for groups and School Campus

An holiday half-way between nature, tradition and sport

Live an exciting rural experience to discover and rediscover the sky, the earth and the secrets of the Friulian countryside. “Nihil Agricultura Melius” (Cicero), fun and joy riding on the farm.

For the summer season we offer children an experience of peasant life, of knowledge of the nature that surrounds us and of the animals.

The educational farm allows children to learn about genuine food and to discover how the foods that make up our diet are produced.

Our goal is to bring children closer to the countryside, teach them the rudiments of organic farming and to recognize the true flavors of food produced according to nature with the hope that after the day, they will no longer eat stereotyped and anonymous sandwiches, asphyxiated snacks and foods. frozen, but look for tasty cured meats, fragrant cheeses, fragrant soups, genuine homemade sweets. Polenta, buckwheat bread, grape juice and organic apples will accompany their day.

The Agricampus weeks run from June to early September, from Monday to Friday and from 8:30 to 17:30, with the possibility of attending the campus even for just half a day, with or without lunch.
