A magical morning spent in the countryside of Montefalco! We begin with a visit to a family farm where we will meet the animals, notably various breeds of Italian cattle, and sample cheeses and yogurt made from their cows, sheep and goats!
We then take a stroll through the beautiful hilltop village of Montefalco to see local producers of linens, olive wood and more!
Our final stop is a small farm just under the walls of the town where we will learn about biodiversity and how all of the animals ‘help out’ from honeybees, to chickens & geese, to the pigs and sheep! We conclude the day enjoying a light lunch using only products from the farm.
The tour will depart from Bevagna at 9:30 am. Guests may follow the guide with their own cars or transportation can be arranged for an additional fee. During the tour we will visit two young local farms and we will be walking through a medieval hilltown as well as the farms. On the farms we will see cows, sheep, goats, pigs, geese, chickens, rabbits. Some animals are for milking to make cheese and some are raised for the purpose of meat production. We recommend closed-toe sturdy walking shoes. Cheese tasting and lunch are both included. The day will conclude around 3:30. Please advise of any dietary restrictions.
