Workshop from wheat to bread

The workshop from wheat grains to bread starts in the farm multimedia room, where children take a trip back in time by watching a short documentary film; the experience continues with a short walk to discover the secrets of organic farming, natural forests and livestock management.

The final step is at the Miller’s workshop to assist to the long cycle of processing wheat grains into bread, including: cleaning, sieving, milling, mixing, baking in oven and … tasting!
