What you'll do
Let's learn how to cook traditional Tuscan dishes with aromatic herbs! In our organic farm overlooking fields of olive tree and vineyards, we grow a huge variety of aromatic herbs: oregano, dill, thyme, rosemary, and sage that are essential to complement and enlighten our meals. In an unhurried walk through our fields, we will teach you how to recognize and harvest each of them. If there is time we will also visit our cellar and have information about our wines. Once back to the farm we will learn how to prepare a tasty lunch (hands-on class) with the supervision of me or Jim. Then we will lunch in a fresh patio in summer or in our old style kitcken lightned by a fire place in winter. During the experience, you will have the opportunity to taste olive oil and wine of our own production. After lunch from May to October you can enjoy our swimming pool while in other seasons we will visit the farm and the cellar.At the end of the experience we will take at the station of San Miniato to take a train to Firenze ( 35 minutes ; 5 euro )
