educational farm. October, Sunday 14th

Veneto region, where we live, is basically a rural area, rich in farms. many of them are educational farms, which means that they collaborate with schools, teaching kids about how a farm works, where their food comes from, the importance of the enviroment.
usually, these kind of practical lessons are just for the students, but on sunday there was the Open Day of Veneto Educational Farms, so many farms opened their gates to show to anyone interested how their work is done. for someone who loves his land, cares about enviroment, and about eating well, this was a good chance to learn something.

we spent the day in Borgoluce, a farm managed by the Collalto family {mentioned here, too}, located in the famous Prosecco hills, between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. they produce wine, meat and charcuterie, flours {from Biancoperla corn too, a Slow Food Ark of Taste}, dairy products {I have to come back for the red fruits yogurt..}, oil, honey and, above all, clean energy.  
we saw the buffalos stable {they are lovely}, and were impressed by the biodigester and cogenerator, which  produce biogas from animal effluent and agricultural products, to be then transformed into electricity and heat.

and then? We ate, of course. we cannot talk all morning about km 0 food {local food from-farm-to-table} without tasting it. in case you wonder, it was delicious. we had some samples of buffalo milk mozzarella, stracchino, robiola, salame and cotechino.  

thank you so much Borgoluce, we'll come back soon
