In recent years we have decided to pay particular attention to the tourist and educational role that the fruit chestnut grove can play by setting up, at our Ruvran chestnut grove, an educational farm where you can immerse yourself in the centuries-old chestnut culture.
Pre-school and school age children, teenagers, adults, families, groups
From March to November
Through a pleasant walk in the chestnut wood of 1 hour and a half, our guests have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a real educational path dedicated to the discovery of the world of the Garessina chestnut. The visit deals with playful aspects (interaction with the animals of the wood and the centuries-old talking tree), cultural (heritage of traditions and knowledge related to the culture of the chestnut) and cultural aspects (the grafting operations of the chestnut from theory to practice).
The visit ends in the Scau (drying room), a 19th century building in stone and wood completely renovated in 2018, where the drying process of the chestnuts is illustrated in accordance with the ancient tradition that, still today, takes place in the original drying room. At the end of the visit, a sinoira snack / tasting of the company’s products is offered.
About 2 hours
12 euros including a sinoira snack/tasting of the farm’s products (reduced rates are available for school groups, associations, after-work clubs and organized groups) Free for children up to 3 years old.
