In the Umbria episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy visits a local agriturismo where grain, greens and herbs are harvested.
At her family’s agriturismo in Castel San Felice, Marta Giampiccolo leads half-day (starting at 14€ per person) and full-day courses in foraging for greens and herbs. She offers saffron harvesting courses in October and November. (Instruction is available in English on request.) The B&B’s small farm shop is always open (as the family lives upstairs) and sells saffron, apples, jams, dried herbs, spelt (farro), lentils and honey. There are three rooms/suites available for stays for those who wish to spend more time exploring the area. For more information, visit: www.zafferanoedintorni.it
