On the farm it is
possible experiencing also didactic activities for students interested
in the production of "farro", a typical product of Garfagnana
whose growing is highly protected (has obtained the brand of I.G.P.,
"Indicazione Geografica Protetta").
in Campagnola there is an apple-orchard of about 120 trees. It
doesnt produce very big apples but they are extremely juicy. They
are picked and left to ripen on straw
on the pictures to enlarge them
Wheat, corn and chestnuts
are grown too. You can have berries and mushrooms which are well-known
all over the region. The farm produces apple and chestnut jams, liqueurs
made with bilberry, syrups, and vegetables in oil.
"Farro" is undoubtedly the "button-hole" of the Campagnola
farm. Part of the products are sold by a consortium of growers and a part
by the farm itself.
The remaining area of the farm grows forage for the animals. About ten
dairy cows, cows for meat, pigs, poultry and rabbits are bred on the farm
and are served at the local farm restaurant.
