WORKSHOPS AND ATIVITIES AT TENUTA DI PAGANICO
Let’s get our hands dirty!
“Eating is an agricultural act”
At Tenuta di Paganico we want to raise awareness of the importance of nature as a vehicle for knowledge. In order to do so, we offer different workshops and events that promote experiential learning. We hope and work hard for a future that will encourage mutualistic and honest collaborations between farmers and consumers.

WE ARE OPEN FOR LUNCH FROM TUESDAY TO SUNDAY!
..burger, fresh pasta and lots more!
Salumi (salt-cured meat) and fresh meat tasting from our organic production paired with a glass of red wine.
Farm to table (farm tour + tasting):
Guided farm tour of our organic Maremmana cow and Cinta Senese pig breeding system followed by a ‘light lunch’ based on products from the farm. By offering this tour we hope our guests can get a better understanding of what’s behind a closed-loop production farm.
We welcome couples, groups, kids and adults (booking is mandatory).
If you’re looking for a more hands-on activity we have just the right workshops for you:
- Fresh pasta making basics
- Salumi making basics
We offer activities related to “preserving” in the strict meaning of the word which comes from the latin root prae-servo or “guard, watch over”. Many traditional production methods of the area are focused on this concept and the promotion of them is what keeps them from ceasing.
- Cork for breakfast
Do you know what cork is?
From from May to July we invite you to join us in the discovery of a magical material: cork. You’ll witness the cork extraction and the secrets and technique behind it. How is it obtained? Why is is important to take care of the cork oaks?
The tour is followed by a picnic breakfast in the forest between the cork oaks.
- Designing and building charcoal pits
In 1100 hectares of forest between tall oaks and Mediterranean scrub you can talk about almost anything: discoveries, footprints, dens, animals… With the help of a couple of nature guides you might be able to find what you are looking for.
