ABOUT CAR TO FARM
Originally started as a culinary road-trip vacation in 2015, Car to Farm is now a curated farm-to-table tour that explores the homemade side of cooking in the Italian countryside and with a focus on body and mind wellness. Yoga, meditation, and jogging will be offered along with cooking lessons led by the local farm and small business owners, and inspired by a more plant-based and seasonal diet.
The first itinerary, called NORDOVEST is named after the Italian translation of North West, and will explore 3 locations in the Italian regions of Lombardia, Liguria, and Tuscany.
WHAT WILL YOU EXPERIENCE?
1 medieval town
Each location offers the most authentic local food. No menu will be necessary. We are very mindful of your allergies and intolerances, if any.
As this is a farm-to-table focused tour, you won't only see just farm and food. In fact, you will take part in much more, like cooking, produce picking, and hands-on classes!
We believe in body & mind health and we will inspire you to take our daily yoga and meditation classes offered every morning by a local practitioner, right before we start our explorations. You can also join Mauro in the afternoon for a jog in the local area. You will get to learn about therapeutic-grade essential oils to support common conditions, and you'll be able to try Colorpuncture, a technology similar to acupuncture but with colors and light, and without needles.
Car to Farm will connect you to local people that really care about their guests not as clients, but instead making sure everyone will leave like family!
The people that will host us are not your average travel industry professionals. They are members of the communities that are passionate about their land and their culture, and love this opportunity to share it all with you.
Each location comes with activities tied to the local territories, such as wine and olive oil plant visits and daily farm activities. We also keep an eye on local festivals and "sagre popolari" where we can join the locals in celebrating the harvest or other popular tradition.
