Take the chance to work in the market garden alongside an expert, visit the breeding area for the black pigs grazing freely in the woods and really get to grips with agricultural biodiversity; sweetly scented wines, cold cuts from the black pig, Parmigiano Reggiano, other local cheeses, jams and bread made from historical grains. Let the silence of the green hills of Parma embrace you as you sleep inside the park in a comfortable and well equipped wooden cabin and give yourself up to this moment of relaxation in contact with nature.
