Trentino in un Barattolo - Made by me
Spend an autumn weekend in a farmhouse and discover how to make preserves, jams and anything else that fits in a jar
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
Imagine standing in a meadow in the sharp early morning light of September, the sun still radiates a bit of heat, the country air is crisp. You meet up with others and set off in search of the plants you need, you gather fruits and vegetables and then off you go to prepare some preserves!
The "Trentino in un Barattolo" (Made by me) initiative is aimed at those who wish to get to know the local food, people and countryside. Indeed, this autumn you will be able to harvest what the season has to offer: apples, plums, walnuts and vegetables and prepare preserves, sauerkraut, pickled vegetables, pesto, creams and anything else you can preserve in a jar and take away with you. You’ll also learn how to use these ingredients in the kitchen with tasty recipes and traditional desserts.
From September through to mid-November, for a total of ten weekends, sixteen farmhouses across Trentino welcome you for a unique experience, from the ground to the table. Treat yourself to a reinvigorating autumn break in the countryside, far from the hustle and bustle, spend a night in a farmhouse and get to know the people that help keep this territory alive. Dedicated to those who appreciate slow, responsible tourism, wholesome food and wish to change the usual concept of holiday-making. Join us and discover the genuine heart of Trentino!
