The love for animals and the territory are the basis behind the creation of Cascina Gabutti, an Educational farmhouse and Punto Campagna Amica point located on the hills of Monforte d’Alba.
The company’s 16 hectares are mainly dedicated to cultivating grapevines, in particular the Nebbiolo from Barolo, and a small production of fruit and vegetables.
Monia, the owner, may “appear” to be a farmer but in fact she doesn’t consider farming as work, rather a style of life.
By her side is Valter, who knows the agricultural world quite well and is the one responsible for the farmland.
There are numerous animals in the farmhouse’s courtyard, including three friendly donkeys, a goat, piglets, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, rabbits, chickens, turkeys, two peacocks and many more.
Various workshops and activities are offered, suitable for all ages, to help rediscover the wonders and simplicity of rural life.
From the egg to the chick
Showing children how hatching takes place and explaining to parents the properties, the structure and the use of eggs, dispelling even some urban legends.
The bread workshop
First we have fun kneading by hand, giving shape to the mixture, and we then listen to the legends, proverbs and the farmer’s know-how as we wait for the bread that’s cooking in the oven.
The agricultural vehicles
An interesting and intriguing journey through time to learn about how the work in the fields has changed over the years.
Taking care of the garden and fruit trees
Depending on the time of year we sow, take care of the land or harvest by observing the various vegetative stages of the fruit and vegetable plants.
Walking through the vineyards
A stroll amongst the vineyards to help discover the territory and its vines, the vineyard cycle, the work between the vine rows, etc.
The activities we propose are designed for:
- groups of children, visiting with school classes, for which theme days can be organized depending on the age of the group;
- adults, so they can rediscover the pleasure of living peacefully in a relaxing environment;
- families who wish to share the experience with their children; learning while having fun.
At the Cascina you can try our Langhet, the grape juice without alcohol or added sugar that is ideal for all ages. It’s made with chardonnay, dolcetto, barbera and nebbiolo grapes.
Cascina Gabutti, furthermore, is a Punto Campagna Amica point, which guarantees the sale of strictly agricultural and Italian products, and is part of the Piedmont Region Educational Farmhouses project.
And of course from the grapes we produce wines, which however are not processed directly on the farm.
The activities are available in Italian and English.
Your pets are more than welcome. Large dogs however must wear a muzzle.
