Itinerary

Rise and venture out of town to the only ecological & experimental farm in the Basque Country and taste what they're producing!

Save your morning pastry, this one is on me, we'll hop on the local train to a neighbouring town, 11 minutes away.
Once we get there we'll walk to the farm for a hands-on learning experience where you'll discover the amazing projects they have such as academic research, veggie boxes and an inclusive initiative that works towards social integration and employment for people with mental disabilities.

On this tour, you'll learn about the history and culture of agriculture in the Basque Country, understand what harvesting ecologically means and most importantly you'll get to eat fresh and taste the season's harvest surrounded by flowers and celebrate with a local drink.

*Early mornings are the best time to visit the farm!

A Recent Review of this tour

My expectations were open as they should be when you are dealing with crops and time of season for vegetables. My tour guide Christina was very passionate about the information shared about the Basque area. Her culinary experience and knowledge of Basque was a great introduction to what we both experienced at the farm. The proprietor, Amara, was personable and knowledgeable of the vegetables. The farm also helps locals with special needs. Worth the trip. I am an avid gardener. So perfect for me!
