EXPO 2015 IN THE FARM
The Expo 2015 is an opportunity for teaching all the aspects linked to food, from its historical and cultural origins to production quality and sustainability. The cycle of activities at Borgoluce provides people with the tools they need to understand these aspects: from the product to its origins.
In the Borgoluce farm there are four new Expo tour:

From the ear to the loaf
Country folks would make their own bread; they didn't need to buy it from the baker's! This workshop will show the entire production cycle of bread, starting with the wheat: seedlings, grains, flour, farming equipment (scythe, millstone, sieve, cheesecloth) and kitchen utensils help in understanding and remembering. Finally, they knead all the ingredients together and make bread buns, bake them in the oven ... and taste them!

Wild herbs, a source of nourishment and symbol of biodiversity
Before they grew crops and raised animals, men use to eat wild herbs and animals. Now that farming is the primary source of our food, wild herbs are only used in traditional country recipes, but they still grow in uncultivated places and are an example of biodiversity. Visitors set off from the farmhouse on a journey of discovery into the surrounding fields and learn to distinguish the elements created by man from natural ones and to understand the importance of biodiversity. In farmed fields, pastures and woodland, they learn to recognise wild herbs and their uses in the kitchen.

What a resource the buffalo is: from mozzarella to energy
Learn to recognise the differences between cow’s and buffalo milk and discover all the characteristics of buffalo mozzarella.  Then they follow the entire production cycle from the stalls to the cheese plant, understanding what a supply chain is and why it must be short to guarantee product quality and sustainability. Finally, a visit to the biodigester teaches them how, in the production cycle, everything is important, even manure, which can be used to produce energy for heating the stalls and as organic fertiliser for the fields.

The revolution of polenta: corn from America to the Veneto countryside
In the rest of Italy, people from Veneto are often referred to as “polentoni” – we find out why! We tell our young visitors how the corn from Latin America has become a typical, traditional agricultural and culinary product in Veneto; we explain the importance of recuperating a variety such as the white Biancoperla in safeguarding farming biodiversity and the culture of a geographical area. Using the by-products of corn processing, Borgoluce farm produces clean energy: this is the starting point for understanding how activities interlink for responsible use of resources to avoid waste.
 



WEITERE NÜTZLICHE HINWEISE
The activities are held in two locations: 

Casa Forcolera is a typical rural building surrounded by nature, in the hills among vineyards, olive groves and orchards, with a splendid view of San Salvatore castle. 

Mandre is a farm centre on the plain, surrounded by fields and home to the stalls housing 350 buffalos, the cheese and drying plants, the biodigester, the ancient mill and the Museum of Crafts and Country Life.

BORGOLUCE - MANDRE


The Borgoluce estate covers 1200 hectares in Susegana: pastures, woodlands, farms, arable fields, vineyards, orchards, canals, mills, dairies. In the twelfth century, this variety enabled us to produce everything necessary for daily life inside the estate.Today, this tradition remains: it is called biodiversity, and it is the most natural way to keep the soil rich and fertile, protecting the life of every species in the ecosystem.
