About
Visit a shiitake mushroom farm, learn how to make it, pick it up yourself, and in the end indulge yourself with a tasting. You will arrive at the mushroom farm and we will introduce you to the farmer. After the presentation, we will walk through the farm to see the shiitake mushrooms and all the equipment and special techniques for harvesting. This is a true experience, so you will have a workshop about " mushroom inoculation" and you will pick your own shiitake mushrooms. The farmer will teach you how to taste shiitake mushrooms, and explain what makes good mushrooms —and what makes the bad stuff, too. During the lunch on the farm, you will see all the mushrooms dishes: risotto and homemade sautéed. Our experience will include: -Arrival at the farm and welcome by the producer -Guided tour of the farm -Practical mushroom inoculation workshop -Harvesting experience -Tasting mushrooms - Lunch (Drinks, mushroom risotto with homemade grilled fries, dessert and coffee)

      Being a born and raised city girl, Tina, our tour guide on Hinchley Dairy Farm, enlightened me on how a dairy farm operates in modern day America. Tina, a very hard working farmer who has devoted her life to her family farm, gives a true perspective of what a family has to do to sustain a successful and productive farm business. A must do if you are in the Cambridge area.

      Fabulous place to see
      Our visit to Quinta do Sanguinhal winery was everything we asked for and more. The winery itself is well preserved, still functioning and lovely to see. The vineyards are beautiful, as are the surrounding gardens. It truly is stunning. They hold weddings in the grounds and I can tell they are really something special. Our guide was Ana. She was friendly, engaging and very knowledgeable about her family business. I really feel that we learnt a lot on the tour. Once we moved onto the tastings, Katarina joined us to help Ana with the wine tastings. The wines were all of a high standard and the guides did a great job explaining them and giving some extra history. We all really enjoyed our experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone.
