The green pea from the Berici Hills (Vicenza) is famous for its goodness. This activity for the entire family is a relaxing morning trying the real peas harvest from the vine. There’s nothing more delicious than the first tender peas, picked right off the vine, shelled and eaten raw!
A morning of Fattoria Didattica or “teaching farm” at the Agriturismo Da Sagraro Farm in Mossano – Berici Hills, dedicated to the local green peas. And at the end of the activity all sitting at the table to taste the fettuccine coi piselli just picked and cooked, course with good local wine.

The event will run with any weather condition. These days are with variable weather conditions so during the morning with any probability we’ll have enough time without rain to get out and do the peas harvest. Anyway, in case of ongoing heavy rain we will be forced not to pick the peas in the vine. We will shell the peas and during the fettuccine egg pasta preparation we will have wine tasting. Plus a longer lunch!
