The teaching activity is important in our company – the educational path helps to understand the agricultural activity, the life of the animals and the ecosystem of which they are part.
Visiting the Valgrande petting zoo will be like being in an open-air school. The walk in the vegetable garden will make us understand seasonality: what do you gather in June? And in September? Is there really a garden in December?
Our farm aims to be a link between the city life style and the countryside life style. A journey to discover the productive cycle of each crop, the discovery of animals, the fantastic world of the bees, the games of our childhood.
During the day, anything will become a chance for learning, both from the point of view of food, thanks to a snack with bread and honey, and from the environmental point of view, by teaching children to respect the nature and to love this resource that’s becoming more and more precious.
A lot of space is left to one’s sensations, while trying to train one’s five senses: the petting zoo stimulates in both adults and children the training of all their senses: from the taste to the smell, from the sight and the touch to the hearing you will feel an explosion of unforgettable experiences.
The petting zoo is the perfect summary of the Valgrande Farmhouse. We welcome schools, families, adults and all those who want to go on a journey of knowledge.
The petting zoo is also a place for active pedagogy, a concrete proof of the richness and the diversity of agriculture.
Alberto and Monica personally take care of all the aspects of the organization of the lecture meetings and the educational workshops.
The Valgrande Farmhouse is officially recognized by the Veneto Region as a Petting Zoo and has obtained the possibility of exhibiting the official logo dedicated to the petting zoos in the Veneto region.
