The tour will take you to the discovery of the very first cereal to be cultivated by mankind more than 10.000 years ago, petit épeautre (tritticum monococcum). We will visit a typical Provençal family farm wher cereals were cultivated with other crops such as olives, wines and legumes.  We will have a short walking tour of the fields, and the beautiful surrounding landscapes while talking about cultivation specificities as well as the nutritional peculiar values of petit epeautre. We will than see how the cereal is processed and milled to make flour.   The visit will end with a tasting of the artisanal products of the farm.

On request a delicous home made lunch can be organized on the farm. Contact me for more info!
