La Fattorietta: Rome's farm

This farm and cultural association on four hectares near St Peter’s Basilica offers seasonal workshops and activities for children over four, including helping with the harvest, learning how to grow vegetables, making bread, jam, fresh pasta and cheese, even milking a goat.

This urban farm was founded in 2002 to teach children about farm life and to foster love and respect for animals and the environment.

On Sundays it organises events, workshops and guided tours open to everyone from 11.00 until 15.00. Reservation is recommended.

La Fattorietta is also open for visits by appointment only from Monday to Saturday, from 10.00 to 12.30 and from 15.00-18.00. For full details see website or Facebook page.
