Agriturismo Oliveta can offer many different activities. Apart from seasonal harvests, guests can enjoy helping out around the Agriturismo by feeding the chickens, collecting eggs, feeding the goats and milking, as well as finding out about the local produce, and how they are used in traditional recipes.
In mid-September you may help out with the grape harvest. Olives are collected around the end of October, depending on favourable weather. Figs are harvested twice a year in April and September.
The proprietor, Giovanna, will be pleased to show guests how to prepare many Cilento specialities, such as Sciurielli Frittate, Mulugnane M'buttunate and home-made Fusilli.
