We lucked up and happened upon this experience and we are so pleased. We were picked up in front of our apartment in Sorrento and driven by car to join a group of 20 at a small lemon and olive working farm. This farm is the home of Eugenio and his family. They live off of the two acres with vegetables, poultry and also they harvest their own ham. They have groves of lemons and 300 year old olives. Eugenia's father showed us how he grafts the lemon trees to make them produce from orange trees. Eugenio's mother served us sliced lemon and grapefruit with sugar as well as her own lemoncello and lemoncello tiramisu. If the farm tour weren't enough, Bennedetto, a registered provolone de Monico cheese maker, walked us through what makes this cheese unique. We tasted this cheese as well as Ricotta that was a couple of hours old as well as watched him make this region's version of Mozzarella. I cannot remember the correct name. All of this was served with home made bread. We also tasted this bread with three olive oils made from the products from Eugenio's farm...orange, lemon and regular Extra virgin olives oils. This was all served with their own home made wine. After all of this we walked 200 yards to Lucio's Pizzeria "da fransesco." There we were taught how to make the best crust with flour, water and pear. Yes...pear no yeast. Each of us took a turn tossing our pizza crust and added our own toppings before Lucio cooked it in his fired oven. We learned so many things today and will tell everyone we meet what a special experience it was. We were told to expect this to take five ours but because we waited out an unusual rain shower we were a bit longer. Not a problem as we all had a great time. We were returned to Sorrento by our same driver. The price of this experience was very reasonable.
