I am headed to Italy in a few weeks. In addition to seeking out some of the restaurants found on this board, I would like to visit a few food producers. Small or large; guided tour or just a visit; fish, factory, farm, fowl, or fennel: as long as it is interesting. In Tuscany we will be based in Grosseto south of Siena toward the coast. Our Umbria base is between Gualdo Tadino and Foligno. There will be four of us and we will have a car for day trips.
Anyone had any special experiences they would like to share?
