At Delizia d’Este the concept of an agro-touristic business is fully expanded and includes both traditional farming activities such as horticultural and fruit cultivations as well as more innovative agricultural activities such as dog breeding, a B&B and a didactic farm. The breeding, selection and training of dog breeds have been recognized for almost two decades as farming activities in all respects.
The Farm produces melons, watermelons, other fruit and vegetables, which are sold on site in summer.
In particular, melon and watermelon are typical products of Ferrara’s territory, already known and appreciated fruit at the time of the Este’s Court. They are waiting for the IGP certification and are among the “17 pearls of Ferrara“, gastronomic products of excellence of our territory.
