First reason for the achievement of a teaching farm consists in the leading role of farming in this place, and it represents the best way for getting to know the agricultural world to students, citizens and consumers. It help them to discover the origin of feed, the rural uses and the secrets of nature that is still unknown for many people.

The Didactic path winds along:
=> the didactic vegetable garden divided in lots of 4 x 10 m. with the cultivation of the main vegetable of the area (asparagus, carrots, cabbages, cauliflowers, beans, string beans, long sweet leeks, marrows…) and aromatic plants with the organic farming system.
=> the didactic greenhouse of 10 x 3,5 m. where are cultivated four varieties of peppers (Peperone di Carmagnola Quadrato, Lungo Corno di Bue, Trottola and Tumaticot).
=> the didactic orchard composed by old varieties of apple, apricot, persimmon, cherry, peach and plum trees;
=> the didactic rettery for hemp (Cannabis);
=> two fish ponds where are reared tenches (Tinca gobba dorata del Pianalto di Poirino) and carps;
=> the wood made stables and pastures for some specimen of rare breeds of Piedmont.
=> a didactic area partially covered used for the realisation of didactic laboratories;
=> photovoltaic panels on the roof of the cattleshed;
=> an amusement park for children and a large parking.
