Il Fiorello’s shop will be open after the walk so bring cash or credit card if you would like to purchase their milled-onsite local olive oils, balsamic vinegars, and other items.

Please note: This is a working farm and commercial food facility. The terrain is uneven and may have animal holes. Due to commercial food licensing requirements, no outside food may be brought into the property due to food safety concerns.
