Here’s an interesting agro-tourism suggestion in Osona, more specifically in Lluçanès: the Milk Route, an original and educational way of discovering part of the region that will delight old and young alike. The getaway offers the possibility of exploring livestock farms with cows, sheep and goats on guided tours, and trying the products made there. And the information published by the Consorci del Lluçanès and that you can download lists the nearby restaurants where they serve the dishes made with the products of the Milk Route and also where to stay.
IN COLLABORATION WITH BARCELONA ÉS MOLT MÉS OF THE DIPUTACIÓ DE BARCELONA.
The farms you can visit are practically all concentrated in three places: Lluçà, Perafita and Prats de Lluçanès. It’s a compact route but that allows you to get to know a wide variety of farms related to dairy products. In the words of the Consorci del Lluçanès, "the farmers simultaneously use and pass on traditional knowledge and the latest farming and animal husbandry technologies" and adds that the workshops in the area "have found their own way of making unique products." There are suggestions for accommodation and restaurants in these three places but also others in Lluçanès, Alpens, La Torre d'Oristà, Olost, Sant Bartomeu del Grau, Sant Boi de Lluçanès, Santa Maria de Merlès and Sant Agustí de Lluçanès. The farms that can be visited at present are Formatges de Lluçà, Formatges Betara, El Soler de n'Hug and Postres artesanes Santa Eulàlia.
