I'm aware of the various food producers that can be toured particularly around Parma and Modena. There's the Parma ham producers, the Parmesan cheese producers, the balsamic vinegar producers around Modena, and the mozzarella farms south of Napoli.
My question is about the spaghetti orchards. I know that much of the pasta, especially spaghetti, is from the south but I've never found the orchards. I just saw a BBC piece with the reporter being taken on a tour of the trees. The spaghetti was just hanging from the trees, almost like those really long beans.
Has anybody here been on a tour of the plantations? Does the bigger pasta grow the same way?
