U Lumbardi se živi u skladu s godišnjim dobima i prirodom. U rano su proljeće poljski putovi puni šetača koji beru divlje šparoge "bljušće". Cijelu jesen se beru gljive poput rujnica, govedara, lisičica, vrganja. Rujan je rezerviran za berbu grožđa, dok se tijekom listopada i studenog beru masline. Nekoliko dana nakon berbe grožđa kuša se slajčica i jede specijalitet "bravetina". Ovaj gastonomski izazov dobar je razlog za posjet Lumbardi nakon sezone.
