Our farm is located on the slopes of Montebracco in Barge (CN). We are in the Infernotto Valley a few steps from the Monviso and from the source of the river Po. We have a mixed farm with 140 milk goats and a cultivation of herbs. We transform milk in our dairy and produce raw milk cheese. We have a family garden. Our commitment for the future is to make our farm as multi-functional as possible. In the season from mid-June to the end of September we go up to the mountain pasture of Montebracco. The mountain pasture has a special charm because from the top you can see all the surrounding valleys and the surrounding villages including a magnificent view of Monviso. We are a young family with 4 children. We speak some English, French and German. We host in tents or caravans. We like to share our life with sunny people who love nature and with a spirit of adaptation to the environment. We have no prejudices about orientations and lifestyles that are not obsessions. We are happy to start this new adventure, see you soon.

Our farm is a small wine producing business in Dogliani, in the heart of the Piedmontese Langhe, an area famous all over the the world for the richness and quality of its wines. We have a small production (about 10-12 thousand bottles a year) and are attentive to traditions and respect for nature, therefore offering genuine and quality wines, in particular three different types of Dogliani Docg (a different wine from each vineyard) and we also carry out some original experiments with our wine making.. Lucia and Silvio work with love, passion and energy: "We aim at quality and not quantity, and we base our philosophy on the protection of the vineyard, its health and, consequently, on the production of natural and healthy wines which in ten years has brought many appreciations and awards". The quality of our products is largely the result of a natural choice of life: We believe in the balance between tradition and innovation, and we are convinced that to obtain a quality wine, fully respecting nature and health, we must work mainly in the vineyard, intervening the minimum necessary in the cellar. This, in our opinion, allows us to recognize the original and unique peculiarities not only of the different vineyards, but also of the individual different vines which is therefore reflected in the characteristics of the wines. In the vineyard and in the cellar cleanliness and attention reign, but also research and comparison. To pass on our experience and to learn different techniques. We provide our knowledge and are ready to confront methods and philosophies different than our own. We are happy to share moments of work, learning, but also taste, conviviality and relaxation with new friends who come to visit us on the farm.
We are located in a mountain village in the Maritime Alps Park, at 730m above sea level. We are a young family of farmers, artisans and creative people. We love nature very much and try to continuously improve ourselves in our work to learn and share new experiences. Here we grow using organic method potatoes, rye, tomatoes, onions, chestnuts and soft fruit both for self-consumption and for direct sales. The most common jobs are firewood, picking fruit and vegetables, drying, taking care of the vegetable garden, cleaning rooms, making preserves and baking bread in a clay oven that we have built. There is also to take care of a small henhouse for family use; we collect the eggs to make a lot of cakes and sweets. All you need to build a self-sufficient life. The house is rustic and large with a large porch and garden. The food is genuine, we consume together what we produce, without waste. Our farm is family-run, so we greatly appreciate the help of volunteers, one or two at a time that we host during the period of opening, in a room with bathroom or tent (equipped with bed and light) shared by both sexes. We are surrounded by mountains and ample space to immerse yourself in nature, cycling routes and climbing cliffs. We live the work as a team game, a "means" to stay in touch with the earth, and a "place" of sharing, exchange and sociability. Who wants to come is welcome! We speak Italian, good French and a little bit of Spanish and English.

The farm is situated in Borgata Carpaneta Vergne, in the Province of Cuneo, just a few kilometers from the Bassa Langa, Unesco site, Piedmont. The farm is of approximately 10 has: woods, gardens, 3 greenhouses, orchards, wheat, corn and buckwheat. Our agricultural practice is to use the techniques of biodynamic agriculture and organic farming. In addition to this the farm is part of a ecovillage project. We are a group of 5 families with 2 children and along with other persons interested in the project we are renovating an eighteenth-century farmhouse in a hamlet in Cherasco. We are restructuring by using the techniques of green building and self construction. In addition, to finance this, we often organize events, group dinners with local organic produce, biodynamic and natural baking courses, emotional circles for women etc. The house in which the wwoofers will be hosted is the home of a couple who are part of the project. We are immersed in the countryside. We can accommodate 1 or 2 WWOOFer with shared kitchen and private bathroom. On a typical day a volunteer wakes up, eats breakfast together with Stefano, the head of the agricultural project, and together you go to the farm. After a mornings work we have lunch together. In the afternoon the volunteer can choose to explore the surrounding area (since we are very close to the Bassa Langa) get to know the other farms in the group, or you can lend a hand with the work on the house or with the organization of any events. In the evening we prepare dinner together and eat as a family or with the community, as you prefer. Bicycles are available to get around and visit the villages in Bassa Langa.

Situated in the Italian Alps in Piedmont, our small farm, located in Oncino - Sant'Ilario is at an altitude of 1300 just below Mount Viso, in a marginal and sparsely inhabited valley. The nearest shops are located about ten kms away and there are no buses. Using organic farming methods and - mostly manually - we cultivate vegetables, potatoes and soft fruit. From spring to autumn, we harvest wild herbs and roots for food. We share our lives with many animals: goats, geese, turkeys, chickens, roosters, dogs, cats, etc., we do not eat them but have them to keep them to keep alive and animate the landscape and help the sustainability. The wildlife (such as wild boar) that damages the fauna are the main problems which we need to contain. We need to combat soil erosion, clean up the forests, restore dry stone walls and paths, and sometimes to clear access to our land for reclamation, cultivation, fodder production or extracting products from the woods. Here we do not cook meat or fish, even for our guests who need to be basically vegetarian and vegan, accommodation is in the agritourism. No smoking! This farm is not recommended for smokers and people who suffer from loneliness or who who need a lively social environment. Phone reception is not great but when there are no technical hitches there is wi-fi. We speak French, Spanish and English.
For the last ten years we have embarked on a path of renovating some ruined houses and land in the abandoned region of Langhe. The ancient barn will be for a few years in self-construction and its slow restoration is consistent with the criteria of bio-architecture. Therefore, one should not expect the typical Langa villa already perfectly restored with fresh flowers in a huge bathroom, more a complex of rural houses at the limit of practicability, with only one bathroom in a small basement adjacent to the kitchen. At the moment you will be accommodated in two rooms of the house where we also live and we will have the kitchen and a small bathroom in common (the doors and windows are not completely hermetic but for the winter we have many blankets!). I am almost always alone on the farm and sometimes I have close relatives who give me a hand or replace me when I am absent, but unfortunately they do not speak foreign languages ​​(and I only speak a little English and French). The most stimulating time for you is from late April to mid-October, where there will certainly be no risk of getting bored, also because on hot days the alarm is set for around 5.30! Nearby there is a nice microbrewery that can be easily reached on foot, while for the nearest town is an hour away. Being a bit isolated, it is the ideal place for those who need an introspective time with Nature and the Elements! At the moment the interest for you guests should revolve precisely on the practices today which are perhaps a little "prehistoric" of the manual management of the vineyard (by hand, hoe, sickle) and on the manual packaging of wine bottles. Occasionally we could make a new part of the agriturismo together, starting with the lime and milk dye for the room where you will be staying!

The desire to redevelop the territory and the push to take a step towards sustainable and innovative agriculture are giving shape to a farm that increasingly aims at creating networks that benefit the surrounding areas and beyond. The farm was founded at the foot of Monviso with the aim of creating a production chain of hemp and hops, acting in connection with the actors present in the territory, from the main breweries in the Cuneo area to national and international partners. We are 3 young guys who have decided to make the best use of the land and resources left by our family. The company was born on the Buschese hill, about 800m high in a fairly isolated wooded area (15 minutes by car from the town center). It has about 20 hectares of which 12 are wooded, 2 are hops, 2 are hemp, 1 is hazelnuts, 1 is a kiwis and 1 is an experimental greenhouse, we also have an apiary. At the farm headquarters, an agritourism is being set up that will give space to multiple musical, artistic and cultural events. In addition to the agritourism facility there is a an old house which under renovation, a wood-burning oven, a swimming pool and a large terrace; all crowned by a splendid view of the plain. We often work with neighbouring farms to organize summer events. With a spirit of sharing and learning we try to work while having fun and learning every day. Depending on the season and the number of guests, we can offer a room, a tent or a camper place. We will choose together with our guests, based on their interests, the collaboration that best suits them; respecting, however, the priorities that agriculture tells us. We share our experiences not only to teach but also to learn.
Ours is a newly born farm, so there is a lot to do and many of the structures and projects are still in formation. We have bees, hens, two cats, a large vegetable garden, some vineyards (which are not healthy at the moment ...), buildings to be restored naturally and many roe deer and wild boars all around us. There are 12 hectares, 6 of which are forests, 4 are meadow and the rest hazelnut, chestnut wood or are uncultivated. We are a young couple oriented to an alternative lifestyle. Our objective is to create a multifunctional farm, planned following the principles of Permaculture. We have many guests and we are delighted to have people interested and motivated and there is also room for wwoofers' to use their own initiative and projects. We speak Italian, Swiss German and English. We eat together, usually vegetarian food, so there is no problem for us to host vegetarians or vegans.
