Cuneo

This small farm is located in the sunny hills of the Alta Langa. I live in the middle of a pine and oak forest, ten minutes walk from the paved road, one hour from the village. In the big mixed forest grow cherries, plums, peaches, hazelnuts, chestnuts (which get less every year .. !!), blackberries, figs, acorns, rose hips and many herbs that I collect and transform. The organic garden requires daily attention as well as do the animals: a goat, six sheep and a dog. Simple vegetarian dish cooked using the seasonal crops. Jobs can be on the land, at home, or with building with natural materials with respect for the environment. I have little commitments in the surrounding villages and sometimes I have to go to Switzerland, so when I am away you need to be be self-sufficient. Guests help with farm work and in the house and also with building jobs. Accommodation is in a room in my small house, in a tent or in a house near the street with outside bathroom. I thank you for not smoking. I speak Italian, English, French, German (my mother tongue). Exchange is a beautiful thing. See you soon!
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.
I am Daniel, I'm 30 years old and, with the help of my family, I manage the farm and agritourism in my great-grandparents restored house in the high Maira Valley, at the foot of Mount Chersogno. On our organic farm we grow vegetables, medicinal plants and have about 200 beehives from which we produce honey that has earned awards from Slow Food; we also work on the maintenance of the forest, cleaning trails and recovering uncultivated areas. We have seven sheep, a goat, chickens, rabbits, two cats and a dog. In the agritourism, consisting of 5 rooms, we receive guests all year round who love the mountains, hiking, mountaineering or being in contact with the fascinating nature of the Maira Valley. We are surrounded by a network of well-marked trails and we're a stopping place on the Occitani trails, a route of nearly 180 kms that runs through all the municipalities of the valley. We would like your collaboration during the period from May to October and can accommodate one or two people who are motivated and curious to learn and exchange experiences. We are fond of nature photography and Occitan music we play and often sing! The nearest town is 35 km, the train station is 60 km away and the bus around 15 minutes' drive. Spoken languages: Occitan, good French, and a little English, Spanish, German.

In the heart of the Valle Grana, one of the 14 alpine enclaves which uses the Occitan language, we aim to practice agriculture and use old peasant farming traditions. The main activities are the breeding of Piedmontese cattle, the cultivation of vegetables, hay, work in the forests and the processing of the wood needed for winter heating. The family run farm, which consists of the stone house, barn and tool shed, have been renovated keeping the original features and is now our home. Surrounded by meadows, that produce fodder and vegetables, the barn and the hut house a couple of donkeys. The animals, from spring to late autumn graze outdoors. A minor part of the farm is located in the lower valley; other vegetables are grown here surrounded by a small orchard, chickens, rabbits and four goats. Most of the products grown are for our personal use or are made into preserves which we use in out 25 place restaurant. The goal is to breaking down as much as possible a chain that in the last half century has changed structurally farm life, with the conviction that it is from the earth that changes happen. A separate room in the house is available for guests who can help in the activities related to the different seasons and with baking. French is our second language, with English we try to get by.

Situated at the entrance of the Val Maira in a hamlet at an altitude of 1000m, with 32.000 m2 vegetables, chestnut trees, woodland, fields and raspberries. This farm has been occupied since 2006 by us, and our two children (16 &18). F. is a music teacher, I. works in the environmental field. We moved from the city to find a place where we could live with more respect for the cycles of the seasons and life. A great deal of work has already been done but there is plenty more to do! We can host WWOOFers from June to October. Help needed in the vegetable garden; preparing, seeding, maintaining and harvesting; in the woods; maintaining, clearing, cutting, to bring the area to life after being abandoned for many years; in the hamlet and surroundings; clearing old pathways, dry stone walling. Accommodation in the house for one person. Whilst here there will be the chance to go on excursions in the beautiful surrounding countryside. We organize cultural activities together with our friends and activities for children. We have a Labrador dog called Nutella and 4 cats. We produce for our own use and to exchange with friend, jams, vegetables, chestnut conserves and pies. English (school level) spoken.
Our winery is located on a San Luigi hill, with a view of the rolling Dogliani hills and the Langhe. There are 24 hectares of land of which 7 are vineyards. The owners, respectively Ursula: agronomist, Marcello: engineer in oenology and since 2016 Filippo graduated agronomist and viticulture student in France. In the last twenty years they have realized their dreams in this farm and produce wine with direct sales, tend orchards, make preserves for the winter and much more! All this would not be possible without all the helpers giving them a hand, especially during the harvest. The farm has become for many people a place where they can live with nature and other people of all ages from different social backgrounds. Many of them on returning home appreciate their glass of wine much more after observing the genuineness of the vineyards and the sweat and hard work required to achieve this.

This farms main activity is sheep farming with Langhe sheep (an endangered breed), which produce milk for cheese and meat. In addition we raise Piedmontese cattle, pigs and other farm animals such as rabbits and poultry.
We grow strawberries and soft fruit, chestnuts, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines, beans, green beans, potatoes. We have an agritourism with six bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a restaurant for 60 people, we have free wifi internet. We speak good French and some English. Accommodation in a room with a bathroom with use of the kitchen when wanted or you can eat all meals with us.  You can have the opportunity to learn from us how we manage our livestock, and process the products we grow into jam or preserves in the kitchen for the preparation of traditional Piedmontese dishes. It would be interesting to have an exchange of ideas between people who have the same interests from other parts of the world.

This farm is situated in Alta Langa on a hill with a view of the Piemonte Alps. We are Christian (25) and Julien (32) and run the farm since 2018, when the former farmers handed it over to us with all their knowledge. We raise around 60 sheep of the local Langa breed, which graze pastures around the farm from spring to autumn. We milk the sheep by hand and make high quality raw milk cheeses in our dairy, for which we are represented by Slow Food. We have a fruit orchard and vegetable garden for our own use, a vineyard that provides grapes for our self-made wine and bees for honey, There is also a small agritourism attached to the farm with 6 beds and a restaurant for 16 people, where we serve our own produce. We also sell at markets. Accommodation is in an adjacent house with own room and shared bathroom, minimum stay 3 weeks. Help needed with all aspects of daily work. In winter we dedicate ourselves to maintenance work with fences and animal sheds, production of baskets, work in the woods, pruning and making salami. We cook mainly using our own produce. Languages spoken: English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese
