Alessandria

I'm Anna, this place was born from a life choice. I stopped living in Milan in technology closed in a room to create video advertising. I studied permaculture and regenerative agriculture. I looked for a piece of land that seemed to me suitable and cheap. And I started my transition in 2014. I was 54 years old. Three wonderful children. And a great desire to live a truer life. As a girl I had participated in the creation of an ecovillage in Argentina run by a research theater group. I knew I could live in an isolated place, frugally. I started to grow vegetables and now my garden is about 2000 square meters and every year that passes is always richer in life and produces vegetables much appreciated by supporters who buy them, mainly in Milan. I am looking for people who want to share this experience, made up of work, human relationship, resilience, culture and art. If you choose to come, I'd like you to stop a few weeks, after a first week of trial. We mainly work the garden where only manual tools are used. We also prepare macerations and we are starting to produce solutions of local micro-organisms. I'm not a vegetarian but I almost never eat meat. Nutrition is naturally based on vegetables from the vegetable garden! We cook in turn and willingly. I'm ten minutes by bike from the town center and the train station. But here there is a lot of peace, we are close to a forest and you can see beautiful stars. In the weekend, friends from the surrounding area or from the cities often come to visit me. I willingly welcome people from different cultures and languages, I can speak a little bit of English and Spanish.
This small family run farm is situated in the Colli Tortonesi hills in Piedmont near Avolasca, a small rural village in the countryside, halfway between Genova and Milan, surrounded by woodlands and wild countryside. We mainly have a vineyard and produce wine but also have a vegetable garden and a restaurant at the weekends. We are a Belgium and Italian couple with a child (born 2002) and are very open to having people of different nationalities here. Accommodation in small apartment with kitchen but usually we eat meals together. No smoking in the house and you need to get to know the animals before you can look after them! We have a bicycle you can use and a bus stop nearby, but there are no buses on Sundays. We ask you to be adaptable as we all have many different activities. Stays of up to 1 month, English, French and Dutch spoken.
Ciao! For more than twenty years, I have chosen this path of experimentation and self-sufficiency with respect for the environment and for animals. I have a donkey, chickens, cats and a funny little dog Lino. I live in a house in the Piemonte Apennines at an altitude of 500 ms in a panoramic position surrounded by woodland and bordering Lombardia, Emilia and Liguria. The place is peaceful and quiet and offers a direct and constant contact with nature, it is located about 1 km from the town (with a daily bus service, but not on holidays). This is not a farm but a family smallholding. The jobs we do all year round and for which we need help are: in the organic kitchen garden, greenhouse and orchard, all for our own consumption pruning hedges, maintaining fences, the house and garden, care for the animals and cleaning their shelters. I host WWOOFers in 2 independent rooms with shared bathroom, internet access. All meals are shared, I am not vegetarian but am curious to try new types of food/recipes, I eat almost exclusively organic products. I like to have WWOOFers as I would like to share this beautiful place, it is important for me that people who decide to come are seriously interested and motivated, responsible and have respect for the environment and with relationships for the common good. For one year I have welcomed two African teenagers waiting for asylum recognition, together we are carrying out a small project of production of organic eggs; I will therefore not have much availability for other meetings and exchanges but I leave my farm on the list for those wwoofers who need a place to stop in these parts.

A large old farm situated on the edge of the village, on the plain and near to the train station. The family run farm was very run down until 2000 when I moved in and is now almost entirely usable. We carry out various activities: we have a agritourism and in the spring have visits from classes of schoolchildren. We produce organic grains and have a machine for cleaning the grain and a stone mill for grinding. Apart from growing organic grains we also have a small vegetable garden with fruit trees and some poultry. We can host from March to October, accommodation is in a bedroom with bathroom. We ask for a minimum stay of one week. The jobs are those typical of life in the countryside- in the vegetable garden, small maintenance jobs and making things in wood, helping with fairs and markets. We speak English well. Normally it is Marcella who is on the farm, but with good weather there are other family members who help.
We are a group of 30 people living on 100 ha of land which we care for in a natural and organic way: we are trying for sustainable negative growth (decrescita) in a realistic and non fanatical way. We raise pigs, beef cattle, farmyard animals, a small vegetable garden and an orchard for home consumption, grain, hay, especially alfalfa and 20 ha of vineyard. The idea is to do jobs by hand and to use as few machines a possible. The tasks are mainly in the vineyard, the cellar, the orchard, vegetable garden, cleaning in the fields (from March to October). During the winter (from October to March) you can also work in the slaughterhouse, there is maintenance of buildings and wood cutting in the forest, the small dairy or in the restaurant. Accommodation by prior agreement in the campsite. The meals are organic using our own produce. We ask you to be collaborative and positive and to adapt to the jobs you are asked to do. You also need to entertain yourselves in the evenings as the members of the cooperative go home to their families at that time. We are reachable by train at Tortona and then bus or we will come and collect you. English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish spoken.
I live in the southern Piedmont, on the border with Liguria: in the Monferrato hills. The nearest town is Acqui Terme, an ancient Roman spa town. I started my farm three years ago, I do the farm work alone, my partner helps me with bureaucratic matters, our family consists of the two of us, two female dogs (40 and 19 kg) a mare and various donkeys. The house is in an area surrounded by forests where two horse trekking trails pass. I have made a vegetable garden on the land. I use integrated pest management methods, the farm is organic without certification. I grow legumes, fruit and saffron. I dry the legumes and make jams and sauces from the soft fruit. The house originally had a wood-burning oven and I have built a new one. I have baked bread for two years and using my grandmother's recipes, the loaves keep for a week. For 4 years I have reared a herd of donkeys which I am training for riding. I need help with the donkeys, in the vegetable garden where the jobs are linked to the seasons. Accommodation is in a room of the house with a bathroom and shower. I hope to to re-evaluate an area which has been abandoned by many of its inhabitants and returned to its wild state: nature is taking over the civilization again, the woods are wild. Stay at least 30 days, we can accommodate two people, we speak Italian.
We are an Irish-Italian family with 2 children (born in 2009 and 2015) and we moved to the hills of Monferrato in 2013. Our farm is composed of 8 hectares of land: 3.2 hectares of vineyard plus 0.3 hectare that we will be planting during 2019, 0.2 ha vegetables and the rest is grassland and woodland. Viticulture is our main activity which we carry out using organic and biodynamic methods. We have 2 varieties of grapes: Nebbiolo (the prestigious Piedmont variety used to make Barolo and Barbaresco) and Slarina (ancient variety of indigenous red grape that became extinct 100 years ago and now has been rediscovered because of its resistance to drought and parasites and for it's aromatic qualities when vinified). The main tasks during 2018 involve maintaining the current vineyard (including using the traditional skill of tying up the vines with willow) and planting the new vineyard. The grape harvest will take place in September / October. There will also be tasks in the synergic vegetable garden, forest or in the house. We carry out the work together. We are open to sharing our knowledge on biodynamic viticulture and the wine making process and we are also very interested in learning. We eat together using either our own organic produce or that obtained locally. We make our own sourdough bread. The accommodation consists of a double room with your own bathroom and we can host up to two adults and one child at a time. There is no minimum staying period, the maximum stay is 3 weeks. We speak English and Italian as well as some French and Spanish. Find us on Instagram: cascinavalliberata
