Alessandria

Summer List
Ours is a collective agricultural project, family-run (we are two couples, about 30 years old), a village abandoned for half a century in stone located in the upper Borbera Valley, valley with extraordinary natural features, wild and severe. It is located on a plateau, sheltered from the north winds and strongly exposed to the sun. We practice slow, silent and subtle agriculture and produce high quality food using heirloom and organic seeds. In addition to the production of vegetables and wheat we have recovered several small abandoned vineyards and we are planting new vineyards. Our wine is a testimony to us, a story to cling to, a beautiful song that combines a good rhythm with a deep and moving text but also a revenge of a small part of the peasant world. At the moment we have the possibility to accommodate max 4 WWOOFers at a time (at least one with a driving license!) from February to November, the accommodation is a small detached house in a mountain stone village about 8 km from the farmhouse; during the summer period for those who want it there is also the possibility of camping in tents in comfortable grounds near the farmhouse. We give guests the opportunity to learn notions of natural agriculture (vegetable garden and vineyard), home-made bread and small craft works. Languages ​​spoken: Genoese and English. In the age of technology and industry, our farmhouse moves backwards, convinced that in some cases "going back" is today a cutting edge practice.

Our small family run farm is located in Vignale Monferrato, in the countryside of the beautiful UNESCO heritage. We are an Italo / Spanish family who decided to return to live in the countryside to allow our four children to live immersed in nature.In 2017 we started a snail farm, in 2018 will start a new initiative of horticultural gardens that we will manage in a natural way respecting the specifications included in organic farming. We have an orchard and breed goats, sheep and poultry for family self-consumption. We transform our products trying to preserve the traditions of our cultures. WWOOFers will be involved in all activities and will be hosted in a separate room with bathroom. Languages spoken: Spanish and English
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.

My husband was born and raised in the countryside; he loves its rhythms and its traditions. I grew up between one city and the other, but I learned to love the quiet life in Monferrato hills; ruled by seasons and Nature’s rhythm. We believe that "returning to nature", to a life in harmony with the wonderful world around us, it’s a priceless treasure and a message that is essential to tell to those around us and to those who will take our place one day. Our farm started in 2014 and produces mostly organic wine. We have about three hectares of vineyard, a family vegetable-garden and two projects in collaboration with other local farms for rediscovering Ancient Cereals varieties and olive groves. We live and work in our country house; I have a small shop where I bake pastries, grissini and prepare jams from our fruit trees... occasionally we organize wine and food tasting in the garden on in the house. Wwoofers will be involved in all activities of country-life. We have a dog, Maira (Italian Spinone – 3 years) and a black cat with white socks, Grissia. Pet lovers are welcome! Hospitality from April to October for one or two people; private or shared room, bathroom shared with the family. We have Internet but no television! Organic meals, rarely with meat. We speak English and Spanish. Our house is situated in a rural village; to reach bars or shops you’ll need to take a bike, a car or be happy to have a walk! Nature around us is beautiful, there are several trails suitable for bicycles or walking. We will be happy to tell you what we know, share our skills and learn something from our guests too!

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.

We, Erica (1983), Matteo (1982) and Leonardo (2008), breed sheep and donkeys on our small family farm in Val Borbera. The farm is independent, surrounded by greenery, 5 min from the village with public transport, post offices and shops. After traveling for a few years we fell in love with our homeland and we found out how to live in harmony with our surroundings and its produce. We love to enrich our lives with exchange of knowledge and sharing of ideas with travelers. Our animals are kept free range, no GM, no powdered milk for our lambs. The milk from our sheep is made into Montébore cheese by a cooperative (Slow Food). We use the donkeys for riding with the kids and in the garden as animal traction. We have a vineyard with local grape varieties. Very close by runs a little river, crystalline water and alternating pools, rapids and waterfalls. Various routes and excursions into the wild Apennines start from here. Wwoofers will be involved in all activities of our farm: lambing (January / February), milking, grazing (March to November), working with animal traction (Oct / May), harvesting and making preserves from the garden, hiking, in the vineyards, educational farms (April / June, workshops on making felt, wool, spinning, which I will be pleased to teach you). Accommodation in your own tent, we are renovating a house that in bad weather can be used. We share meals and common areas. We ask for cooperation for cooking and cleaning. The food, including meat, is for the most part of our own production. No problem with vegetarians. Prefer medium to long stays. We speak Spanish and school English.
We are a family run farm with 7 hectares of vineyard cultivated organically and an underground cellar where make produce organic wine. I'm 27 and I work with my parents, my brother is at university. We have a vegetable garden, fruit trees and a forest from which we get our wood. The house is located in the village of Cella Monte, we are starting a farm here where we offer tastings of food and wine combined with guided tours of the vineyard and events of various kinds. We have two rooms for B & B and a small apartment for overnight tourists. We would love your collaboration in all the activities here, which vary depending on the season: in the vineyard, cellar, vegetable garden and farm and to be able to work together and share the various aspects of our work. We are very open to cultural exchange: to teach what we know and learn new things at the same time! Wwoofers can stay in a room of the house. We always eat together, dinnertime is the best time for everyone to chat, our diet is nearly vegetarian. We welcome one to two people and prefer longer stays, it takes a while to adapt to the rules of the house. Languages ​​are not a problem: we speak English, French and Spanish in addition to Italian. The area is beautiful for walks through woods and vineyards, cycling and visits to various wineries. We do yoga, meditation and reiki and it will be a pleasure to share these practices with interested wwoofers; we are also available to teach how to cook, make bread, yogurt and bean/seed sprouts.

I cultivate and sell vegetables produced with organic regenerative agriculture in southern Piedmont (in Serravalle Scrivia, where the Apennines begin). The farm is very new and I need help (and comparison) to build and improve in cultivation and sales. I used to work in large-scale distribution. I am 48 years old and live with my wife (Sara, 42, teaches mathematics) and our 3 children (14, 12 and 7 years old) in an apartment; the garden (about 7000 square meters) is located a few kilometers from the house, in the Gavi hills; my sister Daniela (46) collaborates with me, and lives right next to us and we use her apartment for WWOOFers (a dedicated room and shared bathroom, kitchen and living room). We would like to host WWOOFers who can stay with us for a couple of weeks or so.  We really like traveling to learn about different customs and habits and we have decided to try also to "travel from home" by hosting other people. Serravalle (about 6000 inhabitants, located in the center of the triangle Milan, Turin and Genoa) you can to reach these cities by public transport and to learn about the landscapes and traditions of our rural culture, at the foot of the Apennines. The period in which we would like to host is from June to October. We speak English and a little French, but it would be fun to try to communicate with different languages ​​too.

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.
