My 3 hectare farm is situate near the town of Ancona, from the garden there are beautiful views of Ancona, the sea and Mount Conero. I have olive trees, aromatic plants (lavender, rosemary, thyme, calendula), saffron and a vegetable garden. We use only organic methods and weed by hand to avoid the use of chemicals of any kind, and we are experimenting with natural growing methods to save energy. WWOOFers can help with the preparation of the land and cultivating using the most natural methods possible. I have a degree in biology and on the farm I'm applying the principles to recycling household waste to produce compost. I speak French and German and I understand a little English, but do not speak it well, I am studying Chinese.
This is a small farm that produces wine and olive oil, certified organic last year but also biodynamic. There are 6 ha of high quality vines and 2 ha of olives. Help needed from January to June (mainly in the vineyard, pruning, maintaining and tying up the vines), at the end of Sept for the grape harvest (1 week) and in Nov-Dec for the olive harvest (from 1-4 weeks). Accommodation is in a house situated in the vineyard and olive grove. Animals are welcome as we have 3 dogs and three cats. English, French, German and Spanish spoken.
