Asti

We bought this house in the country with some land about a year ago and would like to start a synergistic garden; we have hazelnut trees; we are making a chicken coop and have done the essential renovations. Our idea is to be as self-sufficient as possible. We like to have you have your help and company for the chores inside and outside the house, there seems a good compromise and an opportunity for growth. We are a couple with two children, two dogs and a cat. We have two cars. we are in the countryside 1 hour from Turin, 20 min from Asti ..and there is good public transport and a railway station nearby. We have wifi and accommodation is in a downstairs room with bathroom. A presto!
We are young people who have traveled the world and have finally achieved our dream of starting a farm located on top of a small hill in the heart of Monferrato. We mainly deal with the management of a vineyard of about 7 hectares and using natural methods produce Barbera, Moscato, Cortese and Chardonnay wines. We also have a little hazelnut grove, fruit orchard, vegetable garden, hens and geese (also a pet pig named Carlotta). Our prerogative is to have a holistic approach to managing the farm, where every job is aimed at reducing waste and using the available resources. We are constantly researching and experimenting with eco-sustainable techniques, thus having a minimal impact on the environment. Daily activities take place in total collaboration both in the vineyard and inside the house. Surely there is a lot of work but fun is not lacking, there are frequent barbecues and get togethers at weekends. We are looking for people who want to get in touch with and live this experience with us. You will have your own room. Four-legged friends are welcome and can keep Ciuchino, Olimpya, and Tess (the dogs on the farm) company.
We moved from Genoa 10 years ago to pursue our dream of farming. Now we live in Monferrato with two children aged 6 and 2, a dog and two cats. We have a farm with 6 hectares of vineyards and as many of wood and pasture, a vegetable garden and a wine cellar. Recently we have taken over an ultiveto from which we get our oil. We have a farmhouse with rooms and a restaurant.On the farm work my husband and I manage the agricultural part and the rooms, my in-laws in the kitchen and two employees. The wwoofers will be able to help us especially in agriculture, in different tasks depending on the period. We offer a room with bathroom inside our house and all meals will be shared. We like to spend some of our free time walking in the countryside or hiking in the area and we would be happy to have visitors with us. We are open to hosting in the period from May to November. We network with another winery in the area so we often work together. The surroundings are naturalistically very beautiful and there are several farms and towns to visit. We speak English.
Our cooperative was founded in 1980 in Pino d'Asti, on the initiative of the members of the Fraternità Emmaus and some farming friends after having had several years of experience of living in the country and from the conviction that working the land is only possible if done with sharing and cooperation. The cooperative started in 1983 in Albugnano, in Cascina Penseglio, in an old house, surrounded by crops (vineyards, pastures, fields and woods). We are dedicated to cattle breeding and farming: vegetables, vines, cereals, pasture and woods, the farm produces wine and preserves. Since 1987 we have dedicated ourselves also to agritourism to allow many people to enjoy the scenic beauty and tranquility of the farm and to establish a direct relationship between producers and consumers, between the land and food. The wwoofers can stay in the rooms of the farm with shared bathroom, we all eat together, the activities vary according to the season and include activities in the garden, in the vineyard, in the woods, in the barn and the farmhouse. The farm can be reached either by car or once a day there is a bus that comes from Turin or with prior agreement we can pick you up at the stations of Chivasso or Asti. Languages ​​spoken: French and English.
Summer List

Small family-run vegetarian agritourism where we concentrate mainly on beekeeping and the production of honey and propolis. We also bake bread once a week, work with wood, restore furniture, make ceramics, make candles from beeswax and spin wool when we have time. We have a vegetable garden and a fruit orchard. We also do a lot of activities with children from March to May. WWOOFers are invited to collaborate and share our lifestyle but must be able to adapt and willing to help out also with the more tedious but very necessary jobs on the farm (i.e. not only seeding and harvesting produce). We have a donkey, 3 goats, 2 sheep, chickens, ducks and rabbits. English, French and Spanish (a little) spoken. 

Summer List

We are a small but dynamic farm and grow vegetables using the principles of permaculture. We grow about 2 ha of vegetables and we aim to replant an orchard and 400 square meters of soft fruit. About 100 chickens and a dozen geese keep us company, we sell in markets and run courses promoting sustainability. We can accommodate 2 people in a comfortable room with shared bathroom. We speak English, French and a little Spanish, we are omnivorous but love vegetarian cooking. Our farm is a few km from Malpensa airport and 1 km from the lake of Varese.

We grow nuts and vegetables using organic methods. We pay great attention to saving water and energy through the use of a solar greenhouse and rainwater collection, the use of advanced irrigation systems that allow a lower consumption of water and greater effectiveness in combating the growth of weeds in our deep bed system. Our goal is to depend less and less on non-renewable sources of energy by limiting the use of mechanical means and replacing them with animal labour. Our donkeys, goats and horses are helping us understand how to work in harmony with them, feeding them with the vegetation that most farms destroy with herbicides. We expect great dedication from WWOOFers to the relationship with the animals and in our vegetable garden and in return we offer free time to enjoy the pool or the ‘cinema’ as well as interesting lessons on baking bread, canning and making fruit sorbets. Every Sunday we make pizza in the wood oven which we share with many friends and fellow farmers. We speak English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and a bit of Russian, but we would be prepared to learn more to make the cultural exchange that drives us to host WWOOFers even more fruitful!

We have this dynamic farm which is situated in San Marzano Oliveto. The family is composed of us and our 2 sons (1985-1988). We produce wine, are a teaching farm with donkey, there is a Bar on the farm and L. makes beer. People who come here live with the family, we can not accept vegetarians and vegans. Please bring a sleeping bag and we accept pets, the accommodation is in an independent farmhouse 200 ms from the farm. The work can vary depending on the season, and may include jobs in the vineyard, wine cellar, maintaining the donkeys fences and with activities with the donkeys. We ask you when you come here to fit in with our family and lifestyle and to help with the general jobs on the farm. We are planning to start a vegetable garden and so this will also be one of the jobs with which we need help. We speak English, French & Spanish.

Small family run farm in the Lange run by P., S, A. (2001), N. (2003) and grandmother F.(1930). We grow maize, barley, hay, Lucerne (in rotation), hazelnuts, have a vineyard, fruit trees (apples, pears, peaches, apricots and plums) and soft fruit. We also have bees (with a workshop to extract and bottle the honey), farmyard animals, chickens, geese, ducks, and guinea fowl. Dogs, cats and small goats. We have 3 rooms in the B & B and 30 seat restaurant. Our house is surrounded by a small lawn and a flower garden. The jobs are very varied and not repetitive, the most interesting and important for us being with the bees and in the vineyard. Sometimes we participate at markets to sell our produce. We are not vegetarian but respect the reasons that people are. We do not speak many languages but have travelled a lot and learnt that with patience and the use of gestures we can make ourselves understood. We speak a little French, English and Spanish. We are happy to teach you what we know as when you teach you also learn.
