We are a couple in our sixties who have moved to the country after having been a veterinary surgeon and a herbalist. We have always kept bees and we have also written extensively on the subject in the past. Now semi-retired, we have recuperated the farm and the mill, which had been abandoned for 50 years and which is situated in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines on the border between the two regions, one km from the exit on the A1 Roncobilaccio. We carry out beekeeping, grow medicinal plants, preserve, renovate the house, we have a hen house, the river, the road needs to be restored, we can teach you to do the stone walling, we must build a hut for our donkey, we sometimes need to empty the mud from the vaulted rooms under the mill. Everything is done in moderation. No one runs behind and by the way we like to talk more about bioethics, Leopardi of European policy by the fireplace or under a tree to fresco.Abbiamo many books, all beds, we love music and art. We eat "Mediterranean" and we try to eat less meat. Our food culture is Tuscan-Emilian-Marche with foreign incursions. We are very close to Florence and speak French, a bit 'of Spanish and little English: we'd like to learn it better. We are installing the satellite dish to receive Internet
This farm is situated at 670 m in a popular tourist area. We are 1 hour from Bologna. The farm is accessible by train, the bus stop is only a few metres away and we also collect from Bologna station. We cultivate 8 hectares, partly fruit orchard with soft fruit and partly vegetable garden. The farm is a permaculture project that was started 10 years ago. The environmental and agricultural jobs have taken a great deal of work but they are now growing. There is a workshop where we transform fruit and vegetables. Accommodation in two rooms - only one of which is heated - and shared bathroom, but there are two compost toilets outside. Meals together using mainly our own produce and can be vegetarian. Throughout the year there are meetings and conferences etc. Minimum stays 1 month, best between March and October. Help needed with harvesting fruit, mulching and maintenance of the grounds as well as in the kitchen where we hope to exchange recipes. We ask for commitment during days of work and total freedom in your days off. You can learn about pruning and tree cultivation and hope for a reciprocal cultural exchange. A little English and French spoken. We hope to have internet from April.
