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 near Monteveglio next to the Parco Storico dell'Abbazia di Monteveglio and covers approximately 6 hectares with vineyards, olive grove and woodland. In the vineyard we grow the main local grape varieties: Oignoletto, Barbera and Negrettino. The farm's cantina turns these grapes into wine to be sold directly to the consumer: some of the oil and wine is used in the agritourism, open all year (except between 15/12 and 31/10), in which we cook Bolognese meals with carefully chosen raw materials. In the summer WWOOFers can also eat on the terrace, from which you can see the stunning view between the Valle del Marzatore to the Valle dell'Invenata. The farm also has a swimming pool, open from April to September. There are also various food and wine-tasting events, the fruit on the farm is turned into produce such as jams and preserves. WWOOFers take part in all the farm activities. We speak English.
