We need a helping hand for various jobs to be done on the farm and in the house, depending on seasonal needs and which are mainly carried by ourselves (including home renovation, stone masonry, etc.).

We, Margareth and Simon, have sheep, pigs, chicken and cats, there are various gardens with different vegetables, herbs, exotic plants and flowers. The farm has 40 very steep hectars in total, three of them are meadows, acres and orchards. We have our own potatoes throughout the year, we make wine, Sauerkraut, syrups, jam, speck, sausages... All without chemical fertilizers and pesticides. In our farm restaurant people can come on reservation and eat the food prepared with our products. We rent out the apartment on the top floor of the house to holiday guests. We both have a background in the arts, so we’re organising in different periods throughout the year an art program with a residency and public events on the farm called "Hotel Amazonas“. We’re happy to share knowledge, experiences and interests in a creative and unusual farm environment. We’re looking for independent, hands-on people who like being in nature.

Our farm is located in high val Venosta, near the border with Austria and Switzerland, within the Stelvio National Park. We live on the farm with our children of five and two. We moved here in 2013 year and started our activity and we have completely rebuilt the farm building it in wood and using ecological and natural materials according to the principles of bio-building. Accommodation is in a small hut, built in wood near the main farm. Usually we all eat lunch together while breakfast and dinner are prepared and eaten by guests in the hut. The area where we are is very quiet, located about two kilometers from the nearest town and enjoys a panoramic view of the upper Val Venosta. Our farm is still in the development phase and our philosophy of life is to live in and with nature with the principles of self-sufficiency. Our guests can help us work with animals (laying hens, pigs, sheep), small wooden carpentry jobs (fences, repairs, ...), packing eggs and similar jobs.

We are a couple of 33 and 36 and since 2008 have cultivated (using biodynamic methods) a diverse variety of vegetables, strawberries, cereals and honey. The area cultivated with vegetables is approx. 1,5 ha. We pay particular attention to the cultivation of varieties reproduced from seed, promoting plant growth through a well-planned mixed culture, activating the life of the soil with a good management of the compost and avoiding soil compaction (we work a good part of our land with with our donkeys). Whoever comes here will be helping in vegetable garden, harvesting strawberries, caring for the donkeys, selling at the market and other tasks. We can host people from April to late October, accommodation in caravans, with bathroom and hot shower in the nearby barn, max. 2-3 people.

We are a young family with two small daughters. 3 years ago we rented our farm. We have 2 dairy cows, 5 calves, 4 pigs, and about 20 hens a dog and cat. With the milk we make cheese, butter and yogurt. In the kitchen we try to use our products above all. We grow many different vegetables and herbs on 0.5 hectares of fields with which we make money. We have 4.5 ha meadows where we make hay twice a year. On other 4.5 has we graze our animals and Highlands cattle. We gave since the beginning been organic, and now we are biodynamic. We are in a wonderful place in the mountains at 1140m with a spectacular view. The distance to the next town is 3km. Here the road ends. Here it is never boring, because there are many different jobs are to be done.
For 30 years we have practiced biodynamic agriculture, seeking to perfect the agricultural systems we have and to expand them. It is a constant search for us to understand and take part in nature. The jobs are varied: from routine jobs in the orchard and in the garden, with the hedges, the pond, seeding flowers for the bees and making biodynamic preparations, harvesting flowers etc .. spraying the plants. Maybe to also read a good book and then plan new projects. Our children help at certain times. We stay at our home or on the farm which is a quiet and spartan place. We hope to accommodate people with desire to research the fundamental basis between nature and man. fondamentali tra natura e uomo. In February we clean the trunks of the apple trees and apply a rivitalizing paste if anyone would like to learn about this, even if only for a few days, be in touch.
