Summer List
We are a very young farm, started thanks to Paola and Matteo, a couple with children, and managed with the invaluable help of Massi, Dario, Jessica and many other beautiful people interested in our project ... We are planning and implementing, step by step, an example of integrated and sustainable agroecosystem .... By helping us you can become part of this small but great project in progress ... We try to produce high quality food, which nourishes us thanks to its richness and completeness of substances and vitality. We also aim to set up a sustainable system from an economic, human and social point of view. At the moment we produce: vegetables, a mixed orchard with ancient varieties (Pears, apples, peaches, apricots, plums and table grapes), soft fruit (currants, raspberries and blackberries), olive trees for the production of extra virgin olive oil. There is so much to learn, thanks to the wide and deep experience of Matteo, who for years with TERRA ORGANICA forms and advises agricultural farms that decide to go "beyond the biological" and try to be "regenerative" .. And thanks to the passion of Paola, who believes in dreams and in the possibility of making them real, to Dario, Massi and Jessy, you can enjoy a working environment that is not only welcoming and familiar but also fun, young and dynamic. We need enthusiasm, willingness to compare, work and learn ... (after a few days try out we request stays of at least 20 days). We offer food, accommodation in a magnificent place overlooking the lake, a few steps from the shore, from the train station and surrounded by fabulous mountains ... In a undiscovered territory ...

This farm is located at 1000 meters above sea level, and was started in 1997, thanks to the property which was inherited by Amedeo and to the initiative of Abramo. The farm includes 12 hectares of land and 3 active farms. In the main, we run the agritourism and process the soft fruit grown on the farm (1 hectare of red currants, raspberries, black currants, blackberries, strawberries). We also breed animals for both the agritourism (poultry and beef) and for clearing the land (donkeys). In the apartment in the woods we accommodate overnight, whilst in the farm to the north is located the warehouse and animal sheds. There is also the maintenance of the territory - mowing hay for winter for livestock, cleaning in the forest, cutting wood for the winter, general maintenance (cleaning, agricultural machinery maintenance, etc.).
A small farm located in the pre-mountain area above the town of Salò. I, Silvia, and my husband Nicola, take care of olive trees, bees and saffron. On the farm there is a dog, a cat and a chicken: I would like to be able to increase the number of hens and maybe add some other animals. The bees are located in the main farm with the exception of the nomadic period where they are taken to higher mountain areas. The olive trees are distributed in different fields between Salò and Valtenesi. The activities on the farm are varied and concern the care of the land, the olive trees, the vegetable garden and the apiary. We have only recently acquired the farm and therefore we are often engaged in maintenance or consolidation of the structures (chicken coop, porch, fence, woodshed ...) The farm is located in an isolated area where many paths lead to the nearby mountains and the lake. You can walk, ride a bike: there are many sports available on the lake and in the surrounding area. From Salò there are buses to Brescia and Desenzano, where trains run frequently to major cities such as Verona, Venice and Milan. Nicola and I are musicians and often there is the opportunity to participate in our concerts. We have a room with bathroom in the farmhouse, ideal for a couple or two friends. We usually have breakfast, lunch and dinner together!
Summer List
I tried to train myself trying to try different unconventional cultivation methods. My approach is basically to start from the traditional agricultural practices of these areas, readjusting them experimenting and following a few fundamental technical principles (however, always in review and review): minimal processing and constant coverage of the soil; minimal or no irrigation; I do almost everything by hand, for a few things I use a rotary cultivator; I do not use industrial chemicals. I grow vegetables and in particular beans, pumpkins and potatoes, but also some cereals. I'm a hobbyist beekeeper. I started in 2017 to take the first steps in the world of agriculture, now I cultivate almost half a hectare and the farm is in constant evolution: (re) start, discover, experiment, make mistakes, learn, sweat. I am 27 years old, I really enjoy being in company with others, sharing my daily life with my guests. I live in the mountains of the Camonica Valley which is full of trails, routes and climbing walls. My house is just outside the town centre in a house with a garden, with a beautiful view. The town has about 4500 inhabitants, so there is every service and several opportunities to pass the time. My 4 fields are scattered here and there, between 1 and 10 km from home, between 700 and 1100 m s.l.m. Cultivating the land and living according to the rhythms of my natural context is something that gives me joy and to which I attach great value. Doing agriculture means responding to a primary need: eating healthy food, therefore good. Agriculture means weaving relationships and at the same time directly co-responsible for the natural system in which we live, so I take what I do with very serious joy.

I am a man of 28 years and I live in an old farmhouse with my three children. On my farm, I focus mainly on the production of milk and cheese from my five cows. The form that I gave to my company is traditional, so in addition to the production of dairy I dedicate myself to the breeding of calves born on the farm, pigs, horticulture and beekeeping. Naturally I make myself the necessary hay for winter and wood to cook and heat with. This year (2018) will be the year in which I will renovate most of the buildings: those who come to visit me this summer will have the chance to experiment with the techniques of wrought iron and stone working. Every day will always be different! Host from April to October minimum for two weeks, all meals eaten together accommodation in a shared dormitory or single room of your choice.

This is a farm that raises cows, goats and sheep in a semi-wild state, and which offers you the the possibility to experience life in a ‘Malga’. In all we have 100 cows and 30 sheep and goats. We are located in the heart of the Alps where there is the possibility to take beautiful walks to enjoy the local flora and fauna. It is family runt: mother, father and 26 year old daughter. We are omnivorous. The experience is based on the work of the malga, learning to approach the animals, milk by hand, see the cheese making and manage the animals that graze in an area of 150 ha. Our animals all have a name and their own identity. In your free time you can pick wild herbs, go in search of wild animals, take trips to the alpine lakes, go and see the exhibits of the First World War, all of this close to the Malga.

From just over two years we have rented the house and land (about 2 acres of lawn + wood). We are three people, two of us are concerned full-time kitchen gardens and animals while the third has kept his job for now allowing steady salary. Our choice was dictated primarily by the desire not to feel complicit in a system of life and market that we do not share. We are at 450 meters high on Lake Iseo, the terrain is mountainous, surrounded by chestnut trees. We keep poultry, rabbits and 3 goats that allow us to produce cheeses during the summer, mostly fresh. We have three gardens (biodynamic cultivation) for our consumption. We also find the idea of sharing this beautiful place with others very interesting also with different ideas of life. Accommodation in room or tent. We speak English, French and a bit of German.

We, along with our children, (2009 & 14) live on our small family farm situated at an altitude of 1250 metres in Valle Camonica, at about 2,5 km from Galleno, facing the beautiful Campovecchio and Brandet valleys. The main agricultural jobs are in the Spring: we have an organic vegetable garden for ourselves and to sell locally, a field of herbs which we dry and transform ourselves, soft fruit which we make into juices and jams, and bees. We can accommodate WWOOFers in single or communal rooms depending on availability, or in tents, our meals are all vegetarian and organic and we are willing to adapt to different needs. We cook and eat together, the house is not connected to the grid and so we heat with wood and have photovoltaic solar panels. Anyone who stays with us will be involved in helping in the garden, picking and drying medicinal herbs, cutting grass and firewood, with the soft fruit, other jobs clearing in the fields and harvesting wild fruit and herbs. This summer we would like to build a toolshed, greenhouse and a solar shower and compost toilet We would also like help with our website. Stays of a week or more depending on the season and individual needs. We speak: English, French (a little), Spanish, Portuguese and Tajiko.

After several different work experiences I came closer to meditation and then permaculture. Becoming a mother led me to the desire for a different way of life and in 2013 I left my job in a multinational to start growing strawberries and soft fruit near Lake Garda. I sell fresh fruit and jams. I have about about one hectare of productive land. Following the maturation of the fruit most of the work is concentrated between June and September. This activity also gave me the opportunity to start collaborating by offering internships to ‘fragile’ student. Being with these people has made me realize how important my work is for them, in a risk-free environment, in contact with nature, and how gratifying it can be for me to follow these projects, teaching, harvesting the fruit, and being in the here and now. The objective I have is to promote an experience of real working life. By working together on my little farm I can actually provide more tools through true feelings, meditation, listening. The activities we ask you to share with the guests are harvesting the fruit and caring for the plants, the work is all done manually. To learn more and to get the best from your stay I ask for stays of at least 2 weeks. The farm is 5 km from the lake and you can bicycle or go by bus for a swim. You can also make beautiful excursions in the nearby mountains exploring ancient villages. So a true sport /agronomist experience!!! I look forward to meeting you.

We are a young couple who live and work on a farm in the green Valsabbia. Mainly we breed chamois goats and produce cheese; we also have a few cows, pigs, rabbits and chickens, a cat and a playful sheepdog. There is a vegetable garden and several fruit trees. In the summer we make the hay to feed our animals, but throughout the year there is never a lack of things to do! We are in Casto, near the Parco delle Fucine and various mountain shelters and walks. We gladly welcome those who want to gain experience with animals, working the garden, make hay and to understand what it means to have a farm and share with us our simple and natural way of life. We recommend a minimum of 2 weeks. We are not vegetarians but consume little meat (mostly ours), we respect all different food choices and for every need there is a supermarket 2 minutes' walk away. We are 5 minutes drive from the town centre, one hour from Brescia. We speak Spanish and are happy to try with English.
