We are a 50 year old couple who moved from Milan and our careers to be in our personal heaven on earth in the hills of Molise. Since the mid-90s we have played with the idea to move to one of the remotest valleys of Central Asia where we travelled on foot during our holidays, or to Afghanistan near a school or one of the hospitals that we financed with our non-profit organization. In the end we did not do any of that, but we bought a farm now reduced to ruins in Molise. Restructuring it we have installed a stove refractory, that with a few kgs of wood heats the whole house, photovoltaic panels for electricity and a solar thermal system for hot water. Now we live with two horses, five dogs, cats and chickens. Adjacent to the farmhouse there is a large vegetable garden of more than half a hectare and some fruit trees. The garden is fertilized with manure from the horses and with our compost. There are also 70 olive trees. We produce our oil, our vegetables, our preserves and sour dough bread. We have chickens, but only for the eggs, we do not eat meat. We can provide a room with bathroom. We gladly welcome people during the spring / summer / autumn to help us out in the garden and with the animals. At home we speak Italian, German, English and French. The farm is about 4 km from the village Sant'Elia a Pianisi. Actually we are building a site for our honey bees. We will produce honey with the "flow hive" system.
500 ha biodynamic farm divided into vineyards, an olive grove, wheat (especially hard wheat) and forage crops for the milk cows and goats reared on the farm. In particular, this Agricultural Society was created with the aim to: -Create a project with short supply chain and produce products of high nutritional quality -Experiment, creating a model for biodynamic agriculture in southern Italy, -Promote the training of young biodynamic farmers -Accommodate people interested in rural tourism. We ask WWOOFers to stay at least a month and to have goodwill, availability and adaptability, and not come with preconceived ideas but to be open to new experiences. We offer you the opportunity to make a real work experience and learn about life on a large and complex farm and we believe this is mainly what the traveller should expect from us, sharing in all the aspects, positive and negative, of life on a young biodynamic farm. Also to have the ability to compete with its daily challenges as well as the experience of living and sharing with all the people who live and work here. The daily routine is agreed at the beginning of the stay and then modulated depending on the farms needs and preferences of the WWOOFer. We provide a room to sleep, meals are shared with all the farms employees. Although we are not completely vegetarian, almost all of the meals are vegetarian and only rarely do we eat meat and fish, of course, those who wish may buy and cook their own when they want to. You will find PCs with internet connection and a working wi-fi network. Although the farm is located about ten miles from the nearest town, just opposite the main building there is a bus stop that connects to the main urban centres in the area. Some of us speak English, but as the majority of the people here do not it would be better to have people who speak some Italian.
