Ours is a small farm in the hills between Orvieto and Todi, 12 ha where we have a herd of dairy goats, pigs, sheep, farmyard animals, pets, a young olive grove of 600 trees and a vegetable garden and orchard for family use. We have a dairy where we transform the milk every day and 5 apartments where guests and WWOOFers can stay. We are 4 adults and 2 children, we are Norwegian, therefore we speak Norwegian and Italian but also good English and French. We have lived here for 8 years, it was a lifestyle choice, we still have much to learn and develop. We hope to exchange of ideas, thoughts and knowledge with wwoofers. On the other hand, life here is also full of daily tasks, daily and / or seasonal care of the animals and the land, the maintenance of the houses and fences, the wood, the garden etc. etc. Here, we would like your help in everything we're doing. We always have lunch together but in the evening you'll have a kitchen in your accommodation where you can prepare dinner but of course we provide all the food -usually from the farm. We are in an isolated place and it is very quiet, surrounded only by fields, woods and parks. We often go to Orvieto and so of course are happy to take you to the train.
This hermitage is a very isolated farmhouse, particularily suitable for people who need to temporarily get away from the stress of the city and recharge their batteries in the peace of nature and the countryside doing simple jobs. It is nestled in the green heart of Umbria, near to a nature reserve and 15 km from the nearest village. The house has been carefully renovated using green building methods, is equipped with photovoltaic panels, heated by wood and has it’s own water from the well. The main jobs are in our organic garden and cleaning the access paths. The food is vegetarian, we mainly use our products and those of local producers. We do not have television, there is a landline but not good mobile phone reception, internet is only available in the reception area. There is a small chapel on the property. Meals are shared together in the refectory. The "luxury" that reigns in our hermitage is linked to ecology, healthy technology and spirituality. The WWOOFers are housed in a single room with bathroom . We speak English, French and Spanish.
Family run farm situated 560m above sea level on Mount Peglia. We produce about a ha of vegetable garden, hay, oil, a little wine for home consumption, soft fruit. Jobs include harvesting and storage of onions, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes and beans, making tomato sauce and jam, haymaking, harvesting olives for oil and grapes for wine. But in the countryside there are always many chores to do, especially in a wilderness like this! We are just 9 km from Orvieto (5 km is along a dirt road) but as we have 3 children there is always someone who goes into town. We have no TV but we have internet, a good sense of humour is essential!.
