Terni

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!.

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.

This project was born in 2014 by the will of 6 of us from the city who wanted to change our lifestyles. We rolled up our sleeves, gathered the tools, and began to clear manure from an old barn in the woods of Poggio Lavarino (TR), in the unspoiled Valserra, with the intention of rediscovering the pleasure and values ​​of rural life. The difficulties have been countless and there has constant effort! Today we are in 2 (Susanna and Jacopo) to carry on our little reality with of goats, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks but also a small domestic vegetable garden and some olive trees. After the first few years of living long periods in a trailer near the barn, in 2017 we managed to get a house in the village where we can host the wwoofers in a private room. The necessary help varies according to the seasons, but for us it is especially important to share, which until now has always been manifested in a beautiful symbiotic relationship with "our" wwoofers.
This is a family-run organic farm located in the Orvietan hills in an unspoilt rural setting. The main activity is breeding Chamois dairy goats. All the milk is made into raw milk cheeses, soft and semi-soft cheese and yogurt in the dairy. The farming methods are strictly natural and we have full respect for the animals health, the environment and the consumer. The farm, which extends over 18 hectares of arable land, also follows a path of complete supply chain, from cultivation of the land, the production of cheese to selling our produce directly to our customers from our small farm shop. The farm is is powered by alternative and renewable energy with low environmental impact. In addition to the goats we have horses, donkeys, chickens and geese. In the fields we cultivate forage crops and cereals. We speak Italian and English.

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. 

Small farm of about 3 ha surrounded by woods between Orvieto and the lake of Bolsena about 600 m above sea level. The area is particularly rich in biodiversity and is part of an area which has been closed to hunting for forty years. This place is suitable for those who love tranquility, contact with nature and respects her rhythms. The main activities for which help is needed are the following: in the organic vegetable garden with attention to ancient local varieties; we are in the process of creating a synergistic garden. Harvesting fruit and herbs, transplanting trees, pruning etc. Forest maintenance: cleaning and making signs for pathways, collecting firewood and identifying plants at risk of genetic erosion for reproduction by seed, cuttings and transplants. Maintaining the gardens adjacent to the houses (weeding, watering, transplanting, etc.). The farm is actively involved in the protection of animal biodiversity also with the construction of artificial nests, bird feeders and shelters for small wildlife, creating small ponds etc. In this sense it is working on testing a model of low-impact living which is respectful of other life forms. We are happy to host people who do not smoke and are vegetarian. The accommodation provided is in a single room with bathroom (possibly shared by other guests). Medium-long length of stay. Basic English spoken.

Our family run biodynamic 6 ha farm is located on a hill above the Tiber River valley, 600 meters from Giove (TR)- a small town of 2,000 inhabitants. On the ground floor of our house there is a workshop for processing honey, a farm shop, warehouse and art studio, where we often share artistic activities with the guests of the agritourism and also any WWOOFers in their spare time. We can only take one WWOOFer at a time, on the ground floor there is a studio apartment with kitchenette, bathroom and outdoor space (reserved for WWOOFer). The first floor is the family home. The second house is rented to tourists. The family consists of us, husband and wife, helped by our daughter who does not live here. The activities include: caring for the bees, honey, in the vegetable garden, with olive and other trees (for fruit and timber), with various maintenance jobs and in the house, cleaning and maintaining the small pool during the spring-summer. For all these activities your help will be invaluable! Food is predominantly vegetarian , and possibly biological. Free wi -fi. Languages: some English and French.
This is a project that encompasses permaculture, education and care for people with problems. The founders are the pioneers of European comic-therapy and have conceived this space as a place of experimentation of new culture and new sociality. It is located on Monte Peglia at 640 meters, 18 km from Orvieto on the highway 317. The farm consists of 21 hectares of woodland and arable land, 250 olive trees and a vineyard, crops to be put back into production, a large vegetable garden that is now reviving life. During the summer, holistic, permacultural and artistic educational and cultural programs are held here. There is an agricamping with compost toilet, We would host 2 wwoofers in the room with bathroom (in the summer to share with other people). We cook together, mainly vegetarian and organic. Sharing is important to us and activities will be linked to the land and the forest.
On our farm we follow the principles of Rudolph Steiner for Biodynamic farming, we also want to use Permaculture, and we are open to natural experiences of all kinds. Not having farming roots we are learning through continuous trial and error and have had many good results but some setbacks. We have 5 ha. of land with olive trees, vineyards, orchards, woods,greenhouses and we have recently planted a chestnut wood. Our area, as well as being in the centre of the beautiful Umbria and one hour by train from the centre of Rome, is full wild herbs. We do not claim to teach Biodynamics but we can transfer our enthusiasm and the theoretical and practical knowledge we have acquired so far; we can share the basic tasks of biodynamic cultivation such as using green manures and the preparation and use of herbal concoctions. Of course, there is something to be done every day; in the fields, in the workshop, kitchen, etc. .. We therefore need your collaboration to help our farm to grow so that it eventually brings us a modest income as well as the satisfaction it gives us of having good quality results whilst respecting the land, its balance and the fauna. We have Wi Fi but sometimes it is not the best, we also have a swimming pool. Accommodation is in a nearby self contained apartment. We are lovers of healthy Italian food and we are willing, in addition to sharing our table, to share our knowledge of simple and tasty cuisine. The model that we want to achieve is to be farmers, craftsmen, artists for a self-sufficiency that is based also on exchange with our neighbours. We speak in addition to Italian, French and English.
