Our farm, which has always been organic, is situated 7 km from Urbino and is run by us, a couple. We have cows (10), pigs (60), rabbits and chickens. All the animals are free range. We have chosen breeds that are in danger of extinction (especially the Cinta Senese pigs). We also have facilities for the preparation of our meat on the farm. We are not vegetarian, and only really speak Italian, but happily accommodate all nationalities. Accommodation in a room in the house or a good tent in the summer, meals organic. We do not have an agritourism by choice - the farm is much more important than tourism, no swimming pool.
The 5 of us (me, my wife, & our 3 sons) live and work at 530 m above sea level near historical villages, many interesting sites (such as the world famous Frasassi Caves) and we are just 45 km from the Adriatic Sea. Of our farm's 21 hectares - completely devoted to organic farming since 1988- we cultivate around 10 ha in grains, pulses, forage and vegetables irrigated with water from our lake. We have a flock of 50 sheep and we make our own cheese for family consumption. Our work with WWOOFers is based on collaboration both in the field (sowing, hoeing and harvesting) and in the barn (weaving onions and garlic) as well as in the house (sharing domestic tasks including cheese-making). We have hosted WWOOFers for many years, from all corners of the world and of all ages. We are more than satisfied with the ensuing relationships and many of our new friends continue coming back to visit us. In fact it's not only the material help so much as a shared participation in communal family living, that we appreciate. Spring and summer are the seasons we need help in most. English, German and French spoken.
