Torino

My husband and I breed alpaca in the Valle Sacra, alto Canavese, we are at 1000 mt surrounded by chestnut and hazel woods. We have an alpaca farm, our main activity is animal welfare, including care of the pasture, maintenance of stalls and fences, weed eradication, storing manure and daily care. The spring is the time to shear the alpaca. The fibre, which is very fine and of high quality, is then worked by hand using ancient instruments and with full respect for ecology, up to the packaging of the soft balls of wool with the wheel spool. During the summer there are the births and new born to care for. Our business absorbs us completely, and there is not much time for social life. We have a couple of vegetable gardens that allow us to consume vegetables grown using the principles of permaculture. The only fertilizer used is alpaca which has superb qualities. In the autumn we take care of our forests and prepare the wood we will need next year to warm up. In addition to alpaca we have three dogs and two cats. In this area telephone communication is difficult and discontinuous, we do not have wifi and we try to moderate contact with electromagnetic waves. We can accommodate people who would like to share with us the days in an apartment where there is a large bedroom with a good view, with bathroom annex, below a kitchen. What we want to propose is meeting new people with the mutual exchange of knowledge and reality and also to teach the ancient art of spinning wool.
We are Laura, Paolo and our four children. We live in Bibiana in a farmhouse at the foot of the mountains overlooking the Pinerolo plain. We have about fifty beehives, a cherry orchard in production, a growing apple orchard, scattered walnut and chestnut trees, some crops in the hills, chicken run, family vegetable garden, geese and a pony that helps with the work. Laura is forester and teacher, Paolo is an agronomist and integrates business with lessons, professional jobs and projects in the field of environmental education. Looking for a more sustainable agriculture and way of life we ​​have gradually abandoned the use of synthetic products in plant care and this year, after the conversion period, we are certified organic. The farm is small and, since it was born as a beekeeping farm, it does not have much mechanization. So many jobs are manual or with small mechanical means. Trying to reconcile agronomic training with the fascinating ideas of M. Fukuoka, we are interested in permaculture experimenting with it in the vegetable garden and on the arable land. We have transformed a part of our farm into camping for tents and picnic area (we are on FB as Agricampeggio La Tadea). We host Wwoofers in a separate room with bathroom. We ask for collaboration with harvesting and with maintenance of crops and the apiary. At least one of us speaks some English, French, Spanish and German. Wifi available.
The drive to integrate the benefits of urban life with the desire to go back to our origins has given life to the idea of ​​an innovative educational farm: R.A.M. Roots in Moncalieri. We are a group of 6 (2 brothers and 4 friends) who have decided to share their passions, knowledge and dreams together. Everyone has their own duties. We live in a beautiful farmhouse in the Moncalierese hills, immersed in the greenery of the 'Collina Po' park, a UNESCO World Heritage site 15 minutes from Turin. We have a Brewery and Educational Farm. The farm is of 15 hectares: 2 horticultural crops, 1 barley, ½ hops, 1 Italian heirloom fruit orchard and the rest is wood. We have goats and sheep and make cheese, a henhouse, 30 hives with which we produce honey and derivatives, a small fish farm of carp and an Agricultural Brewery, BAM (we produce 100% of raw materials). We grow vegetables in and out of the soil (hydroponics and aquaponics). All resources, as well as waste, are reused in an integration cycle that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes production and benefits for the community. We are inspired by the principles of biodynamics and permaculture both in agriculture and in everyday life. We are founding members of the "Diramarsi" cultural association that promotes cultural and artistic events linked to sustainability on the farm. Depending on the season or availability, we offer a room with a shared bathroom or a tent in the garden in front of the house. Meals are shared together using all our own produce. We will choose together with our guests, according to their passions and skills, the most appropriate activities to do. We like to teach but also to learn.

We are a couple who run a small Bed and Breakfast, situated at 1,100 m, in the woods of the Cozie Alps. We are 6 km up from town and about 50 km from Turin city centre. We have recently taken over the nurturing of the family’s two large organic vegetable gardens from F’s parents who live next to us. We also maintain small herb plots, flower boxes, and the grounds around our building. We need help with all aspects of gardening and grounds maintenance. Depending on the season there are always various types of work to be done from woodcutting and building projects to hiking trail and building maintenance. During our busy periods, we may teach cooking classes, which you can participate in, if you are interested and we can always use a hand with the dishes. Accommodation is a large loft with 2 twin beds in our main building, which has high-speed Internet connection and your own private bathroom nearby. Walking and mountain biking tracks are accessible from our doorstep. We can accept one WWOOFer, from April through November, preferable for a minimum of 3 weeks. We may consider 2 wWWOOFers July through September. Meals are eaten together and made with love from scratch. We are native tongue English and Italian speakers. F. also speaks French.

Our farm is situated near Piossasco which is 30 km from Turin. The farm is situated on a hill and is 8 km from the town. We cultivate crops which are typical to this rural area: vines, vegetables, greenhouse, a small orchard, meadow, an apiary, chickens, goats and sheep. We are certified organic and sell our produce in Torino (this gives the opportunity for WWOOFers to visit the city). Our family consists of two part-time nurses (1975 and 1969) and our son (2003) and at certain times of the year our grandparents who speak German. We also adhere to a social agricultural programme and occasionally have apprentices in collaboration with Torino university.The languages spoken are English (not fluently) and French. Ours is a lifestyle choice that is inspired by eco-sustainability. The activities are varied according the season (please contact us for more details), the WWOOFers will be given the opportunity to assist us and learn technical skills. Accommodation, from January to December, in a room shared with other WWOOFers. At certain times in the year (March, July, November) we go down to south Italy (Basilicata) where we cultivate land that belonged to our grandparents, grow olives and wheat and make olive oil, semolina and pasta. Given the complexity of our lifestyle we prefer a minimum stay of three weeks.

This organic farm, started in 2010, and typical old farmhouse is located in the Monferrato hills about 30 km from Turin and Asti, in a rural area between two nature reserves (the Superga national park and the Forest of Vay) that are rich in hiking trails that wind through meadows, woods and vineyards. I live here with my husband and my son, (2006), and with a family of friends in the recently renovated farmhouse. We have also a small agritourism with rooms and a restaurant. We cultivate fruit and vegetables, have bees, make jams, preserves and cook for the agritourism. Accommodation is in a twin bedded room with private bathroom and meals, mainly with our organic or local produce, are eaten together with our family. We mainly need help with the vegetable garden and fruit orchard, as well as with other jobs on the farm, agriturism and with the bees for people who are interested. We have always lived with respect for nature and try to make sustainable choices. Minimum stays of 15 days from March to October. We speak English and French.
We are Giorgio and Elena, we grow organic fruit on about 4 hectares of land on the slopes of Punta Quinzeina, in Canavese, 50km north of Turin. We produce several varieties of apples, hazelnuts, strawberries, mulberries and various types of summer fruit in smaller quantities. We cultivate a small garden close to home for our own personal consumption. We will soon open up a small fruit processing workshop, and in the future we will start to keep hens and introduce bees. We also garden for private customers. WWOOFers can help us with various tasks in the orchards and in the garden according to the season. We also need help in the kitchen (Elena has been baking sourdough bread and making kefir for a few months). From April to December we can offer a room in our home with a one and a half person bed (for one person or two who want to sleep together). From August to October, if the room is already occupied, we can arrange a bed in the living room (1 person) or a tent in the garden. We live with two dogs in the house, so guests should not be afraid of dogs. Our land is about 4-5 km from the house, which can be reached by car. Walking takes about an hour to the nearest orchard. We speak English and French. We love cultural exchange and we hope to establish a good relationship with who ever comes here, going beyond the simple offer of help but being an experience that can enrich us humanly. Guests can go hiking near the house or in the Gran Paradiso National Park, an ideal destination for climbers and mountaineers.
This farm is located on a beautiful plain in Canavese, about 20 km north of Turin and 15 km south of Ivrea. We are a group of about twenty adults and eight children that live in an old farmhouse renovated using green building techniques. Some of us are directly involved in running the farm, others have different activities. Our group is part of the D., Federation of Communities’ which was founded in 1975, which is experimenting with a social model based on ethical and spiritual values ​expressed through work and art. We rear 100 cattle and produce all the grains needed for their maintenance, as well as for ourselves. We have vegetable gardens and greenhouses for the cultivation of organic vegetables, a small chicken coop and, seasonally, some pigs. We also run a restaurant, as part of our Agritourism project, by reservation only. Accommodation in single or double rooms, in a prefabricated wooden house near the barn. Some of us speak English, some speak French, Spanish and others German. WWOOFers can help mainly in the vegetables garden and vineyard. We can accommodate you between March and October. Help is also needed in the animal stalls and in the house. We cultivate several vineyards and everyone helps with the grape harvest in autumn. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the farm.
Earth, water, rock, wood, close people with whom to share moments of life. This, in 2011, led me to live on this mountain. Since 2015 I am Nehir's father. We are custodians of about five hectares between meadow and forest;I grow vegetables, fruit, legumes and corn for subsistence; we heat the house and the water with a wood stove; we work with always manual tools, without an engine. By choice and pleasure we light up with oil lamps and we do not use electricity or gas. Our village, at 1000 m asl, is between woods and streams, with good spring water, It is about an hour's walk from the bus station in the village (or 15 minutes by car). We eat mainly self-produced food, cooked in a genuine way. I adore: the simple and essential life in contact with the earth, raising my child and evolving in the relationship with other human beings. I would like to share our lifestyle, knowledge and projects with people who bring us other "worlds". We can accommodate in a room or a tent if you prefer throughout the year, for long or short periods, just specify the days when you would like to be accommodated. From our house there are paths for beautiful walks even at high altitude, ideal for those who love the mountains. I speak English, vegans, children and dogs respectful of other farmyard and wild animals are welcome. I hope that there is someone who would like to write to me by letter, I always answer very willingly! Or make a surprise visit here, in mutual acceptance and respect.
My partner and I run the Association whose mission is to take care of all sentient beings respecting their diversity. Our main activity is to take care of our horses in their every day management, education (which takes place within the herd as they live all together) and preparation for their role as co-facilitator in workshops that I lead as Eponaquest™ Certified Instructor, an deep and profound approach to Equine Facilitated Learning (an approach I learned during my years living in the States). We also need help with chopping woods, cleaning the bushes and woods around the property, fixing fences and several other things needed around the farm. We eat everything, but we have the utmost respect for everyone’s choice of food and everybody’s welcome. We buy locally at farmer’s markets or directly at our neighbors’s farms. We do not eat strawberries in January. We live in deep contact with nature and our animals are part of the family (3 cats, 4 dogs, 6 horses), we ask that they be respected and that who comes to stay with us does so with an open mentality to experiencing a different way to manage the animals in liberty and respecting their needs. Travelers are welcome all year around for a min of 15 days and will be accommodated depending on season and necessities; either in a private room or common room. it is also possible to camp (limited space available). We welcome 1 or 2 people, kids as well. Meals will be shared with us or not. you’ll be free to decide. We are half hour from the Torino’s downtown, surrounded by the beautiful hills that include Monferrato and Langhe. The train station is 20 min, but local public transport is very limited. We speak English, French and a bit of Spanish. We live and we work together sharing a piece of life.
