We are a Francesco "Ciccio" and Michela with our son Ernesto live on this farm in the heart of the Po Valley, a WWF oasis in the ‘Parco regionale Oglio’ on the flood plains of the Oligio river. Together with Davide we have been working this farm for 15 years when it was a traditional farm planted entirely with poplar. Since then we have turned the poplar plantations into mixed woodland, planted a small orchard with heirloom varieties (2010-2011) and made a vegetable garden for the use of the family and agritourism. The farm is certified organic since 2014. We raise chickens, geese, ducks and rabbits and we have 2 donkeys and 1 horse which we use for activities with children. Since 2009 we have produced honey. As we renovated the farm in 2005 we can now accommodate groups, schools, scouts, etc. and we are an educational farm and the WWF environmental education centre, and we manage the nature reserve. Jobs, depending on the season and needs of the farm may be: planting and pruning in the orchard, in the vegetable garden, with hospitality and education, pruning in the woods, harvesting and preserving produce from the vegetable garden, with the honey. Accommodation is in one (or more) rooms adjacent to our house.
