This farm is situated in the province of Pavia in the Ticino Regional Park and has been biodynamic since 1975. Here you will have the chance to learn how to cultivate vegetables (in our 2 ha garden) using biodynamic principles. Accommodation (room with two beds and bathroom) is 1 km from the farm and we have bicycles that you can use for travelling back and forth. We supply all your food but we are unable to prepare meals or eat together due to the organisation of the farm. From June to mid September there is a problem with mosquitoes and flies (a lot of rice is cultivated in this area). I speak English and German, but in the vegetable garden F. (who has worked with us for 15 years) speaks only Italian.
The main activity on this farm, which is situated in the Oltrepò Pavese hills, is bee keeping and here we produce honey, and rear queen bees and families. The days are very long and we sometimes work all day away from the farm and on those days have a picnic lunch in the fields. Sometimes we also transport the bees at night. From May to September we extract honey. Accommodation in house shared with others, with use of kitchen. Stays of no more than 15 days. Some English and Spanish spoken.
