We have 40 horses and stabling for 24 horses, all our horses free range on pasture. The farm is family run , ourselves and our son. F. takes care of the horses using his natural methods and R. takes care of the house. All year we have people who come to work with us for at least 1 month. We have employees and travellers with whom we share our activities, meals and life style. Our farm is organic but is not certified. We would like to share our work with the horses with people who are interested in actively participating. There is always work to be done with the horses, in the stables, pastures, fences, veterinary, making hay etc. We are renowned for the way we care for our horses. We heat our house with wood, and we have a seasonal vegetable garden. Activities: We all work together, with the horses in the stables and pasture, building and repairing fences. Olive harvest (November), collecting and chopping wood, repainting the house, other repairs etc. We all share in cooking and cleaning. Accommodation in shared room, meals eaten together. We speak English & German.
The house where I live (with my son, when he returns from university) is located in a small village of about 15 houses that were completely abandoned and then purchased by a group of people with the intenzione to create an eco village. We are 7km from the small town of Anghiari and is home to 12 families, some of the houses are holiday homes. I have a ha of land with olive trees, an orchard and a small vegetable garden, there is always something to do, work in the vegetable garden, grass cutting, maintenance of dry stone walls, maintenance of the house. We also organize courses and meetings about Ecological Communication, when a there is meeting I also need help organizing the hospitality. Accommodation for WWOOFers is in a tent or caravan (when it is free), and there is the possibility to get in touch with the world of eco-villages, as we are active members of the Italian Network of Ecological Villages (RIVE).
