Toscana

Our farm is located in the rolling hills of Siena, 15 km from the city, 2 kms from a small hamlet where there are all the essential services and the bus stop to Siena. We're a couple who are over sixty and we cultivate fodder for animals, cereals, olive trees, some fruit trees for home consumption and we are setting up a synergic vegetable garden. In addition to organic farming we also experiment with biodynamic farming techniques; in addition to all agricultural processing and cutting wood in the forest we take care of all general maintenance: shelters, sheds fences, ditches, road, park maintenance around the house, etc. Some horses, donkeys, chickens, dogs and cats brighten our days. Most of the time is devoted to our goats (30) that are milked by hand 2 times a day and graze in the fields during the day and are kept in stalls at night. We also have a small dairy where, however, only people with the correct hygiene certificates can help out. We can accommodate a maximum of 2 people in a double room with bathroom for minimum of 3-4 weeks, besides Italian we speak French.
Our small family – run farm of 5 hectares, at 1 km from the medieval village of Campiglia Marittima, was born from our desire to live a simpler life tied to the rhythms of nature: in 2010 we came to this important decision after finishing university studies in Turin and after having had business experiences in Italy and abroad. Today, we produce olive oil, white and red wine, we have a large vegetable garden and some animals (8 chickens, 7 pheasants, 2 geese, 3 cats and our family dog Byron). From 2013 we have also opened a small Agritourism. We are looking for people really interested in sharing our work with us, interested in learning and exchanging experiences for the olive harvest, extracting the oil in our small olive mill, pruning, management of the vineyard and vegetable garden, with small maintenance jobs and for many other activities. We would like to host 1-2 WWOOFers all year round in a two-room apartment, (from October to December up to 4 WWOOFers for the olive harvest) for a minimum stay of 15 days. Languages ​​spoken: Italian and English. Waiting for you, ciao for now Giulia & David (we are around 40)

We are a young family with four children and since 2011 we have lived on this farm with a large house that we're renovating. It is located 650 m above sea level, surrounded by a vast forest of oaks, the house is surrounded by 500 olive trees, a fruit orchard with diverse varieties, and pasture and chestnut wood that have suffered years of neglect. The place is quite isolated and is located 5 km from a village of Gaiole in Chianti and a half hour drive from Montevarchi where the Florence-Rome railway line and the A1 motorway are. For now, we are mainly engaged in the recovery of arable land, we take care of the plants and are planting young trees. We have a vegetable garden and dogs, cats, chicken , horses, donkeys and wild boars live with us, each in their own place. We produce olive oil and chestnuts and we also sell firewood. We try to achieve a high degree of self-sufficiency in food and energy. The cuisine is mostly vegetarian but someone in the family also eats meat and fish. WWOOFers can stay in rooms in the house, if available, or in tents; we ask for help in the woods, with the maintenance of orchards, harvesting fruit, olives and aromatic and medicinal herbs, with making conserves, maintaining the dirt roads and other housework. Stays of at least 2 weeks to benefit from the mutual exchange.We speak Italian, German, French, English and Spanish  For us it is a great adventure to live with our children and we are happy to share it with those of you who have the joy and desire to do so too!

This sanctuary for saved animals is situated in the Parco Nazionale di Migliarino, in a beautiful area with rivers, sea and pinewoods. The cities of Livorno and Pisa are nearby. It is a sanctuary for domestic animals: horses, donkeys, cows, goats, pigs, rabbits, sheep and dogs who have been saved from extreme suffering by various animalistic associations and who were destined to be killed and now live freely on four HAs of land and are cared for according to their needs. It is also a centre for environmental education, to teach about vegan philosophy and non violence. Particularly in the warmer months the sanctuary is visited by schools and families who can see and get to know these animals who are normally hidden from view in intensive farming systems. We teach about the environment in relation to the meat and dairy industry and the right of respect for all living things. Accommodation is in the house in a room shared with other volunteers, meals organic and vegan eaten together, no smoking in the house, drugs or alcohol. WWOOFers help with the care of the animals, guided tours and events at the refuge as well as in the household. Please be aware that the works at the sanctuary are physically demanding. We are in need of an extra hand all year long and happy to welcome strong and independent individuals. English spoken.
Our vineyard is located in Terranuova Bracciolini with our land situated in Loro Ciuffenna (AR, Valdarno). The farm has been owned by the Cannonii family for three generations. From the beginning the land was fertilized using only natural fertilizers and no one has ever used herbicides. Marco, the current owner, is adamant that it is his duty to continue to grow in respect for the land that is now in the family tradition. The wines of our farm enjoy the soil and the sun of Tuscany, you do not need any other ingredient, no selected yeast, no enzymes and no chemicals. What is the secret of the high quality of our wine? There are no secrets except the preservation of the earth where he, Marco, was born, gratitude for the work of his ancestors and a deep passion for his work. The Earth is not ours and was not of our parents, but it is the future of our children. In addition to producing wine there are also 180 olive trees that produce an excellent oil. In a large vegetable garden in front of house, are seeded legumes such as pink chickpea of ​​Pratomagno, zolfino beans, cowpea and various other vegetables for sale and their own consumption and to make preserves. Onkar Singh, Indian citizen of the Punjab region, has worked on the farm for 7 years. Elisabeth Roth, Swiss, and Pietro Baroni of Loro Ciuffenna also collaborate on the farm. WWOOFers can learn here that we respect the cycles of nature and that it already has all the ingredients to bring to your table produce of the highest quality. We love eating fruit and vegetables, but we are not vegetarians.

We are two brothers Elia and Daniel (1993, 1991) we have lived in this house of Barbazzano since 2015, giving new life to abandoned land. We are close to Pontassieve, and we are about 2 kilometers from the railway station of Sant'Ellero which, like that of Pontassieve, frequently connects with the Santa Maria Novella station of Florence. The ride takes about 30 mins. Surrounded by woods and vineyards, we are realizing our dream of living in harmony with nature and its cycles. Together, we take care of a beautiful permaculture garden of about half a hectare which provides us with all the vegetables during the year, and with which we prepare mixed vegetable boxes that we bring to Florence every week. We have a small flock of 10 goats, we milk by hand every morning and evening for 6 months a year, then we produce cheese every day in a small dairy. We try to be self-sufficient in as many aspects as possible by rediscovering old knowledge.We reproduce our seedlings, make jams, bread and cheese, work wood and harvest plants and fruit, cut and prepare the firewood during the year for the winter. We have fun and have beautiful parties and dinners, trying to keep the place clean and harmony in the house. We like creative and spontaneous people, willing to share and with a real interest in the field and animals. We all eat together. We speak Italian, English; little Spanish and French. We host in a room for up to 2 people for a minimum of 15 days. It is important that you read the description well and that you arrive in our place with your valid Wwoof Italia membership card.

Ciao! I am a former wwoofer who has decided to put down roots. After 2 years traveling between Central America, Spain and Italy I found this place in the woods 2km from the village of Londa, 10km from the entrance of the National Park of Casentino Forests and 40km from Florence (reachable by train in one hour from Contea-Londa station). The farm was abandoned for over 10 years and now I begin to clear the areas infested with brambles and grow vegetables for our own consumption (partly synergistic partly experimental but always following the biodynamic calendar). There are 80 olives and apricots, plums, fig and apple trees. Future prospects are planting fruit trees and herbs, keeping bees and animals to be as self-sufficient as possible The work for this year may vary from pruning and harvesting olives, wood cutting, building dry stone walls, maintenance of the house, transformation of fruit and vegetables into jams and preserves, but especially the daily care of the vegetable garden. Once a week I make 40kg of sour dough bread in the old oven that I sell or barter with neighbouring farmers for cheese, wine, honey and sometimes meat. We work together and eat together. The accommodation for wwoofers is in the house. I have a laboratory where I cut and sew, work with leathers, fabrics and make puppets. I practical Chinese foot reflexology and I will be happy if you want to show me your feet! I love music and circus arts. I also live with a dog and a cat. The languages spoken are Italian, Spanish, English and a little French.

Ciao, let me introduce myself, I am Ettore and together with Roberto we manage a certified organic farm of 30 hectares, 4 km from Grosseto. I am a young farmer who has returned to the land, my adventure started about 10 years ago. I cultivate mainly olive trees, seasonal vegetables and I also carry out beekeeping, our choice of organic is because we are convinced that we can no longer afford to pollute the land. I also have a passion for gardening and I have prepared a bio-lake, I would like to spend more time there. Year after year we always try to improve the techniques and learn something new, we have many ideas and desire to do. Our diet is based mainly on what we grow and occasionally animal proteins, we are respectful of all food philosophies. I live alone and in two double rooms the house is at the foot of the hills surrounded by greenery. I would like to meet active and proactive people willing to share our reality.
