Livorno

Family-run farm of 3 hectares in the hills near the sea in Castagneto Carducci. I (co-ordinator for WWOOF) and my 2 children - who are abroad and here only in the holidays- live on and run the farm with help from friends and WWOOFers. We have chickens, geese, a cat and 2 dogs. Our aim is to provide as much of our own organic produce (i.e. olive oil, eggs, fruit, nuts and vegetables) as possible, and sell the excess (which is generally only oil and eggs). We have a reed-bed system to recycle our water and photovoltaic solar panels. Need help for jobs in permaculture vegetable garden, fruit orchard, olive grove and various other jobs. We collaborate with nearby WWOOF farms, one with a forest garden and reforestation project and the other a biodynamic vineyard. We also participate in a community vegetable garden as we do not have enough water to have a large garden here. Accommodation for 2 people in bedroom with own bathroom or in a comfortable caravan. English spoken.

Our farm is located on the Costa degli Etruschi, in Donoratico, in the province of Livorno, 4.5 km from the sea. Lovers and respectful of nature, in 1993, by choice, we converted our farm to organic. In the past, for years, the main crops were: vineyard, olive grove and artichokes; for about twenty years we have oriented our production on wheat, and in particular on extra virgin organic olive oil, thanks to our 1400 olive trees, and to the vegetable garden for our consumption and pleasure. We take care of all the production cycles of each crop, for the olive trees for example we fertilization, pruning up to harvesting the fruit and bottling and selling the finished product, for the vegetable garden instead we prepare the soil, we plant the seedlings, fertilize, irrigate and harvest. We welcome wwoofers into the family, sharing with them our daily life, helping with the work in the fields, having lunch and dinner together. We offer accommodation with other wwoofers in an apartment on our farm.

The farm is situated near the mediaeval village of Sassetta, 15 km from the sea and surrounded by forest. We have an organic farm. Over the last 20 years the farming has become less important and more and more our main activity is making wooden toys which we sell at markets or festas in the area. These toys all have movement. Although our production is small, it is very time consuming and our WWOOF guests would be given a wide variety of construction jobs, most of which we do outside, as well as some seasonal farm work (mainly raspberries) and help in the house. Accommodation in own room. English spoken.

Our small 5 ha farm is situated in the foothills near to the sea (6 kms). We have cultivated organically for the past 20 years: 2 ha of vegetables (winter and summer), 100 fruit trees, 300 olives. We are a family of 4: us two, our daughter and dog Rudi. Help needed with cultivation and harvesting vegetables which are sold at the weekly market in Cecina and in November with the olive harvest. Accommodation in double room or caravan with own bathroom, heated in the winter. Excellent vegetarian food. Stays of not less that 10 days. We have bicycles you can use and speak very little English.
This is a cultural association with a meditation centre and a place for personal-growth groups. It includes a small biological farm of 6 hectares situated at the foot of the Macchia della Magona and is 6 kms away from the sea along the wine route to Bolgheri. We produce olive oil, jam, herb salt and firewood for our own consumption. Your help is needed for the care and the harvest of 250 olive trees and 50 fruit trees, also caring for the herb garden and cutting fire wood in our beautiful park with ancient trees. Further jobs to be done include house work and the maintenance of the house and land. Your stay can last for at least 3 weeks, or longer if you fit into the centres lifestyle. Sometimes you will be surrounded by many people and sometimes by a few. We offer shared accommodation and bathrooms in the house as well as spaces for tents under the trees. The meals are vegetarian and communal. You can participate in active and silent meditations here and receive individual reiki sessions.

This is a small farm with 300 secular olive trees and many aromatic plants. It is located on a hill in Castagneto Carducci a 20 minutes walk from the beautiful medieval town and 20 minutes by bike from the sea. I think it's important to treat the olive grove and vegetable garden in pursuit of harmony between man and nature. I have two beehives, two horses, two goats, hens, two cats and a dog. Working together is more enjoyable than alone, but I also love to preserve private moments of solitude and am often committed elsewhere. I really enjoy cooking, I'm not a vegetarian but I eat very little meat. I speak English, French and German. I can host for two-week periods in a comfortable caravan, max one or two people at a time.
The farm, established in 2002 by us, Marina architect and Emilio winemaker, is on the hills of Castagneto Carducci we produce Bolgheri DOC, IGT wine and extra virgin olive oil. We are a certified organic farm in conversion to biodynamic agriculture. The activities carried out in the farm every month are on our website. On 2,5 ha of vineyards we begin in February with the pruning in spring ordering the vines, we take off the not useful branches, then bend the branches high weaving them together. In September we harvest, for a month. In the cellar, in September, there is wine-making, replacement, racking and decanting, then, throughout the year we have to bottle, capsule, and label them and pack into boxes. People visit the farm to taste our organic wines. We offer visitors snacks, tastings and small lunches, together with wwoofers working with us on the farm. Akira, our dog is lively and sweet, also our 2 cats, Liebniz and Newton live with us. We have olive trees, from which we make olive oil. We have a small vegetable garden cultivated according to permaculture. Our farm is located 3 km from Castagneto Carducci, a medieval village. The sea is 7 km away. Around here are many medieval villages such as Bolgheri, Bibbona, Montescudaio, Riparbella, Populonia amongst others. By train you can reach the most beautiful Tuscan cities of Volterra, San Gimignano, Massa Marittima, Pisa, Lucca and Firenze. We speak English. We have free wifi. Bicycles for guests. We host wwoofers in our house in a triple room and a twin room, or in a tent, if preferred. I cook personally Tuscan dishes, simple, seasonal, many vegetables and legumes, with aromatic herbs, homemade bread, according to our Tuscan culture that we are happy to share and transmit.

Olive farm in Castagneto Carducci. Help needed with vegetable garden and agricultural work. Beautiful position with views over the sea. Michael is an artist and is happy to give art lessons. English and French spoken. 

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)
