Grosseto

Summer List
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.

In the Tuscan hills on the border with Lazio, between the sea, thermal springs at Saturnia, Lake Bolsena and the Etruscan cities lies our 37 ha farm. We are; myself Marilena (63) who is responsible for receiving guests and running the agritourism, the kitchen and the garden, and my brother Roberto (49) who runs the farm and carries out the general maintenance. We cultivate everything needed for the agritourism; vegetables, fruit, saffron, lavender, olives, vines, rose hips, artichokes and cereal crops which we also use to feed the animals. We also have chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, goats, rabbits, a horse, 2 dogs and 6 cats, and a wood from which we obtain our firewood. We have a Mediterranean diet mainly using our produce and usually eat meals together. We prefer to host versatile, creative and dynamic people, who happily collaborate with us in the varied jobs and who are ready to learn and dedicate themselves to the jobs in hand, and who speak some English. We are very keen on recycling as can be seen clearly all around the farm. The nearest village is 17 km away, there are no buses and the train station is 20 Km away. Accommodation is in an apartment in the agritourism, but when it is full in a tent with outside toilet. Minimum stays 2 weeks and prefer people to stay longer depending on the needs on the farm.

Our family runs this farm in the High Maremma near Montieri (Grosseto), Gerfalco. After having used the farm as a holiday home for years, we decided to start farming, we have 10 ha of land many of which are woodland. At the moment, in particular, we are focused on the restoration of a chestnut wood which had been abandoned for many years in the area of ​​Cornate, a protected area. We produce flour (drying the chestnuts for a month according to the traditional methods and grinding them in a stone mill) and we sell chestnuts. We also have an olive grove and produce organic olive oil. We have farmyard animals and in the summer a vegetable garden. We also want to get bees and start up small scale honey production. Summer and autumn are the times when there is most to do. We are looking to host WWOOFers who are interested in knowing this reality, in an area between the countryside and the mountains, in an area of ​​Tuscany which is still very authentic. For us, the important thing is to share knowledge and a heritage which is being lost and which, in our small way, we try to safeguard. In the house we do not have television or internet ... when we need to connect we go to the village. The house is isolated and the bus stop is about 3 km away. Accommodation for WWOOFers is in an apartment when there are no guests, otherwise in a wooden house near the house with use of kitchen and bathroom in the house. We prefer to accommodate one person at a time (no pets) for a period of 2 weeks. We offer mainly vegetarian food. The preferred language is Italian, but we speak a bit of English and Spanish.

The family consists of myself, my partner ('74 and '69), and our two children (2005 and 2008). Our farm is located at the edge of the village, a small medieval town of about 200 inhabitants and is in a panoramic position overlooking the sea. The farm is made up of several plots of land making a total of 2 has with 80 olive and some fruit trees. We have a vegetable garden, chickens and cultivate saffron. We are making a small campsite which can accommodate up to 12 people. I am a carpenter and my partner teaches yoga. We have a family school with our children. Whoever comes to visit us shares our lives according to the seasons: management of vegetable garden and chicken coop, making bread, preserves, stacking and filling the woodshed, pruning the trees and harvesting olives, harvesting and drying the saffron, cooking Our house is a small detached house a few tens of meters from the land; the accommodation that we can offer is a separate room on the ground floor, adjacent to the boiler room and pantry/laundry room. In the room there is a sink whilst the bathroom is on the first floor (you have to go outdoors to reach it). We can accommodate all year by prior arrangement. Family also speak English, French and Spanish. The sea is about 30 km, the lake dell'Accesa 20 km, Petriolo 45.

We support the land, partially cultivated naturally, the other has been left on its natural path for 20 years to return it to its origins. Today, we are happy to reward its value with a “Contratto di Custodia del Terreno” I, Giancarlo, was born here, my partner, Elisabeth, settled here in 2015. We share our daily life with Beppe, the cat, her friends, Wwoofers who want to dive into a sustainable / sensitive reality and with our friends (peasant farmers). With them, other farms and people in the area, we are counting on building a solid network. We spend a lot of time on this goal which we follow also in our work. We collaborate with other farms by buying / exchanging products to add to those of our modest garden to provide vegetable boxes of seasonal products which we deliver to clients. We do this in the belief of sowing consciousness, awareness and love. We aim to confront ourselves in daily life with consumerism and general impoverishment in order to be less and less accomplices of the present system. You can give us a hand to spread our message and in everyday jobs that are based on this logic as with the vegetable boxes and - according to the season -, the olive harvest -pressing the olives in our olive mill, pruning, care of the garden, making preserves, etc. The meals, always shared, will all be obtained by optimizing and respecting our activity, keeping in mind the local developments. Our diet, which we do not want to label, is based mainly on vegetables. We are located in the heart of our Maremma, 12 km from the next town, Scansano. We want to build strong relationships, so we do not host for one or two weeks. We like requests that reflect this desire and welcome our choices.

We have this family run organic farm of about 55ha (of which 30ha belong to us and the rest is rented) and the main activity is sheep farming (about 300 sheep) for milk and there are also 35 Simmental beef cattle. The farm is almost completely autonomous in that we produce both fodder crops and cereals for the animals. We need help all year round, the animals need looking after even on Sundays. We also need help to cultivate the fields, make fences, and when necessary give milk to the lambs. I welcome people for a minimum of 2 weeks but I prefer for a longer period. You will stay in a cheerful and pleasant atmosphere, we eat together, the accommodation offered is an apartment with bathroom. We speak only Italian but happily host people who do not know our language. The farm is located in the Maremma near the Spa at Saturnia. There are many little known but interesting places to visit in the area.
We are a couple A. and C. ('86 and '82), and soon we will be three! We have a farm about 15 hectares in the hills inland from Grosseto. We just settled down after a few years wwoofing and various other activities. In these few months we have expanded the old olive grove, created a small orchard and our first vegetable garden. In addition to agricultural activities we also rent out three houses adjacent to ours. Since we started the activities have been constantly evolving: we need help both with existing crops, vegetables, fruit trees, olive groves, vineyards and some maintenance spaces around the houses, as well as for new activities including saffron, soft fruit, artichokes and many other projects. We can accommodate one or two wwoofers all year round. Accommodation is in a shared room, in a detached house (if free) or in tents. Meals are shared but we need help with preparation! In your spare time you can take walks down to the bordering river, relax, or visit the wonders of the Tuscan Maremma, we are 30 min from the sea, and 40 mins from hot springs and the mountains (Amiata). A. speaks only Italian but C. speaks some with English, Spanish and French.
Summer List
The farm was founded in November 2015 and is a Didactic and Social Farm. Produce vegetables, aromatics, officinal herbs, wild plants and edible flowers. It also produces ornamental plants with which to create gardens for individuals. Two separate plots make up the total 20ha. At the moment I work alone, with the help of my family and my partner. The goal is to create an ecological, profitable and beautiful reality that provides products and services to local communities, collaborating with social cooperatives, non-profit organizations, social promotion associations, Custodian growers and the Metalliferous Hills farms. I apply permaculture and all the agricultural techniques that I consider to be valid. Swale, k-lines, pallets, relaxation areas, aromatic gardens, compost-toilet, pond, berries, orchard, geodesic dome and much more are to be realized / maintained. The olive harvest and the harvesting and delivery of the edible flowers, the walks in the woods and the design are all activities to be repeated every year. Here everything is to be built or modified to find the right balance. There is no house on the property, but a small caravan ..... and a lot of space for tents. There is water and electricity. I'm omnivorous. Usually I eat and sleep at my partner's house and at my parents' house (Bagno di Gavorrano) there are another 4 beds and 2 at the family vegetable garden. I prefer to welcome those who stay for more than 2-3 weeks, so that there is time to understand how the various parts of the farm work, so you can know and so that there is at least a week in which I can do experience wwoofer independence in farm activities. I speak Italian, French and English (but I use them little and I'm a bit rusty), I understand Spanish very well, but welcome all those who can teach me foreign languages.
Summer List
Ours is a small farm, 1km south of Roccatederighi, up in the hills of Tuscany with a beautiful view over the Maremma towards the sea. We work about 9 hectares of diversified land. We have olives, vines, woodland, fruit trees, chestnuts, almonds, vegetables, herbs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, bees, a dog and cats. We follow the ideas of biodynamic farming. We carry out the spraying and preparation of compost. We try to preserve the natural surroundings and “wildness“ of the place. We are not a producing farm, all we do is for ourselves, self sufficiency or exchange with friends. We make really high quality olive oil and a little wine. we also have a mechanic, woodwork and blacksmith workshop: we try to do as much as possible ourselves: grow our own food, carry out building jobs, repairs, solar off grid electricity, water, home and unschooling. During the summer we live completely outside. We have an outdoor kitchen and living room under the trees. There is a shower outside but there is also a simple, spartan bathroom with shower in parents house. We often host guests, friends and wwoofers, trainees and international volunteers. For us volunteering is an exchange of lives, powers, different cultures, experiences, languages, ideas and utopias. it is not a business such as: you work for us and we give you food and bed, the goal is to get something done, keep the farm running and work together, enthusiasm and enjoyment should also be a leading force. the farm is run by: - Gunther (1968), Nicole (1981), Olmo (2008) with thanks to all the helpers. We live together. We work together. We cook and clean up together. We eat and drink and party together.

This farm is situated in the commune of Seggiano, an area famous for its olive oil, in the foothills of Monte Amiata. The farm, abandoned in the 50s has been reclaimed in the past years and covers an area of 6 ha of woodland and olive grove. I work the land using the principles of permaculture and synergic agriculture. The buildings have been restored using green techniques and the farm is self sufficient in energy from photovoltaic solar panels. Hospitality: I love travelling and visiting new places: as I have often been a guest myself I have a certain flexibility based on kindness and hope to apply these principles to my guests here. We naturally all eat and cook together. Accommodation is in the house, in a room with bathroom, in a tent or in a caravan by the river (which you can also swim in) depending on availability. I need help (I hope to work alongside you as much as possible) in the vegetable garden, fruit orchard, with harvesting fruit and making jams and collecting firewood. There are always plenty of projects; building a compost toilet, a tree house, putting an irrigation system in the garden, etc. There are nearby hot springs so if you like bathing in hot water bring your swimming costume! I speak English, French and Spanish,
