Grosseto

Summer List
Biodynamic farm of 33 hectares with two houses (one for the family and the other is an agritourism), located 9 km from Pitigliano, a beautiful Etruscan/mediaeval town which has remained largely unchanged. Farm situated on a hill with a 360° panoramic view of the Tuscan countryside. 7500 olive trees, 4 ha of arable land, 11 ha of woodland, large vegetable garden, small fruit orchard and a large garden. Accommodation in a comfortable heated caravan (trailer) with bathroom, meals with the family. Help needed all year round. German and French spoken. (it is better to telephone than use e-mail).
We are a family composed of three people (1980.1983, 2016) and a dog. We take care of this farm with a natural agricultural approach: we have a vegetable garden, a young orchard, we collaborate with an area GAS and with neighbouring realities (including other wwoof hosts), we heat wood, we collect olives, we protect wild edible and medicinal plants, we try to live and promote a healthy life in harmony with nature. The scenery is the Maremma hills, near the sea, the Accesa lake, the Petriolo spa and many beautiful medieval villages. Our project is to set up an eco-village here, in which to learn to rediscover the beauty and the sense of living together and to share activities and personal growth. In the farm there is the association Progetto Aurora, which offers expertise in health, wellness and self-care, and which has its tools in healthy eating and natural agriculture. We have an open-space in which to organize workshops and meetings. During the summer we also welcome tourists eager for peace and nature. The wwoofers who will visit us will immerse themselves in our daily lives, we will share vegetarian meals with genuine, biological and possibly local products, we will work together in the vegetable garden, in the woods, in the various self-productions, self-construction and maintenance. The accommodation varies according to the season: studio, caravan or tent in the woods. We host for a minimum of one week, a maximum of one month or more depending on how we find each other. We practice meditation, yoga, music. We speak English, Spanish and French.

Ours is a young organic family run farm which is in continual evolution. Our goal is self-sufficiency in food and energy and the exchange of produce with local farms. We are in the Maremma hills at 250 m above sea level opposite the island of Giglio and Argentario. A daily bus connects our farm with Grosseto and Scansano. We are a couple ('52 and '60) and our children are traveling the world. Our farm is 8 hectares planted mostly with olive trees. We also cultivate vegetables, grapes and fruit trees for our own consumption and lavender for processing into essential oil. We have a small chicken coop, a dog and two cats. WWOOFers can participate in all activities related to agriculture (pruning, harvesting, horticulture, ...), land management, maintenance (dry stone walls, fences, ...) and processing of products (jams, homemade pasta , biscuits, lavender sachets, soaps, creams, ...). We like music, we do not know how to play but have several instruments (a piano) that we can provide. For our guests we have a double / triple room with bathroom, heating and hot water. We prefer WWOOFers to stay not less than 15 days to be able to establish a relationship of cooperation and friendship. We host all year round. 

Summer List
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.
Summer List
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.
Summer List
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.

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 7 ha farm is situated opposite Argentario in the Tuscan maremma, province of Grosseto, 2 hours from Rome and 2 1/2 from Florence. There are 80 olive trees, a large vegetable garden, fruit trees, we live together, make jams and seed vegetables following Biodynamic principles. We make bread together, laugh, learn and get to know each other. There are 4 cats which watch us and many varieties of birds and butterflies. Scansano is a quaint village 7 km away, hitchhiking is easy! English, French and a little Spanish spoken.

We have been farming organically on this farm for 30 years. The farm is located in the province of Grosseto in Scansano, the surrounding countryside is hilly with a lot of woodland. We breed cows and some sheep and have an olive grove. We make cheese and also have a vegetable garden and try to be as self sufficient as possible. We have always been happy to host people who want to be in the countryside and help us with our daily tasks, in this way we exchange our lifestyle with the outside world and vice versa. We ask people who come here to have some interest in our work with the animals, the vegetable garden and olive trees. Accommodation in a room (heated in the winter) in our house or at certain times in a caravan. Minimum stay two weeks, but prefer longer stays. In your free time you can contact other farms in the area and we will be happy to help you explore this beautiful area. We speak a little German and English. Our family is made up of 4 people

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.
