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.
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.
We have a small farm surrounded by woods near to Saturnia in Tuscany. We, a couple aged 65 and 64, came to live here with our 2 daughters in 1986 looking for a place to live independently, cultivate the land, and live with our animals. We have been organic since the beginning and we have sheep, goats, donkeys, a horse, and farmyard animals. We have 400 olive trees and a large vegetable garden. We try as much as possible to live from our produce and to be self sufficient. Our daughters no longer live here but often visit us with their children and friends. Whoever comes here can help us prune and harvest the olives, care for the animals, help in the garden and participate in other jobs on the farm (hay, fields, etc.). We are happy to show and teach our daily tasks. Meals eaten with the family, simple good organic food. Accommodation is in a separate house a or a caravan. Stays of at least 4 weeks preferred. English, German and Italian spoken.
