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.

A farmhouse, a barn and 13 has of land - with vegetable gardens, olives, walnuts, fruits and mediterranean scrubland - in a surprisingly wild corner of Chianti between Certaldo, Montespertoli and Castelfiorentino. This is a "place of women for women", focusing on the presence of women and to support the exclusively female role in the fields as this is crucial for the welfare of us all. We are currently 3 women and we host those who would be glad to help out with the varied agricultural, craft and food work that is present in the countryside. Between mid-October and late November we focus on the olive harvest. Accommodation in house or tent, mainly vegetarian food, stays of at least a week.

Our farm is located in the municipality of Montespertoli which is 30 minutes from Florence and 1 hour from Siena. My name is Giovanni Pandolfini (1959) and together with my family we have been moving the farm forward for almost 40 years. I work full time in the field, my wife, Paola (1963) teaches Spanish in high school and helps me when she can. We have two sons; Emilio (1990) lives with us with his partner Yaritza, but they have jobs. Sofia (1997), with her partner Michael, sometimes lives with us, and others, is wwoofing around the world.

Our production is aimed at self-sustaining and selling surpluses directly on the local market, we do not sell to intermediaries. We practice a natural agriculture, agroecological and we are active in the movements of peasant resistance, Italian (Genuino Clandestino) and international.

Our farm deals with forestry (care of the woods), chestnuts, rearing donkeys saved from the slaughterhouse, vegetable garden, maintenance of the house dating back to 1710. We therefore ask to give us a hand to carry out these works to give life and bring a breath of energy to a setting in abandonment and to transmit knowledge that is disappearing. We can accommodate 2 guests in the guest room for periods of no less than 10 days. We like to share meals with the wwoofers and we usually prepare in turn.
