Summer List
Our family run farm where 7 of us live and work: Americo and Diana, parents (86 and 76), Piero (42) with his wife Jar (35) and son Jigo of 6 years, and Emanuele (43) who lives here also with Lorenza (37). There are also two cats, some hens and two goats. We have a vineyard of nearly 3 hectares, about 150 olive trees, some fruit trees, a vegetable garden, and we grow everything biologically, even if we are not certified. We have two large restored farmhouses with 7 independent apartments we rent during the year, especially in the summer. The farmhouse may be full only from mid-July to mid-August, and at this time wwoofers can stay in the tents we provide. On the farm there is a "Museum of Rural Civilization in Val Vibrata", a collection of tools and objects that were used in our area up until a few decades ago ... We speak Italian, English and Thai and we have internet connection. The main jobs are those related to the vineyard (pruning, removing leaves etc,) and the cellar (harvesting and bottling). Then there is the olive harvest and the care of the vegetable and the garden.
We are a cooperative of young people who cultivate 23 hectares with vines, olive trees, orchards, vast fields of grain and a small plot of saffron. We take care of the earth through treatments with biodynamic preparations. We have an agritourism which we have renovated from an old farmhouse, and host groups for courses and seminars. We have created a school farm, for children 3 to 10 years, which is the heart of the farm, to combine education, agriculture, arts, crafts and hospitality. We welcome those who want to know our farm, those who believe in the uniqueness of every encounter, to share research on organic and biodynamic production, to learn along with us living and working in the nature that surrounds us. The work is based on horticulture, maintenance of the environment, care of the fields, for the grape and olive harvests, all of which require sensitivity and predisposition to the relationship with the children in the kindergarten and in school. The accommodation may be shared if there is more than 1 WWOOFer and is on the farm or in private houses.
Our farm is located in Cellino Attanasio, about 40 minutes from the sea and 50 minutes from the Gran Sasso. We are reopening a farm which had been closed for years. We need to sort out the rooms, to finish the boarding kennels for dogs, to restore the garden, we have about 600 olive trees to follow and many fruit trees: walnuts, apricots, cherries, apples, over 1/2 hectare of vineyard .. we have other ideas for organic production for the near future, but we are really at the beginning. We would like to share our experience with motivated people who really want to see how to initiate a different life choice .. the experiences we are doing are unpredictable and unusual .. and we need motivated and enthusiastic help that allows us to finalize our small objectives in the medium term: the rooms for the B & B and the boarding kennels for dogs, the garden and the olive grove. Here I am on the farm by myself, I am Claudio, 44 years old and I have chosen to take care of this land, leaving behind me the city and my profession as an architect. I hope to know and host simple and practical people who want to follow this path with me and that together we can learn a lot and work in harmony. I speak a bit of English and French.
Our is a very small farm: 13000 m2 on the outskirts of the city of Vasto. Contrary to what you would think the area is very silent and the land unspoiled. For forty years (the time when we bought it) it has been worked organically. We were initially enrolled for several years at the SUOLO E SALUTE for official organic recognition. Currently my husband and I are retired and we need help the fields which we have from friends and paid workers. The jobs are: maintenance of the green around the house, cleaning of the chicken and the rabbit to increase the fertilizer, watering the new olive trees, harvesting the olives in October, working in the garden. The accommodation offered is in a single room close to our rooms. It is possible to reach the centre of town by foot in 15 minutes. WiFi. We are accustomed to hosting in our family and are welcoming in a simple and natural way Help in the countryside is important, but what we care most about is the cultural exchange and the transmission of the WWOOF principles to high school students for whom we would like to prepare alternatives to School-Work.

This is a small young farm devoted to the cultivation of ancient cereals, legumes and food hemp in Abruzzo, in the upper Tordino river valley at the foot of the National Park of Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga and 10 km from the city of Teramo. We deal directly with the entire supply chain from cultivation to processing and packaging of the seed up to the sale of the finished products. Among our projects, the construction of rural area providing fun and educational activities with children based on contact with nature and with the world of agriculture, and the restructuring of an ancient water mill on the river. Our family consists of Simona (architect), Alessio (anthropologist), Enrico 4 years and Filippo 18 months, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 6 hens. We inhabit a village of 10 houses where eight people live permanently and carry out activities not only strictly with production, but also of information and dissemination of rural values, economic solidarity and critical consumption. We live a simple lifestyle. We are omnivores but eat a lot of vegetables and grains, and grow most of our food. Accommodation is in our house or a tent for periods of at least 2 weeks. We can speak English and a little French and Spanish. We like to accommodate families with children.
We are two guys who are realizing a dream: to revive the beautiful medieval village of San Pio di Fontecchio immersed in the Sirente Velino Natural Regional Park, half an hour's drive from L'Aquila. We are carrying out a project started in the early years of 2000 by two extraordinary people (Alfonso and Caterina) that is based on a widespread reception in the village. Giorgio takes care of the garden, the vegetable garden, the park and takes care of providing tourists with all the useful suggestions for a stay to discover the naturalistic, artistic and eno-gastronomic beauties of the area, I (Stefania) instead, I deal with communication and of the external relations of the company and at the same time I work as a project designer and trainer in the research of funds for public and private bodies throughout Italy. The type of hospitality we offer is based on the principles of responsible tourism, we prepare meals with the produce from the garden, buy cheese and meat from local producers and have breakfast with the jams of Giorgio's father. We cultivate and promote the knowledge of saffron. We can accommodate one or two wwoofers at a time for up to seven days during the month of October, March, April, May, June and July. Accommodation is provided in one of the free houses or in the house where we live with a shared bathroom. The tasks that volunteers could do are: picking the saffron flowers and taking out the pistils (in the month of October), arranging the fences, manually weeding the garden and the vegetable garden, following the composting operations, performing the pruning, cutting the grass, sow in the vegetable garden, carry out other gardening operations and maintenance of the botanical garden (cuttings and division of tufts, transplants), preparation and painting of outdoor furnishings. We we are happy to welcome volunteers from all over the world.
We sold the farm in the mountains and bought a small plot closer to the sea. For now we are in the process of reorganization and we cannot accommodate wwoofers. But anyone who wants to say pass by and say hello is welcome

My son (11) and I live in this old house mid way between the Adriatic sea and the Gran Sasso national park surrounded by 1 ha of land, in the hills. WWOOFers can help me in the vegetable garden, with land clearing, making new fences, caring for the chickens and domestic animals, harvesting fruit and making natural preserves and with maintaining the house (which needs a lot of work!). A very isolated place and I do not have a car. Only Italian spoken.I and my 12 1/2 year old son live in an old country house halfway between the Adriatic Sea and the natural park of Gran Sasso (TE), surrounded by almost 1 ha of land in the hills. WWOOFers can help me in the care of the garden, cleaning the land, cutting wood, making new fences, caring for the hens and domestic animals, harvesting fruit and making  preserves, with house maintenance (which is in great need of help!). We do a lot of bart a and trade with friends in the area, such as: (exchange of healthy food, aid and expertise). We also go to farmers markets. We are active in the growth of a really supportive and environmentally friendly reality. Hospitality is rather spartan and the food strictly vegetarian. I have a car and I can pick you up at the train station or bus stop (Bellante Stazione). I prefer telephone contact. I speak only Italian, also accept foreigners as long as they write to me in English by text message. The house numbering was changed by the council from 28 to 11, but the house is the same! Thank you

We are a small farm officially born a year ago, there are four of us (Annalisa), my husband Pasquale and our girls Sabrina 17 years, Chiara 14 years. Our origins are Neapolitan and the choice to change life was dictated by a desire to start living, we have a small vegetable garden that allows us to provide (in part) our needs, we have about 300 olive trees, hens, a rabbit, two dogs and a cat that live free and 3 cats that honor us of their presence at home. We grow cereals and ancient grains with the project of giving birth to a small pasta factory. We understand English and my daughter speaks English and Spanish, we offer hospitality at home, food is always shared, we need help for small tasks in the garden and in the management of the small orchard and olive grove.
We are a small farm located about 4 kilometers from the Adriatic Sea and to the east of the Apennine mountains near the town of Giulianova. Giulianova train station is about 5km away and on the north south Adriatic train line (Bologna-Bari). There is also a bus from the station to about 500 mt away. On this land sits a beautiful, old stone house which was originally built in the late 1800’s. We have about 1,5 acre or 7000 square meters of vineyard with the potential to plant and cultivate more. The existing vines were planted in 1968. On the land there are also about 120 olive trees which produce an exquisite oil when harvested. Work needed depends on the seasons. There is pruning to be done in the Winter, Spring and Summer. Harvest for grapes and olives happen in the Fall. First with the grapes. Throughout the year there are house projects and other practical work to be done. We are a couple from Italy and California. We speak both English and Italian. We eat simply but very well, with lots of fresh, local ingredients. Lodging is simple and straight forward as well. We get great satisfaction from harvesting and producing our own wine and oil and look forward to sharing this experience with our WWOOF guests!
