In 2008 I started this organic farm with my partner. We live in Alagna Valsesia at the foot of Monte Rosa 1200m from the village and 1700 m from the splendid Val d’Otro. We, using only natural methods, cultivate potatoes, rye, mixed vegetables and soft fruit. We also have a herd of 20 Saneen and Vallesan goats, a donkey and our dog Fidel. We would like to share all of this, our meals and our knowledge with you for help with: seeding potatoes, caring for the vegetable garden, harvesting produce (wild and cultivated), hay making, cheese making, making bread in our traditional oven, with festas and visitors. We would like to have people from May to October, accommodation in a room with shared bathroom in the ancient mountain refuge in which we stay in for the summer months near Alagna We lead a very dynamic lifestyle, and often move from the refuge to Alagna, and many friends visit and stay. Life in the mountains requires a lot of adaptability, flexibility and strong legs! We are both travelers and speak English and Spanish. Alagna for us is a wonderful place and we hope to inspire you with enthusiasm for the place too!
I am a farmer in the Valsesia and cultivate fruit trees and soft fruit with help from my partner and daughter (2004). Since 2013 we have rented some pasture in the mountains with 4 stone built mountain refuges surrounded by larch and pines under Monte Rosa, at an altitude of 1800m. To get there you have an easy 40 minute walk. We need help from May to September caring for summer pastures and mountain huts - cutting shrubs, collecting firewood and branches, digging and laying pipes for water, with small building and carpentry jobs and cleaning the refuges. We offer a very simple life (at the moment we can only accommodate one person at a time), surrounded by nature, with Spartan accommodation (bring mat and sleeping bag ) inside the huts or tents. We cook directly over the fire or on the stove, take our water from the stream (soon we will make a fountain) and we are preparing a compost toilet. We can get milk, cheese and butter fresh from the shepherds in other pastures. We prepare home made bread, cakes and cookies, collect berries, make jam and cook mainly vegetarian meals. Here there are spectacular views and wonderful opportunities for walking, hiking in the mountains, visiting Walser and if you want you can play the guitar and sing with us outdoors at sunset in the company of deer, chamois, ibex, golden eagles and the rare bearded vulture We speak English and a little French.
