Our farm covers an area of approximately 22 hectares, divided into several plots. The main crops are olives, almonds, cherries, figs and fruit trees, there is also a vegetable garden for the farm and family needs. The farm has always been owned by the family, back in 1983 it also became an agritourism an activity which is now essential to the livelihood and social and territorial development of the farm. The farm activities are organized by a team of collaborators and are agricultural -picking olives, almonds, fruit, garden work etc.; and with the agritourism, the transformation of products (jams, tomato puree etc.). Tasks are chosen based on the skills and interest of WWOOFers in order to be of help and support to the people who work here as permanent employees. There are 5 workers here and they are the point of reference for everyday tasks for WWOOFers. For this reason we ask for stays of no less than four weeks, possibly longer, in order to integrate into the work system and to gain a deeper regional and cultural knowledge of the region. Between us English, Spanish, pidgin French and a little German are spoken but everyone else speaks only Italian therefore a basic knowledge of Italian is essential.
