Perugia

We're a family of two adults and two children, living in the mountains on 25 hectares including organic olives, wine/table grapes, extensive fruit orchards, woods, pastures with a cow, dairy goats, sheep, various poultry, cats, dog. We produce our own vegetables, fruit, meat, dairy products, eggs, for a mini-CSA and for trade. We're interested in permaculture and “forest gardening”, green building, edible wild plants, medicinal herbs, local traditions. Projects include improving our strawbale barn, tending a large vegetable garden, running an agriturismo, stonewall construction, increasing and caring for our collections of heritage-variety and rare fruits (we have 350 different varieties of apples!). Possible experiences for WWOOFers include working in the vegetable garden, cutting-stacking firewood, planting trees, repairing fences, helping in the fields, irrigating, spreading manure, animal care, harvesting fruit, helping with the agriturismo or children, weeding (see farm website for details). We prefer hosting people who are strongly motivated to learn about sustainable agriculture. Accommodation in our house (or your tent if you prefer), WiFi (though not always functional), meals mainly vegetarian, and organic when possible. Maximum 6 people, unable to accommodate children. Minimum stay 1 week. English, Italian and Spanish spoken. Contact preferably by e-mail.
We live in a lovely valley in Umbria, 5 km from Magione with all amenities and a train station. The WWOOFers can come with us for shopping or visit other towns but there also is a bicycle to ride to town. We fell in love with Umbria and after a 10 years restoration, we decided to leave the high-tech rat race and shift to a simple and organic life. We now live in a quiet and beautiful area immersed in nature. We have 2 hectares of land with olives trees and currently prepare a large enough vegetable garden. We started a year ago to plant fruit trees. We host guests for vacation in an independent house but now focus on developing the land around us and strive to be self-sufficient for all vegetables and fruits. There is an endless list of projects (1 of the next is setting up a grapevine pergola) but the WWOOFers will be able to help and participate in daily activities on the land (vegetable garden, olive trees care, olive picking and pickling, wood gathering, fruit trees maintenance, planting, plants propagation, finding out how to use our bread oven without burning the bread !) according on the seasons. We hope WWOOFers will learn and experience country-side living but we also hope this will be an exchange, cultural if not agricultural. We can host WWOOFers (one single or a couple) from March to mid-December for periods of 1 to 4 weeks in a bedroom with private bathroom and entrance. Our visitors can enjoy nice walks in the fields and the woods around. We speak English, French and Italian. Welcome!

This farm was started in 2005 thanks to the enthusiasm of Clelia and Riccardo, both of whom graduated from the Faculty of Agriculture, Clelia from Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and Riccardo - Viticulture and Enology. In the early years of production we have refined our techniques are now offering products that exploit the quality and potential of our land. Clelia Cini organizes coordinates the olive oil production, stirring, expertly, using experience gained at home and knowledge that she acquired at the University. Our farm is organic and we are very careful to respect the environment in which we are situated. The farm covers about 45 hectares of woodland, arable land, vineyard and olive groves. Our main work focuses in the vineyards (about 3.5 ha) and olive trees (about 4 ha). Our main produce is wine and oil. From this year we have also started to produce grape juice and grape jelly. On the farm for the family use we also have a chicken coop, 4 goats (from which after weaning the kids we get milk and make cheese) and raise two pigs a year which we butcher in January. Every year we also have a vegetable garden. We became aware of the WWOOF program from our friends and we were immediately interested, we have always been a hospitable family and like to show our farm to people and share our knowledge and our working days. We look for a a reciprocal exchange in that we can offer our knowledge but we believe that we can also learn much from you!
We mainly grow vines and also olives, our agricultural methods require a close contact with plants and almost all the processes are done manually. The project was started by 3 friends (Rocco, Simone and Alessandro) who started to run a farm purely because of their love for agriculture and nature. The Farm is located at an altitude of 200-350 m above sea level, a territory historically favored by the Etruscans for viticulture and fruit growing in general. The soils are sandy with subsoil of sandstones and are rich in minerals and sediments left by the ancient Tiberinum lake. We have about 7.5 hectares of vineyards, including 3 hectares of old white grape vineyards planted between 1970 and 1980; the other red grape vineyards were planted between 2005 and 2012. In line with our production philosophy strongly linked to the territory, we cultivate only varieties of indigenous grapes, such as Sangiovese, Grechetto, Trebbiano, Malvasie, Barbera and Sagrantino. The entire farm has been certified by ‘Suolo e Salute’ since 2012 and we practice biodynamic agriculture through the use of herbal teas, 500, 501 and biodynamic compost. We perform the dynamization by hand and spray the preparations with a small copper shoulder pump. We sow leguminous plants and other species between the rows of vines to nourish the soil and stimulate biodiversity. We follow the biodynamic calendar of the lunar cycles and constellations for working the land, for sowing and for decanting in the cellar.
A family run farm located in the hills behind Assisi at 650 m above sea level were we raise beef cattle and pigs, and cultivate cereals, legumes and various vegetables. The jobs in which WWOOOFers can help vary throughout the year, depending on your capabilities and the seasonal needs of the farm. The minimum stay is 2 weeks. Accommodation in a renovated farmhouse with a kitchen, but for the more adventurous we have a lot of space for tents! Our diet, as we breed livestock, is omnivorous, but varied and flexible. No public transport but we take to and collect from railway stations of Assisi, Foligno, Spello or Valtopina, or Perugia airport.
This farm is located in the hills between Perugia and Gubbio, in Santa Cristina. In the park, which is completely fenced there is a riding school, stables, olive trees and trails.

We grow vegetables and also harvest ‘pick your own’, experiment with health education and have a synergic vegetable garden. There is B & B. We need help with all jobs. Accommodation in a room with shared bathroom, there is also space for tents. A little German spoken, stays of at least 3 days.
