Emilia Romagna

We have run this farm, agritourism and restaurant for 8 years. We chose to live a life in contact with nature and the rhythms of nature, also because cooking is my greatest passion. We have 8 has of land where we cultivate soft fruit, from which we make jams, pastries and also eat fresh in the restaurant. Saffron which we work in in March, re-plant in July and harvest in October, fruit trees which are harvested during the summer and early fall, and we then make the fruit into into cakes, juice and jams. We have a lot of lavender from which we get dried flowers and essential oil, it is harvested and dried in July. We have a garden with vegetables for ourselves and our restaurant and 2 labrador dogs, Sale and Pepe and 2 cats, Chilly and Ginger. Last but not least are our chickens who give us fresh eggs every morning. The house has 4 bedrooms and a small restaurant where we host people who love nature, relaxation, good food, wine and the peaceful surroundings. We have gardens around the house and some woodland that needs maintaining. In spring and autumn we organize 5 day cookery courses in Danish and English for groups. The farm is run by myself and my partner. We welcome people who want to take part in our life, and all aspects of our day from the kitchen garden to the animals, maybe also at the same time learning & teaching something. We prefer hosting couples. Own room with private bathroom in our house, we always eat vegan friendly meals together and look forward to meeting you. We speak Danish, English and German.

We grow vegetables (in open fields and in a greenhouse), soft fruit (blackberries, currants, raspberries, gooseberries), lavender, fruit trees and we harvest wild plants as we live in an uncontaminated area. We have a chicken coop with about 20 chickens, 3 horses, a donkey and 3 goats (and if their pregnancies go well we will have double this number!). At Easter time we are hoping to start a campsite with Yurts with structure which can be used as a dining room. We ask for co-operation for all agricultural activities, depending on the period these will vary from the planting of orchards, harvesting and processing of vegetables, fruit and berries, distilling the lavender, packaging of wild herbs and with the daily care of the animals (feeding, collecting eggs, etc.). Accommodation is in a room or tent depending on the season, meals are eaten together (we are not vegetarians but happily cater for vegetarians).

The farm is situated in the Apennines at an altitude of 500 ms. We are a family of four and we all work together on the farm, each according to our own time and abilities. We breed donkeys, sheep, goats and other farm animals. On the farm, which is also an educational farm, we carry out different activities depending on the season: mainly teaching in the spring; care of the vineyard, trail maintenance and harvesting of fodder crops in summer, the grape and chestnut harvest in autumn, pruning, collecting firewood, restoration and maintenance of equipment and tools in the winter. Whoever is interested in helping us can do so depending on needs of the moment and according to the agreements.

Ours is a small family run farm. We are in Cadelbosco di Sopra, 10 km from Reggio Emilia. The landscape is typical of the Reggio plains, fields of cereals, grass and vineyards. On our farm we have chosen to concentrate on the cultivation of vegetables and fruits, such as peaches, plums, apples and strawberries. All the jobs, from planting, growing and harvesting, are done by hand, as local peasant tradition has taught us. What we produce, depending on to the season and the weather, we sell directly to consumers through the farmer's market, local fairs and from the farm. We think that the desire to return to nature, which is in so many people, should also include eating a healthy and seasonal diet. My wife (50), my son (24) and myself (55) in my spare time work the farm. We started this farm five years ago and together with our two other sons (17 and 29) meet and share the work and experience. We can speak French and English but we believe that life together as extended family means also that you learn the Italian language and with it our spirits. And for this reason those who want to come and spend some time with us, share our cooking, which is typical of Reggio Emilia with fresh vegetables, pasta, meat and all the dishes that come to mind on based on the produce available at the time. The accommodation is in our house and we can accommodate 2/3 wwoofers. Our house is on the edge of the village with a bus and tram service you can easily reach the city of Reggio Emilia, which full of history, pleasant and modern.

We are a young couple, and we have recently moved to the Emilian Apennines to start our project: we want to live as much as possible in harmony with nature. Right now we are restoring a small family vegetable garden, an orchard, woods, fields and preparing to have a small herd of goats. We are also renovating our house and hope to start a B & B. Officially we are not yet a farm and we still do not have animals. We would like to share the beginning of this project with WWOOFers who are willing to help us in the various construction and carpentry jobs, and also in the garden, the orchard, woods and paddocks and with housework. We offer accommodation in rooms shared with any other WWOOFers or alternatively in a caravan. For those who prefer we also have plenty of space for tents. We will eat all our meals together and although we are not vegetarian we eat very little meat. Our home is a place for those who want to stay in contact with nature, take long walks in the woods and enjoy the peace all around us. There is a small stream nearby where you can swim.
