Small organic farm of 7 has located on a hill in the municipality of Borgotaro (between Parma and La Spezia), in a W.W.F. reserve. 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). There is no public transport and the nearest village is 8 km away. There is a railway station at Borgotaro. We provide bikes and are willing to give lifts in the car. For people with cars we are down a I km unpaved road. Usually, depending in the work that we are doing we ask for help in the mornings and the afternoons and one whole day are free., Stays of at least 2 weeks to allow time to get to know the routine and benefit from your stay. English spoken. Free Internet access. We look forward to meeting you,
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.

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. The train station is 7 kms away and from there you can catch trains to the famous Cinque Terre (1 hour). We speak: English, Spanish and French.
