Summer List
The name of this farm comes from the tobacco smuggling that was done here many years ago. Now it is a house but soon it will become a permaculture designed farm We are Giorgia and Francesca, and we have been given this place by a psychiatrist from Turin it is situated in the hills above Genoa 15 min from the sea (by car) and borders the Parco del Beigua. We are both teachers of the Free School of Synergistic Agriculture (Libera Scuola di Agricoltura sinergica) and are active members of the Academy of permaculture. We work and collaborate with the association Terra! which supports this project. The project involves the renovation of a 1900 stone farmhouse, agricultural activities also involving a nearby hamlet  and young people who want to learn natural techniques. To date, we have built a micro-stone house with roof that can be walked on, a small reed bed system, an cob, snail shaped oven, a compost toilet, a solar panel and a thermo-solar. Our goal is self-sufficiency with food and energy and agricultural production especially of wild berries and rose syrup which we sell through local fair-trade and GAS outlets. We are in a forest of chestnut and cherries and live with two dogs and two cats and several people who pass through, especially in the summer. In summer we organize various events, courses and camps for adults and children. Here people come to learn to live in an environmentally friendly way, leave their footprint and have fun !!!

This farm is situated a few kms from Genova and the coast in a small, isolated and peaceful valley. By the side of a river we have built our house but to become a 'proper' farm we need help with the land and surrounding woodland (7 ha). Tasks to be done vary according to the season and to the interests/skills of people who come here and include, opening an old water channel, collecting fire wood for the winter, building dry stone walls, fencing, in the vegetable garden & house, making jams and conserves or helping to teach our son English!

We have a small farm at an altitude of 500m inland from Genova near the source of the Scrivia river, therefore ideally situated for the attractions of the city and for walking and cycling. In 2006 we started cultivating vegetables using the principles of synergic and organic cultivation, (we also grow the famous Quarantina potato) soft fruit and we harvest wild fruit and herbs. We also cultivate roses for syrups. We have 4 rooms with 8 beds in our agritourism and there is plenty of space for other activities (courses workshops etc.).

We have a small organic farm, run by two sisters who are no longer young but are tenacious in carrying on the recovery of the land: we are working hard in restoring drystone walls and with the maintenance of sheds and workshops. We grow fruit trees and have a vegetable garden. The work we have done in recent years is beginning to show rewards with a fair return of vegetables, artichokes and fruit this year. We also hope to have a good olive harvest this year. There are occasionally friends and relatives who come here and are willing to give us a hand when it is needed. Our welcome to you will be on the same line of conviviality, respect and participation, and we ask for your collaboration in the work we do. We focus on seasonal jobs with others on maintenance jobs such as collecting stones for the drystone walls. It would be very nice to have females here and also people who are not so young but are well-motivated. In your free time, in addition to the fantastic nature which surround us, there is the sea with lovely beaches (Blue Flag accredited) a few minutes away by bus, and a culturally rich Liguria with countless opportunities. Guests will be accommodated in the large tavern, from whose six windows you can see the small valley where the stream runs and where the goats go to drink. The languages ​​spoken in addition to the Italian, are Spanish and a bit of French. Unfortunately I do not speak English.

We are a young family run farm and agritourism nestled in the woods between Piemonte and Liguria, between the Beigua Park and the Capanne di Marcarolo Park. We cultivate kiwifruit, chestnuts, strawberries, soft fruit, vegetables, medicinal plants and mushrooms all using organic methods: ingredients that we use in the kitchen of our farm in a genuine and healthy way. Our goal is to create a small, independent ecosystem, a serene oasis, where human /nature integration is beneficial and respectful of both. Our project is constantly evolving: we would like to dedicate ourselves to permaculture and learn natural water purification systems, devote ourselves directly to the herbal transformation of medicinal plants and create a local network of lasting exchanges between farmers, artisans and experts. In our kitchen we prepare traditional dishes, and we are oriented towards a vegetarian diet, so vegans and vegetarians are very welcome. We have two donkeys, a few sheep and three dogs. In addition, our farm has spaces both indoors and outdoors for the organization of seminars, meditation and yoga retreats. We often also host pilgrims going to Assisi, who walk the path of Peace, (Cammino della pace, Chemin de la Paix), which passes not far from the farm. We speak Italian, some English and Anna (our Moroccan cook) also speaks French. We can accommodate two wwoofers in the rooms of the farm, but there is also the possibility to pitch tents in the summer. We provide a computer and wifi. The nearest town is 3 km away and there is the train station and you can get to Genoa in less than an hour and Turin in two and a half hours. We hope to welcome you soon!
Our farm is situated in the Vesima valley, overlooking the sea and topped by mountains an hour from the centre of Genoa and half an hour from the beach. We have a two year old child and another on the way. We grow vegetables on our narrow, steep terraces, almost all the work is manual, and strive to seek simple solutions in order to obtain the result. In the meantime, we will finish building our house in wood, straw and earth, your advice and interest will be most welcome! We live and work in collaboration with other farmers of Vesima, and often you will go from farm to farm. We like to engage deeply with the guests in our lives, to this end, we appreciate and stay at least a month. Not having our own house, the ways in which we can accommodate are varied, imaginative and imperfect, please contact us to discuss.
We are a twenty minute drive from Genoa, Chiavari and Lavagna located in the Val Fontanabuona in the municipality of Neirone. The farm was started ten years ago and we cultivate 1 hectare land with rotation of seasonal vegetables, strawberries and fruit trees, mostly located around the farm. Also in the vicinity we have woods of hazel and chestnut coppice. The olive grove, about half a hectare, is located on the hill by the sea in S. Bartolomeo di Sori. Two years ago we stopped using machines for cultivating and now use animal traction. Our donkey Rosa uses French equipment for ploughing the land and also to dig the potatoes thus greatly reducing the manual labor of hoeing. Work in the vegetable garden requires the presence of two people, one near the animal to start her and stop if necessary, and a driving tool. We use Rosa to carry away the wood, move the hay, bring materials, or bags in the event of excursions, and also to keep the kids entertained. With the help of traces and forestry hooks she helps us move beams and logs of wood from the forest and bring them closer to the road. As well as Rosa, we have Langhe sheep for both milk and meat, currently there are are six. The other animals are rabbits, chickens and a dog. The house has solar panels on the roof. On the back is placed the solar panel for heating water there is a wood-burning fireplace with forced ventilation and the thermal stove heats the water and the radiators. I am Daniela, the owner and my husband Stefano who works in Genoa and helps me whenever he can and our little Samuele, 5. We can accommodate 2 people in the house with 4-5 places for tents or there is a terrace for campers where we have water and electricity. I make homemade bread and many dishes and cakes with our vegetables and fruits, eggs. Cheese is from local farms and sometimes we eat our chickens and rabbits.
