The passion for wine and agriculture led me to sell my restaurant business and to dedicate myself to the cultivation of grapes on the morainic hills of Lake Garda. The main activity is the production of biodynamic wine of which I personally follow all the phases, from the countryside to the bottling, then I also grow potatoes, barley, rice and ancient grains always respecting nature. I live a little further away from the land with my family, there we also have chickens, ducks, goats, donkeys and a b & b where a room is made available for wwoofers. The wwoofer has a kitchen available but can enjoy eating together with us. We are very close to Verona, Mantua and Lake Garda, so even free time can be easily taken care of. There are many things to do, between animals and the countryside, and anyone willing to learn, share and collaborate is welcome.
The farm is situated in the heart of the Montevecchia Regional Park and Curone Valley of Lecco Brianza, just 30 minutes from Milan and Lecco. Our activities are the breeding of hundreds of chamois goats, transformation of their milk, the production of bread, cakes and biscuits, and direct sales and the market of our products. Elia; Andrea & Alex take care of the flock management, aided by the sheepdog Moro (6), and work in the fields; Juri (34) & Diego (30) are engaged in the production of goat fresh and seasoned cheeses, cottage cheese and yogurt; Giona & Gabriele work with the wood stove while Fausto and Leonardo are in the farm shop. Emilio & Anselmo work with the wormery to make humus. We also breed pigs and heifers outdoors, for the production of sausages and meat. There are a hundred laying hens. The farm is also a social farm and is therefore involved in the insertion programs of disabled children into work (keeping the farm fascinating, preparing biscuits, learning to cook and to work in the greenhouse). The wwoofers are invited to follow the activities that most interest them, will be involved in all the work and share our ideals. Accommodation in a detached house, part of the nucleus of farmhouses dating back to the seventeenth and nineteenth century that characterize the farm, minimum 3 weeks stays.

My name is Francesco, some years ago I left my busy life to live more with nature and a community reality, in harmony with the Pre-Alpine territory. This is why I decided to take care of the conservation and restoration of an old country house, immersed in the woods, between an old chestnut wood and a series of terraces ideal for farming in a peasant style. The main activities are harvesting fruit, berries and herbs both wild and cultivated, and their transformation through natural techniques. Then follows the cultivation of a small vegetable garden and the continuous maintenance of the farmhouse. Two donkeys and a small henhouse have recently been added. I am close to Lake Maggiore and a few steps from the mountains, the train station is a few kilometers away and you can get there by bus to the village. We often bicycle to harvest and help our neighbours. Meals are simple and not very structured, but when we are in company we always gladly cook. The accommodation for now is in an unheated room, while for those who want there is always the barn or the tent.
Since August 2015 we have lived in Monte di Carate in an old farmhouse surrounded by meadows at the edge of the forest, just above the main farms, at 850 m asl. To get there, there is track of 2.5 km, on foot (45 minutes) or with a small off-road vehicle (20 minutes). We overlook the lake with a magnificent view and we are facing South, towards Como. The climate is excellent, generally dry and mitigated by the lake. At the present time we have a farm, and we live with 4 dogs, 2 cats, 3 horses and 5 goats. We have a project for a new barn and the restructuring of the farmhouse in progress, with expansion to make the laboratory and a dryer. We are also recuperating a chestnut forest. The works consist of (non-exhaustive list): installation of fences; restoration of dry walls; building stables; daily cleaning; clearing in the forest; wood cutting; pruning; renovation of the farmhouse; preparation and cutting of fields for hay; chestnut harvesting ... The days will be interspersed with moments of experiences shared with other animals, observation of the native animals, recognition and harvesting of herbs and wild fruits, ... The meals are almost 100% organic, without animal products (vegan), based on whole grains, legumes, vegetables. We will prepare together focaccia, bread using ancient grains, cakes, etc ... The inside spaces are shared with dogs and cats. The general idea is to make a solid foundation for self-production and self-support, which together with the maximum reduction of waste, the use of natural resources, and the harvesting of wild herbs and fruit, should guarantee us most of the necessities to live. Our values ​​are based on the recognition of other individuals, human and animals, all as subjects with full rights to their own emancipation.
Started in 2010, this is continually evolving permaculture project. Located in rural Desenzano del Garda it enjoys both the green of the park of the Moraine hills and the close proximity of the city centre. Although the farm is small, 2 hectares, we have with many activities such as beekeeping, organic agriculture, construction with wood, a nursery with olive trees and we take care of different animals. Also we are dedicated to the study and experimentation of various agricultural techniques and organize teaching activities. Help needed from WWOOFers is for all of these activities, it is varied and proportionate to the abilities and possibilities of each person. Meals are generally prepared and eaten together, the meals are mainly vegetarian and we use mainly organic food. We would like a culinary exchange to expand our new cookbook with delicious dishes. We provide 2 beds in the common room in the house and in the summer there is the possibility of camping with compost toilets and outdoor showers. We speak English, Spanish and Catalan well.

The community is mainly agricultural, but not only; inside there are bread-making workshops, carpentry, processing of horticultural products, handicrafts (macramé, sewing, soap). Our intent is to experience the intellectual and material living together, sharing everyday life with people who approach us. We live in mutual respect towards all living beings and the environment that hosts us. It is based on social relationships, everyone has a room to spend the time he / she dedicated; the rest of time and space is shared. Mutual understanding, even of life, giving the possibility to test their ideas and skills; through mutual respect you can build an identity beyond an already pre-packaged model. We ask for collaboration in the fields or participating in the various daily work; we also ask the willingness to share the daily life actively participating in the sharing of household work, such as preparing lunch or dinner or clean the common areas, putting in turn along with all of us.

We are a very large group that aims at a sustainable lifestyle in contact with nature. We have recently rented a farmhouse with land, constituting an Agricultural Company. We are a dozen friends - with different backgrounds - united by the desire to "live well". Not all live here all the time, but there is always movement and exchange (and always many guests). In this period we are focusing a lot on the 3ha of vineyard, 800 square meters of vegetable garden, 10 bee hives, in addition to maintenance work on the house. For now the rooms are shared and there is space for tents. We like to share, in addition to work moments, also free time: bathing in the lake, walks, parties, bonfires ... There are beautiful places on the lake and in the mountains which we try to take time to enjoy. The weekends are the period when many friends from Brescia come to the farm, both to give us a hand, and for a lunch / dinner all together. We have work groups (vegetable garden, vineyard, house, kitchen ...) and a weekly meeting where we discuss the progress and needs of the work. We focus a lot on self-training through first-person experimentation. Even meals are shared, everyone helps in the preparation of food, table, dishes. The foods are basically organic, the vegetables from our garden. We cook, almost always on a wood stove, vegetarian and we like to experiment with new and different recipes. We believe in openness as a key value: friends and relatives, cyclists and walkers often pass by. Everyone does his part, putting in what he can, in a broad vision of mutual exchange, help and trust. The area is beautiful, on the CAI path, it is easily reachable by bus and bicycle from Brescia. The space is open to those who want to share. You're welcome!

We are five brothers aged between 25 and 40. We cultivate the land that our family has had for three generations in the hills a few kilometers from the shore of Lake Garda. On a 25-hectare estate we produce wine, oil and local ancient varieties of cereals, and we grow fodder for our horses. Our riding school offers lessons for children on horseback riding and activities, and offers programs for youths and adults with disabilities, in collaboration with local institutions and associations. The farm is open for visits, courses, events and tastings, and there is a farm shop where we sell our produce. Through organic farming, the care of the vineyards and the manual and high quality processing techniques of our products we work hard to offer a good and healthy product, whilst safeguarding the health of the soil and the integrity of the landscape. You will be asked to participate in the work in the vineyard and in the countryside, maintenance and support in the wine making activities, and collaborate during events and tastings. Accommodation is in a private room with bathroom and shower, connected to our house. In the summer we like to cook outdoors and entertain the friends that pass through, so there will always be activity here. If you are looking for peace you can always have a private space and quiet to relax. The farm is located in open countryside, surrounded by vineyards and woods. You can easily reach the neighbouring villages by bicycle (there are two at your disposal) through the bike path that runs through the property. For trips to other cities we are available to take you to the nearest bus stop or train.
