A small farm located in the pre-mountain area above the town of Salò. I, Silvia, and my husband Nicola, take care of olive trees, bees and saffron. On the farm there is a dog, a cat and a chicken: I would like to be able to increase the number of hens and maybe add some other animals. The bees are located in the main farm with the exception of the nomadic period where they are taken to higher mountain areas. The olive trees are distributed in different fields between Salò and Valtenesi. The activities on the farm are varied and concern the care of the land, the olive trees, the vegetable garden and the apiary. We have only recently acquired the farm and therefore we are often engaged in maintenance or consolidation of the structures (chicken coop, porch, fence, woodshed ...) The farm is located in an isolated area where many paths lead to the nearby mountains and the lake. You can walk, ride a bike: there are many sports available on the lake and in the surrounding area. From Salò there are buses to Brescia and Desenzano, where trains run frequently to major cities such as Verona, Venice and Milan. Nicola and I are musicians and often there is the opportunity to participate in our concerts. We have a room with bathroom in the farmhouse, ideal for a couple or two friends. We usually have breakfast, lunch and dinner together!

We are a small farm that raises animals, our stable is located in a very beautiful place in the mountains at 1000 meters altitude near the province of Trento, in the summer we are located in two different areas, one up at the hut in Valtellina at 2000 meters, while some of the animals remain where we live. We currently have two dairy cows, twenty goats and five highland cattle. Our family consists of me, my partner and two girls aged 8 and 6. For guests interested in the high hut in Valtellina, we can also offer the room, while those interested in the lower malga is preferable if they are equipped with a tent. The collaboration required of the guests is to care for grazing animals, make electric fences, help with milking machine cleaning and similar tasks.

During leisure time you can admire and visit the natural mountain landscapes.
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.

We are a Francesco "Ciccio" and Michela with our son Ernesto live on this farm in the heart of the Po Valley, a WWF oasis in the ‘Parco regionale Oglio’ on the flood plains of the Oligio river. Together with Davide we have been working this farm for 15 years when it was a traditional farm planted entirely with poplar. Since then we have turned the poplar plantations into mixed woodland, planted a small orchard with heirloom varieties (2010-2011) and made a vegetable garden for the use of the family and agritourism. The farm is certified organic since 2014. We raise chickens, geese, ducks and rabbits and we have 2 donkeys and 1 horse which we use for activities with children. Since 2009 we have produced honey. As we renovated the farm in 2005 we can now accommodate groups, schools, scouts, etc. and we are an educational farm and the WWF environmental education centre, and we manage the nature reserve. Jobs, depending on the season and needs of the farm may be: planting and pruning in the orchard, in the vegetable garden, with hospitality and education, pruning in the woods, harvesting and preserving produce from the vegetable garden, with the honey. Accommodation is in one (or more) rooms adjacent to our house.

Summer List
I tried to train myself trying to try different unconventional cultivation methods. My approach is basically to start from the traditional agricultural practices of these areas, readjusting them experimenting and following a few fundamental technical principles (however, always in review and review): minimal processing and constant coverage of the soil; minimal or no irrigation; I do almost everything by hand, for a few things I use a rotary cultivator; I do not use industrial chemicals. I grow vegetables and in particular beans, pumpkins and potatoes, but also some cereals. I'm a hobbyist beekeeper. I started in 2017 to take the first steps in the world of agriculture, now I cultivate almost half a hectare and the farm is in constant evolution: (re) start, discover, experiment, make mistakes, learn, sweat. I am 27 years old, I really enjoy being in company with others, sharing my daily life with my guests. I live in the mountains of the Camonica Valley which is full of trails, routes and climbing walls. My house is just outside the town centre in a house with a garden, with a beautiful view. The town has about 4500 inhabitants, so there is every service and several opportunities to pass the time. My 4 fields are scattered here and there, between 1 and 10 km from home, between 700 and 1100 m s.l.m. Cultivating the land and living according to the rhythms of my natural context is something that gives me joy and to which I attach great value. Doing agriculture means responding to a primary need: eating healthy food, therefore good. Agriculture means weaving relationships and at the same time directly co-responsible for the natural system in which we live, so I take what I do with very serious joy.
