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. Our workshops are aimed at schools and groups of families ranging from sensory pathways and experimental archeology . The meals were usually cooked and eaten together. You can also do your own cooking. Accommodation is in private rooms with a shared bathroom with our children . Shops, bars and post office are within 2 km, pizzeria and bank are located 6 km. About 30 minutes drive away there are cinemas, pubs and shops of all kinds. There is free wi-fi and use of computer. French and English spoken and some Spanish.
Our farm is in the province of Modena about 8 kms from Rocchetta di Guiglia. On our 5 ha farm we cultivate vegetables and fruit using organic methods. The jobs to do are planting, cultivating and harvesting produce and we also have some jobs to be done in the synergic vegetable garden and areas around the house. Accommodation is in our house, meals mainly vegetarian and organic, we speak a bit of Spanish. Help needed from April to November and length of stays are by arrangement. The area around us is hilly, good for walking and relaxing in, there is a nearby park, Rocca Malatina, which is well worth visiting, we are also near to Bologna and Modena.
I am a 60 year old shepherd and live in a remarkable agritourism on the crown of a hill. The house is large, there is a room for holding courses, 3 bedrooms, a restaurant and outside a vegetable garden and a large barn for my sheep. There are other people who work here such as the cook but generally I am here alone with my sheep. I need help with various tasks which vary according to the season: In autumn with the vegetable garden and wood cutting, in the winter with the wood and with jobs inside the house. From March to July with cheese making, and in the vegetable garden, from January to March with the lambing. We eat meals together, the area is very beautiful and it would be a good experience for anyone who is interested in learning how to make cheese and the life of a shepherd. I only speak Italian a but have friends and WWOOFers who speak English. I will do everything I can to make your stay comfortable but I am a shepherd who has lived alone for many years with my sheep and am a man of few words! I can however teach you a great deal. Minimum stay 3 weeks.
