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.
We are primarily a Spiritual Community. We are about 30 people working in different sectors. The existential quest is the most important factor. We are open to a discussion of sharing but we are also aware that there is a True collaboration. If you come here you should not come looking for a holiday but for an opportunity for interior growth. Our lifestyle is KARMA YOGA, the path of action. We own 16 acres of land and we have an organic and biodynamic vegetable garden. We attend several farmers' markets. In the spring we host schools for which you may be engaged in workshops on bread making, clay, painting. We have a mini zoo, organize classes on yoga, relaxation, concentration and insight. Amongst your duties we ask for help with cooking and housekeeping. In your spare time you can choose from: relaxing, reading, meditation, hiking. Contact us by describing sincerely your goals in order to avoid unpleasant situations whilst you are here. We would appreciate a photo and a description of yourself that allows us to see certain characteristics of your personality. You should be able to speak some Italian. A smile. Aghni, the founder.
We are a young couple with 2 children. Our paradise is located in the hills of Modena about ten kms from Montese. We live in a house with 5 has of land, have a vegetable garden for ourselves, firewood, hay and grain for our animals (donkey, cows, pigs and goats). We produce sausages, and we are also planning to make cheese. Possible jobs: gardening, cutting wood, horticulture, maintaining fences and caring for the animals. We host throughout the year as needed, hospitality is in a caravan (max 2 people), mostly organic food. Unfortunately we only speak Italian, but are happy to accommodate people of all nationalities.
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.
