Modena

We have run this farm, agritourism and restaurant for 8 years. We chose to live a life in contact with nature and the rhythms of nature, also because cooking is my greatest passion. We have 8 has of land where we cultivate soft fruit, from which we make jams, pastries and also eat fresh in the restaurant. Saffron which we work in in March, re-plant in July and harvest in October, fruit trees which are harvested during the summer and early fall, and we then make the fruit into into cakes, juice and jams. We have a lot of lavender from which we get dried flowers and essential oil, it is harvested and dried in July. We have a garden with vegetables for ourselves and our restaurant and 2 labrador dogs, Sale and Pepe and 2 cats, Chilly and Ginger. Last but not least are our chickens who give us fresh eggs every morning. The house has 4 bedrooms and a small restaurant where we host people who love nature, relaxation, good food, wine and the peaceful surroundings. We have gardens around the house and some woodland that needs maintaining. In spring and autumn we organize 5 day cookery courses in Danish and English for groups. The farm is run by myself and my partner. We welcome people who want to take part in our life, and all aspects of our day from the kitchen garden to the animals, maybe also at the same time learning & teaching something. We prefer hosting couples. Own room with private bathroom in our house, we always eat vegan friendly meals together and look forward to meeting you. We speak Danish, English and German.

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.

Ciao, we are Lorenzo (35) and Barbara (40), Miriam (8) and Iris (4), living in the hills of the altitude of 600, surrounded by wild woods rich in biodiversity. We live 1 hour away from Modena, and 50 minutes from Bologna by car. From our house, you can overlook the beautiful landscape of the Appennini. There are some hiking trails nearby if you are into hiking. Ten years ago after finishing studying as herbalists, we started to work with herbs. Through Nature's teaching we try to place cultivation in harmony with the landscape around, taking inspiration from natural farming advice, from ecological gardening and from the principles of permaculture. We also try to create an orchard of medicinal plants and useful herbs. We harvest wild herbs and also cultivate some. We make herb remedies, drinks (tea, juice, beer), jam, vegetable preserves that we bring weekly to local organic markets in Bologna to sell. There are some cats and chickens with us. We cook and eat with wwoofers everyday, using vegetables from our garden, also making pizza, bread, and yogurt. We are not vegetarians but we eat very little meat. If you enjoy cooking, we welcome you to share with us your cooking from your culture and the knowledge of your tradition. Help needed in particular in Autumn, Spring and Summer. Jobs include attending the vegetable garden, harvesting wild herbs, helping preserving herbs, preparing for the market...etc. We have two rooms and a caravan for wwoofers. Minimum stay is one week. Wwoofers have one day off during a week. To get here, you can take a train from Bologna to Bazzano where we can pick you up at the train station.

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.
