This farm is situated 500 m from the centre of the village of Ternengo (population of 300) in the province of Biella in the hills and woods. We are a friendly family and are very open to share the work on the farm with people who are open to living new experiences. We prefer young not Italians to give us a chance to practice speaking other languages and to learn about other cultures.My husband, Maurizio and I, Piera, are both retired and we have two sibling, Enrico born in 1986 and Beatrice, born in 1990. We all speak fluent English, French, German and Spanish. We have several animals (sheep, goats, donkeys, horses, chickens, 2 dogs, 4 cats). We also have a vegetable garden for  the family.

I am Mirai, a 42 year old Italian-Japanese, I run a small family farm of 1.5 has, where I grow certified organic vegetables and soft fruit within a "eco-village" of 20 people, located on the Novara hills between the Valsesia and lakes and bordering a nature reserve. My brother Yukai (34), his girlfriend Raffaella (34) and an old friend, Renzo (73) run the farm with me. After many years of sustainable agriculture experiments for the self-consumption of the community for 3 years we have produced and sold our produce from the farm and at the market and also make preserves. We can host for periods of at least 15 days from the beginning of June to end of August in a caravan (possibly to be shared with another wwoofer) with access to shower and toilet in an adjacent building. The meals, vegetarian and made using our products, will be shared with myself, Yukai, Raffaella and the little Ryo (3) & Akira (0) & our dog Aria .. The activities we need help with are harvesting berries and vegetables, preparation for sale (cleaning, packaging), transplanting and sowing, hand weeding, mulching. You can also help us in the labeling of juices and compotes, come with us to the market, or share the preparation of our meals and management of the house or play with Ryo. We do not breed animals, but within the community there are dogs, cats, horses, bees and to avoid problems other animals are not permitted. Occasionally, as an ecovillage, we host cultural events with people from outside. The nearest village is 1km away, the Railway station 8km: Public connections are sketchy, but we can lend you our bikes. Preferably non-smokers, Wi-Fi available.

Our small family run farm is located in Vignale Monferrato, in the countryside of the beautiful UNESCO heritage. We are an Italo / Spanish family who decided to return to live in the countryside to allow our four children to live immersed in nature.In 2017 we started a snail farm, in 2018 will start a new initiative of horticultural gardens that we will manage in a natural way respecting the specifications included in organic farming. We have an orchard and breed goats, sheep and poultry for family self-consumption. We transform our products trying to preserve the traditions of our cultures. WWOOFers will be involved in all activities and will be hosted in a separate room with bathroom. Languages spoken: Spanish and English
We are a group of 30 people living on 100 ha of land which we care for in a natural and organic way: we are trying for sustainable negative growth (decrescita) in a realistic and non fanatical way. We raise pigs, beef cattle, farmyard animals, a small vegetable garden and an orchard for home consumption, grain, hay, especially alfalfa and 20 ha of vineyard. The idea is to do jobs by hand and to use as few machines a possible. The tasks are mainly in the vineyard, the cellar, the orchard, vegetable garden, cleaning in the fields (from March to October). During the winter (from October to March) you can also work in the slaughterhouse, there is maintenance of buildings and wood cutting in the forest, the small dairy or in the restaurant. Accommodation by prior agreement in the campsite. The meals are organic using our own produce. We ask you to be collaborative and positive and to adapt to the jobs you are asked to do. You also need to entertain yourselves in the evenings as the members of the cooperative go home to their families at that time. We are reachable by train at Tortona and then bus or we will come and collect you. English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish spoken.

We are restoring and bringing life back to an ancient hamlet (at an altitude of 1400 m) which has been abandoned for several decades. Here, after the recovery of the environment and the renovation of the buildings, we want to start running farm courses focused on getting closer to nature and on the development and improvement of psycho-physical and spiritual health, as well as activities for children and teenagers.This typical mountain environment is connected only by a dirt road and to enjoy peace and serenity in a country which is almost entirely covered in concrete, you can find it only in places such as this. There are three of us working on this project, two more actively involved, A. (born 1951) and S. with her family (husband and two children). We live a few miles from the old hamlet and live there only at certain times of the year. We are currently rejuvenating meadows, fields, pastures, forests of a property which covers an area of about 150 hectares. We have started to replant the crops typical to this area and replant many species of indigenous plants with particular regard to rare species and herbs. We offer basic accommodation in dry stone huts, or tents, but giving you the opportunity to live in the midst of nature, eat and drink healthy food (also for vegetarians), learn to know and use herbs and wild edible fruits of which we are great experts: you must therefore have an interest in these activities and be very adaptable.We can accommodate people from May to September and you can collaborate in any of the above mentioned activities in a friendly atmosphere: we speak English, French, a little German and Spanish.

I cultivate and sell vegetables produced with organic regenerative agriculture in southern Piedmont (in Serravalle Scrivia, where the Apennines begin). The farm is very new and I need help (and comparison) to build and improve in cultivation and sales. I used to work in large-scale distribution. I am 48 years old and live with my wife (Sara, 42, teaches mathematics) and our 3 children (14, 12 and 7 years old) in an apartment; the garden (about 7000 square meters) is located a few kilometers from the house, in the Gavi hills; my sister Daniela (46) collaborates with me, and lives right next to us and we use her apartment for WWOOFers (a dedicated room and shared bathroom, kitchen and living room). We would like to host WWOOFers who can stay with us for a couple of weeks or so.  We really like traveling to learn about different customs and habits and we have decided to try also to "travel from home" by hosting other people. Serravalle (about 6000 inhabitants, located in the center of the triangle Milan, Turin and Genoa) you can to reach these cities by public transport and to learn about the landscapes and traditions of our rural culture, at the foot of the Apennines. The period in which we would like to host is from June to October. We speak English and a little French, but it would be fun to try to communicate with different languages ​​too.

The drive to integrate the benefits of urban life with the desire to go back to our origins has given life to the idea of ​​an innovative educational farm: R.A.M. Roots in Moncalieri. We are a group of 6 (2 brothers and 4 friends) who have decided to share their passions, knowledge and dreams together. Everyone has their own duties. We live in a beautiful farmhouse in the Moncalierese hills, immersed in the greenery of the 'Collina Po' park, a UNESCO World Heritage site 15 minutes from Turin. We have a Brewery and Educational Farm. The farm is of 15 hectares: 2 horticultural crops, 1 barley, ½ hops, 1 Italian heirloom fruit orchard and the rest is wood. We have goats and sheep and make cheese, a henhouse, 30 hives with which we produce honey and derivatives, a small fish farm of carp and an Agricultural Brewery, BAM (we produce 100% of raw materials). We grow vegetables in and out of the soil (hydroponics and aquaponics). All resources, as well as waste, are reused in an integration cycle that minimizes environmental impact and maximizes production and benefits for the community. We are inspired by the principles of biodynamics and permaculture both in agriculture and in everyday life. We are founding members of the "Diramarsi" cultural association that promotes cultural and artistic events linked to sustainability on the farm. Depending on the season or availability, we offer a room with a shared bathroom or a tent in the garden in front of the house. Meals are shared together using all our own produce. We will choose together with our guests, according to their passions and skills, the most appropriate activities to do. We like to teach but also to learn.

My agricultural activity, which I prefer not to call a farm, is located in Exilles in the upper Susa valley at about 900 meters above sea level on the south-facing slope. I have been living here for 20 years cultivating family lands and many others with organic farming techniques that are often equivalent to those of old mountain dwellers. The working year is divided according to the seasons: in winter rest, planning and work in the woods; in spring, land preparation, machinery overhaul and first sowing; during the summer vegetable cultivation: transplanting, manual weeding, irrigation and hay harvesting; finally, in autumn, collected and direct sales of products with home deliveries and local markets / fairs. Chestnuts, potatoes and pumpkins are the main productions which are accompanied by autumn vegetables (cabbage, leeks, turnips etc ...); and small plots of ancient cereals for self-consumption or a little more. I would like to share this journey with those who will be pleased to learn about my experience and the area of ​​Val di Susa. The best moments are summer and autumn. Furthermore coming here you can come into contact with the history and experiences of the NO TAV Movement, protagonist of a thirty-year struggle against the obstruction of a highly impacting infrastructure with the territory. The small town where I live also offers the possibility of relationships with other friends through the activities of a lively cultural association to which I belong. The train station is not far away and can also be reached on foot. I speak a little French, English and Spanish.
Earth, water, rock, wood, close people with whom to share moments of life. This, in 2011, led me to live on this mountain. Since 2015 I am Nehir's father. We are custodians of about five hectares between meadow and forest;I grow vegetables, fruit, legumes and corn for subsistence; we heat the house and the water with a wood stove; we work with always manual tools, without an engine. By choice and pleasure we light up with oil lamps and we do not use electricity or gas. Our village, at 1000 m asl, is between woods and streams, with good spring water, It is about an hour's walk from the bus station in the village (or 15 minutes by car). We eat mainly self-produced food, cooked in a genuine way. I adore: the simple and essential life in contact with the earth, raising my child and evolving in the relationship with other human beings. I would like to share our lifestyle, knowledge and projects with people who bring us other "worlds". We can accommodate in a room or a tent if you prefer throughout the year, for long or short periods, just specify the days when you would like to be accommodated. From our house there are paths for beautiful walks even at high altitude, ideal for those who love the mountains. I speak English, vegans, children and dogs respectful of other farmyard and wild animals are welcome. I hope that there is someone who would like to write to me by letter, I always answer very willingly! Or make a surprise visit here, in mutual acceptance and respect.
