We are a biodynamic farm of 26 hectares in Piedmont 1 km from a village of 300 inhabitants, Tassarolo, 6 km from Novi Ligure. We grow mainly vines from which we make 8 different wines, some without sulfites. We work some vineyards, the forest and the garden with three French Comtois horses. We also run courses on agricultural work with horses. We have just started a sustainable self-sufficient project on production of vegetables using animal traction. We are inspired by the agricultural practice of Rudolf Steiner on which we hold a study groups and we have contributed to the founding of a Waldorf school nearby. Our philosophy is "GOOD, CLEAN AND RIGHT". We love and respect all animals, including insects.A few rules: 1. respect the children, try to be a good example for them; 2. respect animals; 3. cigarette smoking only outdoors or indoors only with others who smoke. No use of soft drugs during the entire stay both at leisure and at work. We do not accept people who in their private lives use drugs or drink alcohol in large quantities. 4. alcohol you drink at mealtimes in moderation and not during working hours. As we love animals, we limit as much as possible the consumption of animal protein. Positive people who want to contribute to a positive change in the reality of our society are welcomeVisit our web site!
We are a couple who run a small Bed and Breakfast, situated at 1,100 m, in the woods of the Cozie Alps. We are 6 km up from town and about 50 km from Turin city centre. We have recently taken over the nurturing of the family’s two large organic vegetable gardens from F’s parents who live next to us. We also maintain small herb plots, flower boxes, and the grounds around our building. We need help with all aspects of gardening and grounds maintenance. Depending on the season there are always various types of work to be done from woodcutting and building projects to hiking trail and building maintenance. During our busy periods, we may teach cooking classes, which you can participate in, if you are interested and we can always use a hand with the dishes. Accommodation is a large loft with 2 twin beds in our main building, which has high-speed Internet connection and your own private bathroom nearby. Walking and mountain biking tracks are accessible from our doorstep. We can accept one WWOOFer, from April through November, preferable for a minimum of 3 weeks. We may consider 2 wWWOOFers July through September. Meals are eaten together and made with love from scratch. We are native tongue English and Italian speakers. F. also speaks French.
In the heart of the Valle Grana, one of the 14 alpine enclaves which uses the Occitan language, we aim to practice agriculture and use old peasant farming traditions. The main activities are the breeding of Piedmontese cattle, the cultivation of vegetables, hay, work in the forests and the processing of the wood needed for winter heating. The family run farm, which consists of the stone house, barn and tool shed, have been renovated keeping the original features and is now our home. Surrounded by meadows, that produce fodder and vegetables, the barn and the hut house a couple of donkeys. The animals, from spring to late autumn graze outdoors. A minor part of the farm is located in the lower valley; other vegetables are grown here surrounded by a small orchard, chickens, rabbits and four goats. Most of the products grown are for our personal use or are made into preserves which we use in out 25 place restaurant. The goal is to breaking down as much as possible a chain that in the last half century has changed structurally farm life, with the conviction that it is from the earth that changes happen. A separate room in the house is available for guests who can help in the activities related to the different seasons and with baking. French is our second language, with English we try to get by.
