This is a permaculture project which was born in 2012 and is also a holistic and reception center in the making. It is also a farm, but currently without income because it is early days and also due to other priorities. We are located in a wonderful place with great energy 1000 meters above sea level, bordering wild areas, surrounded by forests, meadows and streams in a stone farmhouse renovated using green building criteria. The nearest town is about 5 km and we are 15 km Biella. I live together with my husband, who works as a teacher, and our son who was born in 2002. Our mission is to create a small paradise or oasis and make it accessible to a permanent community. Currently our main attentions go to the regeneration of the soil and planting fruit trees and shrubs to form, over time, an edible forest. We'd like to accommodate people who want to dream with us and to make small steps in this great journey. We can accommodate 2 people in a separate room which has been lovingly decorated by hand, or in an apartment when it is not occupied by other guests. In good weather we can also offer accommodation in a tent. We prefer that our guests stay with us for a longer periods. We would like to receive help both for routine activities and for the many exciting projects that we are initiating. We love to cook and eat well, with meals mainly vegetarian using mostly organic products (partially self-produced in season). We are also a centre for seminars and courses and we host people coming from Italy and abroad. I am a professor of facilitation techniques, permaculture and deep ecology.
This farm is located on a beautiful plain in Canavese, about 20 km north of Turin and 15 km south of Ivrea. We are a group of about twenty adults and eight children that live in an old farmhouse renovated using green building techniques. Some of us are directly involved in running the farm, others have different activities. Our group is part of the D., Federation of Communities’ which was founded in 1975, which is experimenting with a social model based on ethical and spiritual values ​expressed through work and art. We rear 100 cattle and produce all the grains needed for their maintenance, as well as for ourselves. We have vegetable gardens and greenhouses for the cultivation of organic vegetables, a small chicken coop and, seasonally, some pigs. We also run a restaurant, as part of our Agritourism project, by reservation only. Accommodation in single or double rooms, in a prefabricated wooden house near the barn. Some of us speak English, some speak French, Spanish and others German. WWOOFers can help mainly in the vegetables garden and vineyard. We can accommodate you between March and October. Help is also needed in the animal stalls and in the house. We cultivate several vineyards and everyone helps with the grape harvest in autumn. Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the farm.

Small family run farm in the Lange run by P., S, A. (2001), N. (2003) and grandmother F.(1930). We grow maize, barley, hay, Lucerne (in rotation), hazelnuts, have a vineyard, fruit trees (apples, pears, peaches, apricots and plums) and soft fruit. We also have bees (with a workshop to extract and bottle the honey), farmyard animals, chickens, geese, ducks, and guinea fowl. Dogs, cats and small goats. We have 3 rooms in the B & B and 30 seat restaurant. Our house is surrounded by a small lawn and a flower garden. The jobs are very varied and not repetitive, the most interesting and important for us being with the bees and in the vineyard. Sometimes we participate at markets to sell our produce. We are not vegetarian but respect the reasons that people are. We do not speak many languages but have travelled a lot and learnt that with patience and the use of gestures we can make ourselves understood. We speak a little French, English and Spanish. We are happy to teach you what we know as when you teach you also learn.

Our farm is located on the slopes of Montebracco in Barge (CN). We are in the Infernotto Valley a few steps from the Monviso and from the source of the river Po. We have a mixed farm with 140 milk goats and a cultivation of herbs. We transform milk in our dairy and produce raw milk cheese. We have a family garden. Our commitment for the future is to make our farm as multi-functional as possible. In the season from mid-June to the end of September we go up to the mountain pasture of Montebracco. The mountain pasture has a special charm because from the top you can see all the surrounding valleys and the surrounding villages including a magnificent view of Monviso. We are a young family with 4 children. We speak some English, French and German. We host in tents or caravans. We like to share our life with sunny people who love nature and with a spirit of adaptation to the environment. We have no prejudices about orientations and lifestyles that are not obsessions. We are happy to start this new adventure, see you soon.

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.

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.

Our farm is a small wine producing business in Dogliani, in the heart of the Piedmontese Langhe, an area famous all over the the world for the richness and quality of its wines. We have a small production (about 10-12 thousand bottles a year) and are attentive to traditions and respect for nature, therefore offering genuine and quality wines, in particular three different types of Dogliani Docg (a different wine from each vineyard) and we also carry out some original experiments with our wine making.. Lucia and Silvio work with love, passion and energy: "We aim at quality and not quantity, and we base our philosophy on the protection of the vineyard, its health and, consequently, on the production of natural and healthy wines which in ten years has brought many appreciations and awards". The quality of our products is largely the result of a natural choice of life: We believe in the balance between tradition and innovation, and we are convinced that to obtain a quality wine, fully respecting nature and health, we must work mainly in the vineyard, intervening the minimum necessary in the cellar. This, in our opinion, allows us to recognize the original and unique peculiarities not only of the different vineyards, but also of the individual different vines which is therefore reflected in the characteristics of the wines. In the vineyard and in the cellar cleanliness and attention reign, but also research and comparison. To pass on our experience and to learn different techniques. We provide our knowledge and are ready to confront methods and philosophies different than our own. We are happy to share moments of work, learning, but also taste, conviviality and relaxation with new friends who come to visit us on the farm.

Ours is a collective agricultural project, family-run (we are two couples, about 30 years old), a village abandoned for half a century in stone located in the upper Borbera Valley, valley with extraordinary natural features, wild and severe. It is located on a plateau, sheltered from the north winds and strongly exposed to the sun. We practice slow, silent and subtle agriculture and produce high quality food using heirloom and organic seeds. In addition to the production of vegetables and wheat we have recovered several small abandoned vineyards and we are planting new vineyards. Our wine is a testimony to us, a story to cling to, a beautiful song that combines a good rhythm with a deep and moving text but also a revenge of a small part of the peasant world. At the moment we have the possibility to accommodate max 4 WWOOFers at a time (at least one with a driving license!) from February to November, the accommodation is a small detached house in a mountain stone village about 8 km from the farmhouse; during the summer period for those who want it there is also the possibility of camping in tents in comfortable grounds near the farmhouse. We give guests the opportunity to learn notions of natural agriculture (vegetable garden and vineyard), home-made bread and small craft works. Languages ​​spoken: Genoese and English. In the age of technology and industry, our farmhouse moves backwards, convinced that in some cases "going back" is today a cutting edge practice.

We're Mirko and Viola and together we run our farm with a B&B and agriturismo. We are in Cossato in the Biella district, on the border with the Natural Park of Baraggia in the north of Piemonte. Our main activity is natural farming inspired by permaculture (a nice mix of many natural methods). We have a small garden and orchard and we run an agritourism where we host people for bed and breakfast. Besides, we have some chickens, retired horses and donkeys. We both work full time on the farm. We would like to involve travelers in all the work that we do on the farm, jobs will depend very much on the season in which you come, in the summer you can harvest and make preserves, in autumn prune and prepare for winter, in winter make order and prepare for spring and in spring planting, preparing the soil and so on. We would love it if you leave some fruit of your talent, interest or capability on the farm when you leave. The accommodation which we offer you will be in a room in our farmhouse. We take people all year round. We speak English, French, Spanish. The spirit with which we face every day is to have fun and learn as much as possible. Biella is a paradise forgotten by man, and that's why, almost in its totality, it is still a place where nature is untouched, and where there is original and unique craftsmanship, we like very much to show you these things as it gives us an excuse to go to find them again. We are two young people who have just started this adventure, your talents and your skills can really influence it from its beginning.
