This 4 ha farm is situated at an altitude of 800m facing the Dolomites. We, Isabella and Eugenio, have a B & B for people who enjoy the peace and quiet of this area, and cultivate vegetables and Lamon IGP e Gialet beans (Slow Food), potatoes, squash and apples using organic methods (certified ICEA). Help needed with preparing the land and seeding in April, May and June, with transplanting, harvesting and organic treatments from July to October, with selling our produce to people who come to the farm and with collecting firewood which we use to heat the house in the winter. The chickens, rabbits and other animals need to be cared for, the plants need watering and the areas kept in order. We are vegetarians and prefer people to smoke outside. We collaborate with a network of other farms "Dolomiti Bio" and an old dairy. We speak English and Spanish and a little French. Accommodation in a comfortable loft or a caravan, meals are eaten together. There are mountain bikes you can use. We collaborate with other WWOOF farms in the area.
This farm is located on the hill above the town of Santa Maria in Stelle. In this ancient rural court live two families, two dogs and two cats. The main productions are Valpolicella wine grapes, olive oil and vegetables grown in the fields. The total area of the holding is 6.94 hectares, of which 1.8 Ha are planted with vines for wine, olives 0.35, 0.15 for the vegetables, the rest is forest. The farm has been certified organic since 2000, is run part-time by myself, an agronomist consultant for organic farming throughout Italy. My partner is the director of a technical school. One of our sons, born in 1987, works in agricultural development projects in Africa, the other (1991) studies food technology in Padua. WWOOFers live in the house and share the family's life and work in the fields. We like to eat good, genuine food with little meat but we are not vegetarians. We are passionate about baking bread, making salami and preserving fruit and vegetables for our own use. We also have 5 beehives. This year, my oldest son has opened a new organic viticulture farm, taking over an old vineyard with a rustic annex of the seventeenth century. For those interested, there might be a chance to help him.
This farm is situated at an altitude of 450m in the foothills of Monte Baldo. There are about 3 has of woodland and a stone house where we create, design and cook with Dormice for company! We have a breeze from and panorama of Lake Garda which is 5 kms from the farm. We hope to achieve self sufficiency following the principles of Permaculture. We are at the beginning of the adventure, and are making swales and clearing paths, clearing the forest and mulching, building a tool shed, cleaning up the terraces to rejuvenate the olive grove, cultivating irises and preparing the vegetable garden. The stone house in need of care, but resources are scarce, and we need human help! My son goes to university and loves to travel, so I do not always have his valuable contribution and sharing experiences with travellers becomes not only a pleasure, but also a necessity. The accommodation is very basic and suitable for those who have experience of camping. We hope to make systems for collecting rainwater and for energy production. We use oil lamps and a photovoltaic panel which generates enough electricity only to listen to music and charge your cell phone. Prefer to accommodate a couple of people because the place, which is accessible along a path of about 1.2 km, is isolated. We speak a little school level English.
