Area: MarcheWe are a Dutch family running a small organic farm at Rotella, close to the beautiful city of Ascoli Piceno in the Marches. The crops we commercially grow are saffron, carrots and raspberries. This spring we are elaborating on raspberries and other Forrest fruits. We have 2 children, Mels (a 6-year old chap) and Filippa (a 3-year old lady). Their dad, Caspar, enjoys working in the field but he also loves cooking (a.o. with saffron! and is sometimes asked as a chef for events, groups or workshops cooking with saffron) next to that he also loves to re structure the farm with things that are already there. Their mum, Anne, also loves to work on the land, enjoys cooking vegetarian meals and she teaches yoga locally and organizes yoga holidays. Lots of things going on where a helping hand is more than welcome! Siamo una famiglia olandese e, da quasi quattro anni abbiamo una azienda agricola biologico. Abitiamo nelle Marche, a Rotella (pochi kilometri di Ascoli Piceno) e coltiviamo per vendere lo zafferano, le carote e i lamponi. Questo primavera elargiamo con i lamponi e altre frutti di bosco. Ci sono due bimbi, un ragazzino (si chiama Mels) che ha 6 anni e la piu piccola della famiglia ha 3 anni (si chiama Filippa). I loro genitori si chiamano Anne e Caspar.
Area: ThuringiaWe are a young married couple. Sarah is 24 and Timo 33 years old. We live in an old and kind of crazy house in Erfurt-Möbisburg, which is 15 minutes by bus from Erfurt City Center. With us lives also our 5-year old dog mix called Sturmi. Our house has a small garden, which we want to make a bit nicer in the future. Although Möbisburg is so close to Erfurt it has a beautiful scenery and a lot of nature. We enjoy being outdoor and have fun with our dog and our small mini-pony Egon just somewhere in the forest or in the fields. While staying with us you can explore Thuringian cities (there are a couple of cheap train connections), explore the nature in Möbisburg itself, go hiking with us and the pets or just relax and fill up your batteries.

We live near vibrant cities and great sandy surf beaches. We have an easy going attitude. The sympathetic restoration of our house is taking time and using traditional skills. This year we are aiming to get alot of work done on our house. Last year we hosted 16 Workawayers and got alot of quality work done. So if your strong, don't mind roughing it and getting your hands dirty, get in touch. We also prefer people to stay a minimum of 3wks. Longer is even better.
