  • Description

    Description

    We are an organic farm in the picturesque area of Le Marche Italy. We generally produce pasta wheat, sunflower seeds, olive oil and grapes for juice. The farm is 15 mins to the seaside and 35mins to the mountains. Before farming I worked in the music world touring bands, I still do a bit now and then.

    Help

    In the winter months we start pruning the vines and olive trees. This year we hope to demolish a section of our vineyard as it has become to old to cultivate and replant a new one. There is also a vegetable garden to regenerate. As you would expect these are weather dependent activities but you will be surrounded by beautiful countryside. Other than that general small scale farming which can be varied but generally not too strenuous (the tractor does that!) More a case of keeping it tidy and productive
