Région: AlaskaWe have a family operated oyster farm and live on an island homestead in Southeast Alaska. We are a couple in our late 40's with two children 15 and 10, and also an assistant farm manager (oyster nurseryman). Our son is on a year exchange to Germany. We like to travel and our farm hand travels the world in his off months. It is very isolated here with no shops, and only a few other people. There are lots of opportunities to enjoy pristine Southeast Alaskan views. We travel to town with our boat, skiff, or by plane on the average of once every two weeks. We have two cats, one dog, and 6 ducks. We try to eat as much home grown or harvested food as we can, though we get bulk staples twice a year.

Région: SardiniaIn 1977 I inherited and have run this traditional bee farm which was started in 1917 by my maternal grandmother who introduced moveable beehives (one of the first to do so in Sardegna). I have three apiaries in the countryside and the wildflowers and rare endemic plants of this area make it an ideal place to keep bees. The area of Monte Arci, near the west coast of Sardinia, is of the highest quality environmentally and historically. It is part of Parco Geominerario della Sardegna and is poised to become the first natural park on the island. As an environmentally friendly activity our beekeeping is of the highest standard. I work the hives and farm organically (certified) and my ‘Mieleria’, powered by a photovoltaic system is built in the traditional clay bricks used in Sardinia. In addition to the bees, we have, distributed in several plots around the farm, an orchard consisting mainly of olive, apple, almond and pear trees.
