    Description

    Ciao! I am Filippo, I live in this farm from 20 years, located at 500m altitude on Monte Giovi, near Florence. I built everything with the wood from the forest and with natural methods. In the farm lives also Sergio that helps with the farm activities. We are isolate inside the forest, all around nature and animanls. 20 minuts driving from the nearest trainstation, Scopeti. We need help all the year in different sort of works, and the works change in the differts seasons. We are an organic farm. We have 5 goats and we make goatcheese from spring to autumn; 2 donkeys, 10 chickens, 2 dogs, 8 cats; a big vegetable garden where we grow our food and we try to be self-subsistent; an olive field and a vineyard, for make our extra-vergine olive oil and wine. We are simple people and hard workers, marble sculptors, artisans, musicians.
