Hi, I am opening an alternative, non commercial, minimalist,old school ,self sustaining, organic farm in Dorzano, northern italy, from march, 2019 If you are interested in an new experience , an off grid lifestyle.fresh veggies from the orchard chickens and eggs, from the yard.
no chemicals or fertilizers are used, only fully organic compost which is made by the resident chickens.
we use well water and our own harvested wood for water and ambient heating. for 9 months of the year we also use a wood burning "potage'" for cooking.
during summer, helpers that wish to de toxify , are welcomed to partake in the juicing diet, using our organically grown veggies.

There are a couple of bicycles that the volunteers are welcomed to use
