Our family Peter(Sudtyroler) Ana(Canadian)and our youngest daughter Natty now live in the Italian Alps, on a small farm at 1600m on the dolomite mountain range with 6 cows, a dog and 2 cats. We previously worked for a NGO in Africa/Tanzania and have had many years experience working with volunteers. We really enjoy meeting people from all the corners of the world. Unfortunately Peter was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis , so is unable to keep with all farm chores. Although we do have many relatives willing to help us, we enjoy meeting people. Our youngest daughter is intellectually disabled. She also enjoys company of others and happy to show you around our farm.
