    Hi everybody, we are a young family of three: Elisa (31), Riccardo (36) and Alma (1 and a half). There are also Ciarlina and Ciarla, the two cats. We live in the highlands of Oltrepò Pavese, near Varzi, on the the Way of Salt to Liguria.
    In the last three years we were engaged in building our strawbales house, growing vegetables and fruits, and making a small production of wine and jams.
    Now we have to finish the house building a green-house and we have to complete the laboratory for the fruits transformation. From these year we want also start thinking for a plant nursery and the production of berries.
    Elisa does smart-working as editor for a children publishing house and she is involved in a project of outdoor education for children "Boscovillaggio", with other families of the valley.
    Riccardo now is engaged at 100% in the construction of the house but he is a good guitar player!
    Alma is busy all the day exploring the world around...

    We get the water from a spring on our farm. This spring is not so plenty, so it's very very important to use water knowingly!
    We are vegetarian (occasionally Elisa eat fish).
    Of course, we offer 3 meals a day!

    The highlands we live in is very beautiful, rich of forests and paths to explore. In the summer we can go to have a bath in the fresh river Trebbia near by. Instead, if you want to visit cities, Milan and Genoa are quite simple to reach.
    Riccardo can offer guitar and music lessons, and he can teach how to make bread with with natural yeast. He's trying to apply biointensive method in our garden.
    We try to follow macrobiotic principles in cooking, so we can share our knowledge about it.
    We are studying about alternative ways of growing up foods, and also of growing up children! so... we have a quite equipped bookcase on these topics.
