This is my farming project in the heart of Sicily. I'm developing the family existing land into a modern agricultural business. I have planted a new olive grove, both for producing extra virgin olive oil and table olives, as well as continuing to grow wheat and dedicating an area of land to the growth of seasonable vegetables, such as tomatoes, zucchinis, aubergines etc.
I have also renovated the farm building to have a laboratory to transform, produce and stock final products, such as tomato passata and sauces, jams and preserves, extra virgin olive oil, olives.
For the summer 2019 I'm looking for workawayers who can help me in the agri-food laboratory and with the tomato harvest. Moreover, I am also looking for someone with web design experience specifically in E-Commerce.

They will receive accommodation and meals. They will learn about farming. I also make wine so in season they can also learn about making wine. They will meet other Sicilian farmers and visit their farms too. They will pick up some Italian as well as Sicilian language. From Lercara Friddi they can easily take a Bus trip to either Palermo or Agrigento to visit these beautiful cities.
