I run a small farm in the south of Italy, the place is an archeological site, Telesia , city of Sanniti first and Romans after...there are many sites to be visited around and the village is very close, small and cute. The train station is in the nearest village Telese and it's easy to plan a trip to Benevento, Caserta or Naples. I live with my son (16) and we both speak english and a bit of spanish. We self produce many vegetables, fruits, wine, flour and we make, weekly, bread. We have chickens and hens. I am already host other volunteers. We work usually in the garden weeding, watering and planting vegetables and we prune our fruits plants. The house has been built from my grandfather and needs some work now and then. We usually work together in the house keeping it clean. We harvest our product and time by time we make preserves. In fall we harvest grape and make wine and we harvest olives to make our olive oil. We go to markets to sell our products making extra bread and cooking the day before.

Working in the farm gives special knoledge to independence about selfproducing food in a special environment where everything is produced in organic way with a big rispect for the earth. The soil is fantastic, I make my compost which i use for plants and seeds. Permaculture is the method of cultivation. We will be giving italian lesson if asked and teaching how to make bread, pizza and fresh pasta. I have a nice studio with lots of books in different languages and the house has wifi.
help needed in the garden and in the house. Every skill is really appreciated but not required. It's fantastic that running a farm does not need more than some day by day work.
There are 2 rooms with 4 beds and 1 bathroom in the house only for guests.
The area is fantastic....a valley surrounded by beautiful hills and mountain, local monuments, ancient ruines, even a Roman Anphiteather, and villages may deserve a visit. Ther'is a beautiful national park on a river where to walk . By train or by bus the nearest cities can be easily visited . In Telese ther'is a lac where to swim and a Spa.
