    Learn about italian farming, craftmanship and mostly about cooking!

  • Help


    Help is needed in two main sectors : house renovations and agriculture. We are renovating old houses from the 18th century and cleaning the abandoned fields to farm the food we need.
    Timber harvesting is a big activity, we try to harvest the timber we need for the renovations locally and we have a sawmill to process it.
    Based on your skills and your willingness to learn we will find the position that suits you best.
    We also have woodworking and blacksmithing shops, help is not needed but fun is guaranteed!
