    Description

    We own a small organic farm located in southern Tuscany overlooking a beautiful valley located on the slopes of Monte Amiata, between the medieval towns of Castel del Piano and Seggiano.

    We'll need two volunteers in midle September until end of october for preparing and do the chesnuts harvest, so please write us if you think can be ok for you come to us during these dates, thank you!!!

    The landscape has the peculiarity of a typical natural forest and the diversified productivity typical of organic farms.

    The estate is spread over three acres of chestnut trees, IGP marroniAmiata, a precious olive variety of DOP Olivastra Seggianese and cherry trees over a hundred years old.

    A rich variety of fruit trees, medicinal plants, a biodynamic garden, chestnut flour, extra virgin olive oil, natural soaps, delicious teas and jams complete the range of organic products produced on our farm.
