  • Description


    We are Giulia (34) and Simone (35) and our little son Lucio (1)!
    We have an organic inside a bio-district near a small village (10 minutes by walk) in the mountain above Parma.
    Our farm is about 20 hectares of field and forest.
    From this year we are starting to make cheese in our small dairy.
    The goal of this project is to protect a small herd of indigenous cows, (Cabbanina cow).
    We’ve got also 2 horses, 10 alpacas, 5 dogs, some chickens and 3 pigs!
    Help us means: take care of animals(feed them and clean the stable), milk cows, make cheese or help in the dairy, keep clean the forest, help during field season and sometimes others jobs like build fences, menage alpacas or some agricolture works.
    We love our work and our life and we love to find someone to share it with and who love to join us along this adventure.
    We host our workawayers in our Private Caravan near the principal house
    Lunch Is share with us and for dinner and breakfast we provide.
    You will learn all you’ll like about our small farm.
    We know that if you are interested in, farm-life is amazing.
    Me and Simone too did work away in the past and for us it has been our big change! We hope this for our workawayers!
    There’s a lot to see all around us (amazing natural spot, river and mountain)
    Train station is about twenty minutes by car and from there you can go every-where:
    Cinque Terre about 1 hour
    Parma about 45 minutes
