  • Description

    Description

    We are a family having a ecological farm with 5 ha land in Tuscany and making our own wine and olive oil. The products are for our own consumption and are not being sold.

    The house is a personal renovated stone farmers-house with a pool ;) and up to 12 beds to accommodate family friends and helping hands.

    AUTUMN
    From 24.10 to 7.11 we are picking olives if its good weather and fixing broken nets and chopping wood when its rainy. Because there is the pressure of the time till the olives have to be in the press we are working every day but we are also studying and working on the laptop so we will also take a day off for work etc. So there would be time for you to do the same or just enjoy the nature :)

    Weeks to choose:
    --> 24.10 - 31.10
    --> 1.11 - 7.11
    --> or both
    Please let us know what would work for you in your message .
    ____________________________________

    WINTER/SPRING
    In February we are renovating the pool, chopping wood, freeing the olive trees from the thorns ;) and the rest of the time we have to work/study on the laptop. So there would be time for you to do the same or just enjoy the nature :)

    (Messages please ONLY in English, German or Dutch - I don't speak Italian, only my dad does who will also be in toscany but I am (Johanna) managing this account.)

    We are looking for people who want to help pick the olives every end of October and beginning of November and during the year we are always doing some renovations on the house and some agriculture maintenance/landscaping in the garden.

    Since a few weeks we have internet. It always used to be a wifi free space but in times like these we decided that it makes it easier for us and others to spend time here.
