  • Description

    Description

    Hello everyone! We are an Italian family of 4 people, dad, mum and two children of 26 and 21 years old. We have a farm with horses, one dog and two cats and 70 chickens. We live in Cavedine, a small village located in the country side between the city of Trento and Garda lake. We are an active family, dealing with different activities: mum works in the office in Trento, Andrea ,Giulia and dad work in the farm, raising and training horses, and organising riding tours. We try to keep horses in a natural way, all together in a herd. Furthermore, we train them using natural techniques: communication, respect and leadership allow to establish a friendly relationship with the horses.
    We also deal with organic agriculture: vegetables, patatos, corn, eggs. Giulia speaks Italian, German and English, whereas dad and mum only Italian. We are open-minded, friendly and interested in discovering new cultures and way of living. We are vegetarians, but we also cook vegan! We love experimenting different recipies with vegetables! We would like to share with you our love for nature and our philosophy of life! Join us and and experience the country life!
    We look for highly motivated people that are not afraid of hard work and of getting the hands dirty! 😉
    WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE THAT CAN COME NOW, at least one month!
