    Description

    Eugenio (my husband) and I moved to this wonderfull place surrounded by chestnut trees and meadows 12 years ago. We are around 50 years old and we run a small organic vegetable farm in the Dolomites. We also run a very small agriturismo (3 rooms and 6 restaurant places) We are vegetarian. We have chickens , cats and a nice dog named Rosy (a sheppard). We live near a nice small village named Valmorel in Limana townhall. We are building a small building to enlarge the part of the house for the farming tools and products . We also prepare weekly veg boxes for families living nearby in villages and towns (Belluno, Limana). We attend to the soil and spring summer andfall are the main season we need help at the farm. Volunteers can sleep in the attic above the agriturismo room or (in few weeks) in the new stone building we are preparing. We love cooking and we can share our cooking experience if asked.

We also have friends here that can give you a lift if needed. In the small village we live close to you can find a bar/restaurant but there are no shops. Limana town is 10 km far from us. Other people volunteering can be at the farm and share car with you (sometime they come by car)
