I am 60 years old man living with one of my sons Elias (34), I run a farm stay with 5 apartments and a small restaurant. we have goats, sheep, bees, Lavender and a small veg garden.
In the past I have been working as machine inventor near Florence, but in the last 10 years I have moved in the country side to run this farm and farm stay (agriturismo)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
we are an agriturismo on the appennins mountains,we have bees, goats, sheep, chicken, veg garden, we have plenty of customers from north of europe and north america in our farm stay, we speak german, italian and english, staying here is a good opportunity to learn languages.
I can teach how to work with bees and goats, how to maintain a house, as well as electric or slumming.
I have installed solar systems (photovoltaic and water solar) and I can explain how all this works.
I have a salt water pool, a sauna and jacuzzi to be maintained, I can teach how to do this.
living and helping in our farm is a mix of technology and tradition, we have a "almost" organic restaurant, we make our own pasta, bread, pizza, and traditional and innovative kitchen we can teach how to cook and organize a restaurant, we organize cooking classes.
Last minute, looking for someone collecting and distilling lavender ! helping in veg garden.
