May is the month with the most visits from schools, almost every single day!
Are you interested in helping? Shoot us a message!
Our farm is located in the middle of Padana Plain, in the Northern Italy. It's very close to the rivers Po and Oglio and also to the UNESCO world heritage cities of Mantova and Sabbioneta. It is also about 45 minutes away from Verona and Garda lake.
Our family has been conducting this farm for more than 100 years now.
In the last 15 years we have been focusing on didactic activities for children.
It's a small family now but there are still a lot of nice things to do, guiding the children through the farm for the different projects, feeding the animals, helping Nonna Rosa with the vegetable garden...
Unfortunately we don't speak English but we speak fluent Italian, a bit of French and some rusty German.
Nevertheless we require you to speak at least some basic Italian in order to be able to communicate with la Nonna (our grandma)!
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
At our farm you can help with our vegetable garden, feeding our animals (chickens, a cow, goat, dogs, ducks...), managing our website or helping with the general maintance of the farm.
Also, during Spring and Autumn, many schools are coming so that the children can experience some genuine farming life and see where the food they are eating everyday is coming from.
We would like to organize a treasure hunt in our wood. You are welcome to help and share ideas!
We can host up to two people, and we can provide free food and accomodation. We can't guarantee cooking but we can give you food and we have a kitchen that you can use.
Italian, French, German, basic English
You'll have your own room in an independent flat with hot showers, kitchen, living room. WiFi is available.
