Hi everyone, we are a family of four, Jennifer, Stefano, David who is 7 and Ariel who is 1, we live and work in our countryside agriturismo in central Italy, an organic farm established in the early Eighties where people come to spend their holidays. We have 6 donkeys, two calfs, chickens, pigeons, rabbits, cats, dogs. We are surrounded by woodland with beautiful walking paths, here are a sauna in a cave in the forest, a swimming pool, a vegetable garden and olive trees. We produce organic extra virgin olive oil, jams, spelt, honey, meat, vegetables, and everything we can for our own consumption and restaurant.
We have 3 holidayhouses wich are rented during spring and summer time to italian or people from other countries, mostly families with kids.
Here is a restaurant where our guests can eat good and healthy food.

Living in the Umbrian countryside is an experience in itself, connecting with the pace of nature and breathe in the cultural traditions of the heart of Italy. We will share all our knowledge about growing and tending plants and animals, and the principles of organic farming, about italian food, and about living and working in an italian "agriturismo".
Jennie has a passion for naturopathy, yoga, arts, creativity. Stefano for food, plants, tools, wood and fishing. We can help you learn and improve italian and introduce you to our beautiful region.
We are looking for a strong person, with at least a bit Italian speaking, who can help us with the many things that need doing around our family house and farm.
We will need from March to May for preparing the vegetable garden, helping with wood cut, new animal fences, little masonry works, open paths in the wood, repairing and maintenance works, olive trees pruning and plants cutting. This person will work especially with Stefano (who speaks very less English or other languages), for outside works.
