  • Description

    Description

    Nurture natural Agriculture, Family centered living, and artisan Production in San Saba, along the northern coast of Messina, Sicily. We are a family seeking to live a more natural life through natural farming, allowing native wild plants to flourish along side their cultivated companions. We are looking for people interested in contributing to daily family and farming activities, food and artisan production, and those who want to live life at a slower pace.

    Our home is located right across the street from the sea in a small quiet village founded by fishermen. The farm is 3 Km away, in the hills above the coast. There are two bars open during high tourist season and a small market open year round. We are a short drive from the city of Messina and there are many historic sites within an hour or two for history buffs. There are also buses that will take you into the city and trains from Messina that can take you to the rest of Sicily. Depending on where you want to go a car is useful.

    In September we will make wine by hand the roman way. October an November will be time to pick olives.
