  • Description


    I'm Mauro (53 years old ) and I live in my little farm with my helper Gloria (25 years old). We have many animals ! Rabbits, hens and chickens, pigeons, goats,pigs, Grigio Alpin cows, calves... 4 dogs and a lot of cats.
    The farm is situated in a forest in the mountain (700m d'altitude), 1,5 km from San Giovanni di Baiano (where my parents live), near Spoleto, in the heart of Umbria. Regurlarly, my children (22 and18) visit me and help me on the farm.
    During my life, I have travelled and worked in different countries. I met a lot of people and discovered different cultures and traditions. Six years ago I decided to change my life and renounced to earn a lot of money and have more serenity. This is a traditional farm (no ogm , no mecanisation). As we produce and sell meat, this place may not be suitable for vegetarians and people with such sensibilities.
