  • Description

    Description

    We are a family with 3 children, on the way to live our dream of food self- sufficiency. We are living in the middle of Langhe, a Natural Heritage of UNESCO.

    With us are living 2 geese, some roosters and hens, 2 donkeys, 4 sheep, 2 cats and 3 dogs. Our hose is surrounded by a beautiful and authentic nature.

    We are cultivating a little garden with aromatic herbs, some swails with vegetables and we are taking care of many fruit trees.

    What we are harvesting will be transformed in many types of preserves.
    At the present moment we are producing mainly for self-consumption.

    Helping hours are to be agreed, ususally about 3 hours per day.
