    Description

    I'm not a professional farmer. I'm just passionate of natural farming. I have only one hectare of soil with only 6 synergistic beds which I'd like to increase. 200 trees of olive, almond, carob, fig, etc. There is a little house refurbished since one year and perfectly functional (bed room, bath room, kitchen and living in one room provided of one additional day-bed. One pergola outside of 25m2). No frigo, light inside produced by an offgrid solar panel and relevant batteries. Electrical power by moto generator when needed to feel tanks of water and any other occurence.

    The place is located in southeast of Sicily (6 km from Pachino toward Ispica). The sea is far 3 km (Granelli beach) and 10 km from Marzamemi (touristic place and beach). 20 km far from Noto (City of Baroque). Me and my wife will be happy to host a couple of persons available to help us for few hours per day for improving such beautiful place. To be noted that we are not living there and I'm just spending my time in the countryside when I'm free from work.

This is Billy. A dog coming from a very close wine maker farm when we are present. He's able to listen us arriving from kms and reach our house to stay with us for a full day, eating with us, resting and playing. I call him a free spirit.
