  • Description

    Description

    The farm is situated on the border of the village Vallerona, Toskana, next to a bigger street, 45 km westh of Grosseto . We've moved to this plot 2015 and there is still a lot to build and arrange. The next Beach is 45 km away.
    We are a self-taught vegetable farm with focus on self sufficiency, producing a wide variety on vegetables, as well as herbs, fruit and juices. We are at the moment 2 adults and 2 small children, as well as constantly 1-3 guests. We work a lot by hand , and we grow our plants starting from seed. We are open for communicative people who can work independently and can act on their own initiative.
    The farm language is German, and we are happy to integrate people who are just starting to learn the language.
    Wwoofers can help to plant and take care of the vegetables/herbs/flowers/fruit, harvest, conserve, cook/bake for all, renovate, make fire-wood, take care of the animals and children. We have a regural weekly and daily rhythm and we work the whole year through. A warm welcome!
    Lodging:

    Either a thent a room in the Hause. Outside toilet/latrine.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    For the accommodation we have the possibility in the caravan, in the tent or in the house (in the house only from 01.11.2018) is being renovated.. Outside toilet/latrine.Tents and beds are available only sleeping bag must be brought.
    I have to say that I really need your help because with the little budget I have, this renovation is gonna be really a challenge. But sure the daily 3 meals are provided, as well as the soft drinks (very important! No drugs, alcohol in a reasonable way). The meals will be rich and varied, with a predominance of vegetarian ones.
    I count on the participation of all for the household tasks.
