    Description

    Hi!!! We are a family of four. Me and my wife have one kid 9 years old(Gabriele), an another 5years old (Leonardo).

    We are in Appenin mountain (Borgo val di Taro -close by Parma and 60km from a sea side) and we own an Organic farm. We produce a vegetable for our Agriturismo and we don't have any animals except a chickens and house pets.
    We eat mostly vegetarian food, but some time we eat a meat.

    We are very openmind persons and we are always keen to share our daily live with new arrivals. We can offer a cultural exchange and help with Italien language as we speak very correct Italien at home. We will be happy to share also our experiences with organic farming and vegetarian coisine.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak very correct Italien and we will be very happy to help to learn it. We have a vegetarian ristorant where we use 80% of our own productions (vegetables, fruits, grain, spelt and Km0 products., no soia, no palm oil etc.) My wife studied permaculture and we already have some projects done. (huge herb spiral, with pond and aquatics plants and others). We also start to apply biodinamic technics.
