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.

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.
We ask our helpers to work 25 hours a week. Your help will be mostly concentrad in 5 days and 2 days are off.
Your daily task will be to take care about our beautifull chickens and in general help with a different duties which are connected to agriculture and self-sufficient lifestyle. Jobs are variable according to a season.
As i mentioned above,we have 2 boys . They are use to to see a new people and they will be very happy to share some time with you, especially during a weekend when we have to work. So one of your tasks can also be to help us with boys, to make sure their room is tidy and in general help with small family things like setting table or washing plates.
