    Help

    We need some help with ordinary and extraordinary works in the farm (to build animal's enclosure, to take care of the animals, to cut the grass, collect olives and other fruits, work in vegetable garden...). I've got also a little agriturism connected to the farm, we don't need help here, but usually we eat here during week end and we will be happy to have you as guests! But if you want you could stay with us in the kitchen to learn some secrets about italian kitchen! But we don't need help in kitchen actually!
