    Hello humans!

    WHO: Andrea, 27 year old male, and his parents Paolo and Marina

    WHERE: località Cassanigo, city of Faenza , province of Ravenna

    WHAT: I decided to go back to farming after spending 5 years in San Francisco, California. My goal is to slowly convert my dad's fruit farm into a more sustainable one. Since 2015, I have been investing free time experimenting with new methods of farming, and results have been positive. The farm has improved in many aspects, first by growing different varieties of produce, secondly by adding grains and veggies, and lastly because the whole farm evolves around the BEES.
    The harvest begins in May and ends in December. Generally, we grow cherries, peaches, apricots, rasberry, figs, kiwi, apples, pears, persimmon, pomegranate, melon, and watermelon ... ecc...

    For veggies we plant topinambur (jerusalem artichokes), safferon, potatoes, pumpkins (15 varieties), tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber, onions, garlic, shallots, broccoli , califlower, kale, fennel and artichokes.

    WHEN: You will decide that, I reccommend summer time which goes from May until September, but also the winter time here is really charming. I request a minimum of 21 days, but I strongly reccomend a month, since people who stay that long usually get the best results.

    NOW: While my dad is mainly taking care of the fruit orchard, I manage all of the veggies production and the beekeeping activities. we sell all our products directly to people at farmer markets or restaurants. We have a small production of honey, made out of 20 beehives. We mainly produce Acacia, tillium, chestnut, tarassaco and sunflower honey.

    B&B: To close this beautiful project that originated around the land we decided to open a B&B. The mantainance of the B&B includes making beds, preparing breakfast and helping around the house.

    YOU mostly will be helping me in the field and around the house via gardening and mantaining every living organism alive :) During the morning time you will also help in the house by preparing breakfast for the tourists or doing some other activity.

    Afternoon time is often dedicated to harvesting fruit and vegetables that we bring to the market on the next day.

    HOW: We will usually work in the field from early morning (depends on the period of year) until 11 o'clock in the morning. then we prepare lunch and after lunch we will take our sweet time to digest the food ( SIESTA) and in the afternoon we normally prepare for markets from 3pm to 5pm.

    During a busy market I will also request your help. Farmer's markets are three times a week in the main plaza of RAVENNA.

    PLEASE do not hesitate , for God's sake! WE are here to create and make a better WORLD for us to live in.......

    Please contact me for more info.

    i have used this website for couple years already and people from all nationality have stayed at this house.
    I have mostly had gret experience, even if few ones were not that nice. With this message i like to advise workawayers that we are a four season farm with attached a Bed and Breakfast, this to say that to maintan this operation there is a lot of work involved. I always ask workawayers what suits them best during the day and i always try to find a solution because i believe in working as a team.

    I like to be clear though, farming is fun and really mind-opening but it's not easy work.
