  • Description


    Hi guys!!!
    We are Marta and Peter, we live in our farm in a small village in South Tirol, just 10km from Switzerland and 15km from Austria. We are young farmers full of ideas and projects, we're surrounded by the beautiful mountains of the valley Vinschgau. We live with our lovely dog Bruno, he is always with us on the fields and in the farm. He really likes cuddles and gets along with all the animals of the farm.

    Me, Marta, was born in 1998 in the north-west part of Italy, I've had many experinces in volunteering and thanks to them I understood that sustainable agriculture was my way. I helped people in their realities and learnt from them a lot of my job. When I graduated in agriculture at University I just wanted to get involved, so I went to South Tirol for working and here I met Peter. Now I want to change the point of view, thanks to the best host family that helped me growing so much, I want to try to return what I received and transmit the passion for my lifestyle to people like me some years ago.

    Peter was born in 1991, in the little village where is located our farm. He worked as a mechanical and in 2019 he took the decision of coming back to his farm to carry on the reality that his uncle and his grandad had built. He is a very manual person, he always find solutions to any kind of problem and he likes helping people and if you are interested in learning and trying he loves to give back his experience.

    On our little farm we grow different varieties of vegetables for us and for the deliveries, most of all from seeds, I prepare all plants in the seedbed during the season. We both love to prepare processed products with our fresh vegetables and jams and syrups with the fresh fruits of our garden (apples, pears, apricots, cherries and berries).
    We have milking cows and calves and during the summer almost all of them go to the mountain huts.
    We also have pigs and chickens that have space outside where can eat fresh grass and insects.

    Living with us you can learn about organic agriculture, how to work with cows, understanding them from the observation of their behavior, how it is organized a farm and the daily situation a farmer has to face.

    In 5 minutes we're inside the forest and it's full of paths that can lead you to fantastic places in the middle of the nature, so in your free time you've plenty to discover.
    You can come with us to the mountain huts, where every year in the summertime the cows are brought to eat the fresh grass of the high altitude that allows to produce top quality butter and cheese.

  • Aide


    The help we need in our private garden changes from day to day, you'll help us to prepare the land, sow and transplant, harvest, remove weeds in order to harvest the vegetables that we'll cook for our delicious meals ;) while in the farm you can follow us during the milking of the cows and with the feeding of the chickens, the calves and the pigs. You can help us in the house too, sometimes preparing the meals, working with us in the restoration of the old part of the house, preparing transformed products with our fresh vegetables and fruits!

    Enterprising people that look around and see what has to be done can help us a lot, people interested in sustainable farming, that want to have a direct experience and with whom we can exchange ideas and opinions, we are open to proposals and like having different points of views.
    If you are curious, full of energy to share, interested in agriculture or you want to approach to this world, willing to live a rural experience with animals and vegetables and not afraid of working hard with good and bad weather, putting your hands in the land, make your clothes dirty in the stable, wake up early (most of all during the cauliflowers harvest) and help us in our intense lifestyle you are welcomed in our house and farm!

    Please write the word "BRUNO" in your request, this can make us sure you've red this important part.

During the lunchtime we'll be always together, but for the dinner it will depend from the daily routine. Most of the food is provided from the farm (milk, butter, cheese, meat and vegetables!!), so the fridge won't never be empty ;)

    We are really close to the Stelvio pass which is the highest and more tortuous pas in the world, with the amazing view of the glacier in the front. It's a perfect area for the lovers of the outdoor sports (hiking, cycling, skiing...) in the Resia and St. Valentino lake it is also possible to do kitesurf.
    All the Valley it's amazing if you like staying in nature with few tourists around and Switzerland and Austria are really easy to reach.
    There are public transports that can bring you to the villages and the cities around (Merano and Bolzano are the biggest cities in South Tirol).
