    Description

    Hi, we are an English couple who run a Chestnut farm in the mountains of Tuscany, above Barga, along with five dogs, two cats, chickens and three horses!

    Its a stunning place, fabulous views, peaceful and quiet, but also challenging!

    STOP PRESS 2021 (Please read before applying) - We cannot take general help during 2021 season, specifically we are looking for helpers only with Chainsaw experience and forestry from Feb - May, after that period we are looking to restore an old house as a Workaway lodge, so we will be looking for a general builder, roofer and / carpentry experience, basically people with a skill in some sort of property restoration.
    Sorry about the specific requirements this year!

    We have 110 acres of overgrown and wild forest that we are trying to get back into shape!
    We are looking for people that can work with us in the forest, cutting wood for the winter, help make a barn and other farm fun!

    We work mostly outside in the woodland or garden, but we have some projects around the house this year - treatment of windows, building, plumbing, electrical work, repairing cars and mechanical things - so any skills in those areas would be great!

    We also want to install a Micro Hydro system and solar system and get off grid as much as we possibly can, so any help with this would be appreciated!

    We can take people for a minimum period of two weeks, but we are also looking for a person or persons for a longer stay / perhaps a few months even to really get to be part of the project.

    No experience is needed, but you need to be enthusiastic, have a sense of humour and be a useful sort of person!

    As much as we would like to offer nice indoor work, I am afraid that we are outside in all weathers!

    We also ex rat race professionals (both my wife and I), but now look for a more simple and connected way of life, working with mother earth and the seasons, if you are that type of person, you will understand! If not come and find out!

    In return we offer nice accommodation, great food and a great fun, in short an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life (for all the right reasons)!

    Sometimes its too hot to work, sometimes its too wet, sometimes it may be even too deep in snow (in the winter), but we like to be flexible, we realise that you want a great Tuscan experience and in exchange we want fair value for our efforts in giving you a great time!

    So flexibility is the name of the game!
