My farm is composed of 20 hectares of cultivated land, 7 of which are dedicated to olive trees and the other 4 hectares are fruit trees such as cherry and peach and there is also a vineyard, 5000mt. We produce 700 liters of wine and 2000 litres of olive oil every year. There is an organice vegetable garden about 5000mt. The work is related to these plants. So in Nov/Dec we have the olive harvest. In Feb/Mar we do pruning and plant more trees. Apr/May starts the organic garden and various jobs on the property. We also have work with animals such as chickens(9), wild pigs(15) and sheep(7). Tasks include herding, enclosures and feeding.
At the moment we receive visitors to our farm house with 5 bedrooms and 2 dining rooms, so we make meals for our guests. Jobs related to this activity includes: cleaning rooms and cooking rural Italian cuisine all year round.
You can chose which work you would like to do, we have plenty! Either in the field or in AgroTourism or both!
We especially need help during the harvest. I would prefer longer stays, at least 2 weeks, please.
We are very close to the bus stop with regular trips to Fara Sabina Train Station. We are about 40 km from Rome and 40 from Rieti.
We eat about 60-70% organically grown products from our property.
I sell my produce at times in the Sunday market in Fara Sabina Square. Or, at various places in the surrounding country side.
