Important: If you want to join our team, please contact us first to check if we have availability! We have limited spots and being close to Rome we are often full and unable to handle short-notice requests.

We are a care farm that exists since 2002, one of the first care farms in Italy. We have animals, vegetable gardens, and a fruit yard. Our many animals are part of the staff, they work with us with the disabled. We have experience with animals but a bit less with vegetable gardens. Since some years we work together with a horse riding association that specializes in Horse Bed Riding therapy for multiply disabled, the only one in Italy to offer this therapy.

The farm always has a lot do: taking care of the many animals, vegetable gardens, harvesting fruit and making marmelades for fund raising, repairs and other maintenance, cleaning, handy crafts for fundraising, wood chopping for the winter, mowing grass, etc.

The farm is near to the sea and only 1 km from the train station from where you can reach the centre of Rome in about 40 minutes. You will have a room in our farm appartment, which doubles as guest house and office. There is a living room with an open kitchen, and a bath room with shower and (small) bath.

Even if we don't do large scale production, it is a real farm, most of the activity takes places early in the morning, before it gets too hot, and therefor it is important you are not afraid to get up early, and get dirty or tired ;-) We ask 4-6 hours of help per day, and of course you can have your time off too :-) And if you like you can learn more about for instance natural horsemanship and communication with horses and other animals.

Respecting nature and animals, and sharing experiences and passions is important in our team. You want to be part of it? Email us :-)
