We are an American/Belgian couple living on a organic farm with vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees and a small vegetable garden. Our 8 ha property is on terraced slopes with dry stone rock walls (without cement) facing the Etna Volcano. The farm is a five minute walk from the village, but the accommodations are in the centre on top of our wine makery. Linguaglossa is the starting point for excursions on the north side of the Etna and is only a 15 minute ride to the nearest beach.

We are looking for physically strong people who are not afraid of working hard. Apart from farm help rquired there is also construction and renovation tasks. We are restoring an 18th century Palmento (wine makery) into a retreat center, small medieval houses in Castiglione di Sicilia and some other projects. Apart from this there is also some help needed in a holiday rental villa during season. So if you love a challenge and nature, there is plenty of indoor and outdoor work.

We look for help all year round, especially during the months of harvest : September, October and November. We welcome all those who enjoy working whether outdoors or in nature with a joyful passion.


Here is an example of the works that we do :
1. helping pruning the olive trees (taking away the branches and burn them) (nov-dec-jan-feb)
2, helping pruning the vines (taking away the branches and burn them)(jan-feb-mar)
3. helping building dry stone walls in the fields
4, weeding the garden
5, cleaning out the lake/eco pool and preparing for spring/summer (april-may)
6. tying up the vines (june july august)
7. spraying the olive trees with bio products (feb march)
8. painting walls, doors and fences inside and outside
9, helping preparing wine and olive orders for shipping (putting on labels, capsules, etc...)
10. all types of construction tasks.
