We have a nice, small organic noncommercial farm in a valley near Volterra, Tuscany. We produce organic wine and olive oil for ourselves. NOW we need two people to help with the grape and olive harvests in late September (grapes around the 20-25 Sept., but it always depends on the grapes and the weather!)and the second week of October 2019 for the olives. If that sounds interesting for you please contact us. All the work is outside, but maybe there will be some work inside if it rains. We offer you an apartment self contained. Beautiful Volterra is just nearby (we can see some of the city towers from our property. It's a fantastic place to start an exploration of Tuscany. Please contact us if you are available to help us -one week minimum (7 full days) please.

We will supply your food. We will eat together sometimes. We are happy to share our knowledge of organic farming with you and show you what we do to get the most out of the place while putting the priority on respecting the ecosystem. And we'll include the history of the great city of Volterra -a real Etruscan, Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance treasure!

Work is 25 hours per 7 day period. Weekends are generally time off unless bad weather has prevented us from working during the week.

Thanks for your consideration. It would be great to meet you here!
Catherine and Jim
