We are located in the heart of Chianti, the well-known wine area in Tuscany. But we do not grow grapes. Instead we have 1200 olive trees, we have bees, three donkeys and a 2.5 acres of land dedicated to a permaculture project.
We have been certificated of compliance with organic farming standards on july 2015
We also run a holiday house for 9 guests, which is normally fully booked in summer and sometimes during the rest of the year.
The farm is runnig just by me and I'm always looking for people who are willing to stay with me, my daughter, cats and dogs, for 2-3 weeks and help us with gardening, pruning, animals care, carpentry, plumbing, electricity, whatever your skills are, we are ready to exploit them in exchange for good food and accommodation.

We are located at less than an hour drive from Florence, Siena and Pisa.
We will also be happy to show you around this beautiful place and pick you up at the nearest train station.

Drive licence is necessary, expecially if you want to discover the nice villages and the towns herearound.

The olives harvest is coming soon. This is one of the most important period for the farm. Pick olives, bring them to the mill and taste the fresh oil is a really a great experience. We pick the olives, but our animals need to be fed, the vegetabel garden needs to be check soemtimes, the life in a farm has a lot of differents aspect. And don't forget our activities with children! I don't need 2 more hands, but a bunch of!!! If you are easy going, don't scared to get dirty, if you like animals you are really welcome!
