Hi, We, ( Colin, Luisa and our 16 year old son Max) run a hillside organic olive farm and small holiday business in Tuscany on the hills just outside Pisa. It's divine, it's paradise, it's hard work - here and there! We need help in the autumn and the spring to harvest the olives, do some dry stone wall rebuilding, prune the olive trees, cut the grass, paint a few fences and general maintenance jobs here and there. We are not in this to exploit, but to enjoy, exchange and educate and of course get more stuff done than we can do by ourselves! We ask for not more than 5 hours a day tops 5 days a week. We like to host teams of people so if you travelling with a mate or two, even better! If you have any of these skills - cool - if not - no problem - we'll teach you. If you're a musician then we have a little recording studio as well - this is great fun! Here is a link to a video put together last November 2017 by a friend who helped out with the olive harvest and dry stone wall building work - it's cool and it gives you an idea of what we're about:

We offer comfortable board and lodging in a beautiful restored farmhouse. We love music, good food, laughter, meditation, hiking, talking life, the universe and everything else under the sun. Get in touch - thanks!
