Hello!! :D
We are Alison and Francesco and we run our small-scale organic farm in the Appennini mountains near Modena. We have a market garden and produce vegetables, eggs and honey which we sell at farmer's markets and our box scheme. We are preparing to plant a mixed fruit orchard this winter.

We use regenerative agriculture and permaculture practices on our farm and are passionate about sharing our experiences as they unfold with other people who are interested in this way of farming. We have two cats and two dogs. Accomodation is provided in a small yurt in the woods, with views of the old castle. Between us we speak English and Italian as native languages and some French and Spanish. We are passionate travellers, adventurers and cyclists and enjoy having other people bring us the travelling spirit now that we are rooted in our farm with less possibility to go away.

The farm is situated about 45 minutes away from the nearest train station, there are daily buses on the main road and a small village with a grocery store and bar 10 minutes by bike. We eat a predominantly vegetarian and wholefood diet, and we love making bread and pizza in the cob oven in summer!

We would love to meet enthusiastic people who are interested in learning about organic and agroecological farming, who would like to experience farming life and who would like to immerse themselves in a rural environment.
Thanks for reading and we look forward to hearing from you soon! :D
