THIS WEEK WE ARE ACCEPTING TWO DAY UP TO 21 DAY STAYS FOR CHESTNUT PICKING ...COME AND ENJOY
Our farm is in Motrone, a hilltop village placed 8km away from civilization (thank goodness) and the area where we are https://dlnarratives.eu/Storymaps/Apuan_Alps/
We pride ourselves in growing and eating our own food, vegetables fruit and grains in season, eggs, lamb , chicken, pheasant , goose, guinea fowl and quail are all bred here. Our food that we eat is home grown and sustainable, so please accept that
In September and October we are preparing for the Chestnut harvest and processing into flour using ancient methods see our video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iOM4X9MInY
We are hardworking enthusiastic team that love nature and people
and love getting back to the basics and to agriculture that was practiced many many years ago, hours depend on the seasons and what we are doing, planting and harvesting are very busy but enjoyable, winter very quiet
For those who get involved enthusiastically in our farm and lifestyle we treat volunteers like members of our family and encourage them to stay long term after a short (both ways) trial period
For time off there is a bus service that leaves our village at 7 am on Tuesday and Friday . I arrange a pick up for volunteers off the 17:20 train at our local train station which is 35 minutes drive away.
