Terni

Family run farm situated 560m above sea level on Mount Peglia. We produce about a ha of vegetable garden, hay, oil, a little wine for home consumption, soft fruit. Jobs include harvesting and storage of onions, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes and beans, making tomato sauce and jam, haymaking, harvesting olives for oil and grapes for wine. But in the countryside there are always many chores to do, especially in a wilderness like this! We are just 9 km from Orvieto (5 km is along a dirt road) but as we have 3 children there is always someone who goes into town. We have no TV but we have internet, a good sense of humour is essential!.

Francesco (1989). I spent 3 years as a wwoofer and in 2016 I moved from the city and acquired some land. It's a 6ha farm, in the hills. There is woodland, 164 olive trees, a small run down vineyard and grasslands full of orchids. At the centre is the country house. After 20 years of neglect i'm renewing things following common sense and environmental principles. I'd like to cut my living cost and raise my life quality, shrink market presence and maybe leave behind something good! I work on olive trees, plant trees, lose time with the veggie garden and recover the land. I plan to build some greenhouses and get poultry, rabbits, bees and maybe sheep. A small part of the house serves as B&B. A very naturalistic approach allows me to manage everything, alone! Wwoofers backup helps me to do more and to work on ecology, fostering the Wild which i believe is common good. I'm planning water managements and ways to mix the wild habitat with the farm habitat. I try to contribute to local networks. I try not to take myself too seriously! I host no more than 2 wwoofers in a room with shared bath. If you are a family we can make some room. We eat, cook and clean together and i'd like to share my free time with you too. In the kitchen we use little meat and we can adapt our diet for vegetarians and allergy sufferers. The town is 3km away, railway station 6km (or 9km). I try to reply to all emails within a week. Tell me about yourself! I'd like if you plan to stay at least 15 days. I live with my two dogs, if you travel with pets we shall see if they get along. Gay friendly.
On our farm we follow the principles of Rudolph Steiner for Biodynamic farming, we also want to use Permaculture, and we are open to natural experiences of all kinds. Not having farming roots we are learning through continuous trial and error and have had many good results but some setbacks. We have 5 ha. of land with olive trees, vineyards, orchards, woods,greenhouses and we have recently planted a chestnut wood. Our area, as well as being in the centre of the beautiful Umbria and one hour by train from the centre of Rome, is full wild herbs. We do not claim to teach Biodynamics but we can transfer our enthusiasm and the theoretical and practical knowledge we have acquired so far; we can share the basic tasks of biodynamic cultivation such as using green manures and the preparation and use of herbal concoctions. Of course, there is something to be done every day; in the fields, in the workshop, kitchen, etc. .. We therefore need your collaboration to help our farm to grow so that it eventually brings us a modest income as well as the satisfaction it gives us of having good quality results whilst respecting the land, its balance and the fauna. We have Wi Fi but sometimes it is not the best, we also have a swimming pool. Accommodation is in a nearby self contained apartment. We are lovers of healthy Italian food and we are willing, in addition to sharing our table, to share our knowledge of simple and tasty cuisine. The model that we want to achieve is to be farmers, craftsmen, artists for a self-sufficiency that is based also on exchange with our neighbours. We speak in addition to Italian, French and English.
Small farm of about 3 ha surrounded by woods between Orvieto and the lake of Bolsena about 600 m above sea level. The area is particularly rich in biodiversity and is part of an area which has been closed to hunting for forty years. This place is suitable for those who love tranquility, contact with nature and respects her rhythms. The main activities for which help is needed are the following: in the organic vegetable garden with attention to ancient local varieties; we are in the process of creating a synergistic garden. Harvesting fruit and herbs, transplanting trees, pruning etc. Forest maintenance: cleaning and making signs for pathways, collecting firewood and identifying plants at risk of genetic erosion for reproduction by seed, cuttings and transplants. Maintaining the gardens adjacent to the houses (weeding, watering, transplanting, etc.). The farm is actively involved in the protection of animal biodiversity also with the construction of artificial nests, bird feeders and shelters for small wildlife, creating small ponds etc. In this sense it is working on testing a model of low-impact living which is respectful of other life forms. We are happy to host people who do not smoke and are vegetarian. The accommodation provided is in a single room with bathroom (possibly shared by other guests). Medium-long length of stay. Basic English spoken.

The total lack of water sources was the reason that stimulated the project ” Renewable Energy Park - FoR" (“Parco dell’Energia Rinnovabile - PeR”). We started by renovating a farm that was abandoned in the 50s and it has been a challenge. The goal is to employ clean energy sources and create a place for dissemination of renewable sources. The project is is located in Umbria, in the province of Terni, at a height of 550 above sea level. It is in a protected area and is surrounded by one of the most intact Mediterranean forests including the largest Holm Oak forest in central Italy, with chestnut woods, oak, hornbeam and maple trees. It is also an Environmental Education Centre and they organize educational tours and educational programs on energy sources. ECOTURISMOIl This is the place for people who wish to experience the true eco-tourism amidst the Umbrian woods and to have the opportunity to engage in pleasant walks, also on horseback or invigorating hikes, but also to be able to learn to live in an environmental sustainable way. The centre is equipped with a restaurant in Km. Zero which also serves meals made with food from the farm itself. Everything that is used for cooking here is produced on the farm and is all strictly organic. The farm is inspired by the principles of Permaculture. The natural environment in which the farm is located and the food it provides for the farm's restaurant is the ideal place to sensitize the participants to adopt lifestyles respectful of nature. We decrease consumption and we increase comfort: this is possible.
This is a project that encompasses permaculture, education and care for people with problems. The founders are the pioneers of European comic-therapy and have conceived this space as a place of experimentation of new culture and new sociality. It is located on Monte Peglia at 640 meters, 18 km from Orvieto on the highway 317. The farm consists of 21 hectares of woodland and arable land, 250 olive trees and a vineyard, crops to be put back into production, a large vegetable garden that is now reviving life. During the summer, holistic, permacultural and artistic educational and cultural programs are held here. There is an agricamping with compost toilet, We would host 2 wwoofers in the room with bathroom (in the summer to share with other people). We cook together, mainly vegetarian and organic. Sharing is important to us and activities will be linked to the land and the forest.
This project was born in 2014 by the will of 6 of us from the city who wanted to change our lifestyles. We rolled up our sleeves, gathered the tools, and began to clear manure from an old barn in the woods of Poggio Lavarino (TR), in the unspoiled Valserra, with the intention of rediscovering the pleasure and values ​​of rural life. The difficulties have been countless and there has constant effort! Today we are in 2 (Susanna and Jacopo) to carry on our little reality with of goats, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks but also a small domestic vegetable garden and some olive trees. After the first few years of living long periods in a trailer near the barn, in 2017 we managed to get a house in the village where we can host the wwoofers in a private room. The necessary help varies according to the seasons, but for us it is especially important to share, which until now has always been manifested in a beautiful symbiotic relationship with "our" wwoofers.

Isolated farm run by Heidi, who cares for the land and animals and is also a voice therapist. There are 3 hectares of land around the house with 80 olive trees, a vegetable garden, 40 fruit trees and 6 ha of woodland, as well as chickens, cats and dogs. Large house divided into self-contained apartments (3 apart from Heidi’s), two double rooms and various outhouses. Help needed in the fields and on the farm, looking after the animals and in the overgrown vegetable garden. Planning to utilize the large spaces for various courses. Also runs a B&B. German, English and French spoken.

A small farm run by myself (24) and my parents. On the 5 hectares of land there are mainly olives which need pruning and cleaning in the spring and harvesting in October, a kitchen vegetable garden and a small field of barley, legumes, vegetables. (crops vary from year to year). The vegetable garden expands every year and my main work is there, especially in the spring. Transplanting seedlings, preparing the ground, seeding, we pay particular attention to seed varieties and the fruit trees are local varieties. We are situated in the hills, 10 minutes by car from the town, in the last fields before the woodland starts. During the olive harvest we work longer days with extra days off, WWOOFers do not help in the agritourism but from spring to autumn we make jams, dry fruit, bottle tomatoes etc. I go out about once a week, many of my friends are artisans or small farmers, and we are starting to participate in markets and GAS (local buyers groups) with some of our produce: food (I love to cook, especially bake), soaps and creams, beauty products made from wild plants. We offer accommodation in a single room when possible, food is mostly vegetarian using our vegetables or produce from other organic farms. Write and ask if you have questions!

Ours is a small farm in the hills between Orvieto and Todi, 12 ha where we have a herd of dairy goats, pigs, sheep, farmyard animals, pets, a young olive grove of 600 trees and a vegetable garden and orchard for family use. We have a dairy where we transform the milk every day and 5 apartments where guests and WWOOFers can stay. We are 4 adults and 2 children, we are Norwegian, therefore we speak Norwegian and Italian but also good English and French. We have lived here for 8 years, it was a lifestyle choice, we still have much to learn and develop. We hope to exchange of ideas, thoughts and knowledge with wwoofers. On the other hand, life here is also full of daily tasks, daily and / or seasonal care of the animals and the land, the maintenance of the houses and fences, the wood, the garden etc. etc. Here, we would like your help in everything we're doing. We always have lunch together but in the evening you'll have a kitchen in your accommodation where you can prepare dinner but of course we provide all the food -usually from the farm. We are in an isolated place and it is very quiet, surrounded only by fields, woods and parks. We often go to Orvieto and so of course are happy to take you to the train.
