I, my husband E. and our two sons L. (14) & C. (12) run this small farm of less than 7 ha in Abruzzo, in the Pescara hills. I was born in Switzerland and do the main work on the farm. E., born in northern Italy, teaches at the university. E.’s mother also lives with us, and 3 dogs and 2 cats. We live 30 minutes from the sea, 40 from the mountains, and 2 km from Loreto Aprutino, a small medieval town. We live in a wooden frame straw bale house and we heat the house with wood from the pruning of our trees. We have a vegetable garden, 300 olive trees and 300 young fruit trees and live with great respect for the environment. We are at an early stage of reforestation and regenerating the the soil. We are not mechanized and intervene as little as possible in the work of Nature. We are vegans for ethical and environmental reasons. B. offers vegan cooking classes. The jobs are varied: in the vegetable garden, maintaining the trees, the land and the house, making preserves (jams, juices, drying vegetables and fruits, bottling). The accommodation is in the house. If preferred or at busy times of the year you can also pitch a tent. Languages spoken: English, French, German (only B.)
