This farm is located on the hill above the town of Santa Maria in Stelle. In this ancient rural court live two families, two dogs and two cats. The main productions are Valpolicella wine grapes, olive oil and vegetables grown in the fields. The total area of the holding is 6.94 hectares, of which 1.8 Ha are planted with vines for wine, olives 0.35, 0.15 for the vegetables, the rest is forest. The farm has been certified organic since 2000, is run part-time by myself, an agronomist consultant for organic farming throughout Italy. My partner is the director of a technical school. One of our sons, born in 1987, works in agricultural development projects in Africa, the other (1991) studies food technology in Padua. WWOOFers live in the house and share the family's life and work in the fields. We like to eat good, genuine food with little meat but we are not vegetarians. We are passionate about baking bread, making salami and preserving fruit and vegetables for our own use. We also have 5 beehives. This year, my oldest son has opened a new organic viticulture farm, taking over an old vineyard with a rustic annex of the seventeenth century. For those interested, there might be a chance to help him.
Farm which has been organic since 1995 and is now being converted to Biodynamic. It is located in a village of 2,000 residents 10 minutes from the centre of Verona and 30 minutes from Lake Garda. Our family consists of four people, 2 adults and our daughter (1993) & son (1998). We grow fruit and vegetables in the greenhouse on about 5 hectares of land, and we sell them through markets, GAS, traders and shops. We would love your collaboration with taking care of the gardens, harvesting vegetables, labelling, participation in markets and to share our passion for biodynamic farming. We also welcome help in the house. In addition, we are interested in having people from all over the world with us to improve our English and to learn about realities different from ours. We can host all year round and for short stays. We can cater for vegetarians. There are 2 bedrooms available. No smoking in the house. English spoken
