Sicilia

We are Enzo and Claudia (both 38) with a son of eight. Enzo lives and takes care of our organic farm every day, located near the Foce del Fiume Belice Nature Reserve. Claudia lives during the school period mainly in Palermo with our son. The main role of Claudia is to close, with the sale of organic products also of other farms, the supply chain that comes from the countryside to the city. Our main activity in the countryside is the production of seasonal organic fruit and vegetables (vegetable gardens, pear and fig orchards, olive trees for oil, two small vineyards, wheat, hay in rotation) but we also dedicate ourselves to the animals that we keep for internal productions and for ... company! Like the donkey Carmelina. We are working in collaboration with a friend of ours a small herd of local breeds of goats that would serve to integrate the work of mechanical means in the field and for the production of self-consumption of meat. Last summer we started a small farm project. Also for this purpose, during the year we make preserves and preparations with our products. We are omnivorous but we do not eat just anything, only organic and local products or purchased through the fair trade channel. Good food and a convivial kitchen are the centre of our daily life. Vegetarians and vegans are welcome. Our activity is family-run, strongly peasant and a supporter of a new rural area. We work to build a new economy, solidarity and relationship. We experience a direct relationship with consumers / citizens. We practice an ecological agriculture based on biodiversity and peasant agriculture. Conviviality is the key to everything. We therefore want to discuss all this, ideal and concrete, with those who want to support us and share with us the toil and the sweat of everyday life.

This farm is situated in the the lush Nebrodi hills in Sicily. A Greek colony made a settlement here in ancient times (300 BC). We cultivate organically 400 orange trees, 70 olive trees, 100 chestnut and two ha of hazelnuts. We also have a vegetable garden, an orchard and farmyard animals. Nearby there is an ancient spring and we use the pure water for irrigating the crops, domestic use and to fill two natural swimming pools. Accommodation is offered in a renovated farmhouse with bathrooms and hot water. To reach the farmhouse the nearest bus and train station is at Brolo. We speak: English, French, and Spanish.
