A farm experience near Pisa
We offer comfortable board and lodging in a beautifully restored farmhouse. We love music, good food, laughter, meditation, hiking, talking life, the universe and everything else under the sun. Get in touch – thanks!
Rocks and Olives! Rocks, and Olives!
We want to rebuild dry stone walls – great work!
Our family loves life, loves people, and we love what we do. We farm olives on a small scale – completely organic – on 4 hectares of terraced hillside. We have:
- an allotment, we make our own compost using worms.
- fruit trees.
- We are surrounded by forest above and fields below.
- a small holiday business that pays the bills.
- guests from all over the world.
- When we’re not looking after the holiday business, we love to play music – we’ve built a cool recording studio in an old animal shed.
Type of help
We own and run a lovely holiday business, recording studio and hillside olive farm in Tuscany on the hills just outside Pisa. It’s divine, it’s paradise, it’s hard work – here and there! We need help in the autumn and the spring to harvest the olives, rebuild dry stone walls, prune the olive trees, cut the grass, paint a few fences and general maintenance jobs here and there. We like to host teams of people so if you travelling with a mate or two, even better! If you have any of these skills – cool – if not – no problem – we’ll teach you. Get in touch – thanks!
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Travellers benefit from spending time in a beautiful place, meeting people from all over the world, learning lovely skills like olive picking and pruning, responsible fire making, dry stone wall building, Italian cooking etc – all skills that can help them travel and offer worthwhile help on the way! If there are any musicians – we have a cool recording studio – great fun laying down a live track after a day in the olive grove.

What else …
If you’re a musician then we have a little recording studio as well – this is great fun! Here is a link to a video put together last November 2017 by a friend who helped out with the olive harvest and dry stone wall building work – it’s cool and it gives you an idea of what we’re about:
