OLIVE HARVEST is a nice and calm work in the olive yards. we dont work with machines. we believe that the traditional handpicking in olivenets leads to a better quality of the oil, the surrounding and the human life of the people involved. No machines means no stress and no noise. theres room to talk, to sing or to rest. The harvest days are long and hard days. we try to start as soon as humidity permits (usually between 8 and 10am) and if Its raining, as soon as it stops and dries up. We will have good lunches together under the trees and continue picking until almost darkness (around 5pm). Then we take our little tractor to bring up the olives to the farm. Under the roof in the workshop we clean them from the leaves, weigh and store them. The big goal is to make 400kg as soon as possible, best in one or two days for high oil quality. That s why during harvest days we have really to concentrate on the work. It s no stress but we need to push to make the goal. In the time some of the group does the olive cleaning, some others cook dinner, lights the fires, do the table, the dishes and prepares for next day. One by one can take a fast shower. Than we eat all together in the big tent. If theres someone who likes to play guitar or some other instrument it would be welcome. Once we have reached the goal of 400kg next day in the morning we bring the olives to the oil mill. Each time one person can come to visit the mill. (theres only one place in the little Landrover truck).
Accommodation will be in shared small rooms in the house. If the weather is good you can also choose to sleep in a tent outside. We will provide: sheets, covers, pillow and optionally tent and matrass. A big common tent will be there as common place for all of us, there is no other space in the house. There is hot_______________________________Pagina 12 di 13water but please be mindful while taking showers, water is available but limited. There is also an outdoor shower and a compost toilet is available outdoor as well. PLEASE NOTE that electricity in the farm is limited, therefore you will not be able to use hair drier, electric shavers or whatever. There is no washing machine. clothes must be washed by hand and hot water for cloth washing must be heated on the kitchen fire. You will be able to charge your phones, tablets etc. there is a wireless connection available even though it is not real fast and limited to necessary use; for long chats theres a wireless place in the village. We will prepare food together in our outdoor kitchen, there is also an outdoor fire place and oven… we eat together in the big common tent. Every day we choose a team for cooking, kitchen and bathroom service.
The farm is located in Roccatederighi a small town in the countryside of Tuscany where you can find wi-fi, a bar, restaurant, post office, bank office, small shops, doctor. It takes 15 minutes to walk to Roccatederighi. At 40 minutes walking distance you can find an ancient and abandoned castle (Castello di Sassoforte). At 45 minutes distance the little town and castle of Montemassi. The host are available to provide all information to reach the nearby town with public transportation but be aware that public transportation can be not always available.
Podere Onorate is a small farm, 1km south of Roccatederighi, up in the hills of Tuscany with a beautiful view over the Maremma towards the sea. We work about 9 hectars of diversified land. We have olives, vines, woodland, fruit trees, chestnuts, almonds, vegetables, herbs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, bees, a dog and cats. We follow the ideas of biodynamic farming. We do the dynamisation and spraying and preparing of compost. We dont burn the cuttings but shredder them for mulch. We try to preserve the natural surrounding and wildness of the place. We are not a producing farm, all we do is for ourselves: self-sufficiency or exchange with friends. We make really high quality olive oil and a little wine. We also have a mechanics-, woodwork- and blacksmith-workshop: We try – and do – as much as possible ourselves: grow our own food, carry out building works, repairs, solar off grid electricity, water, home and unschooling. During the summer we live completely outside. We have an outdoor kitchen and living room under the trees. There is a shower outside but there is also a simple, spartan bathroom with shower in parents house. Often we host guests and friends and wwoofers, trainees and international volunteers. We eat mostly vegetarian, if possible our own stuff, otherwise if possible organic. We also like meat, but it s not a problem to avoid it. We are used to cook vegetarian or vegan. We cant spend too much money on food, but we like to cook and eat. We speak German, Italian
