The Experience

At the moment we need help needed for olives picking to make olive oil. We have a farm on the Sicilian hills, looking at the seaside from the top. We have animals to take care of and fruit plants, vineyard, olive tree, and vegetable garden. At the moment is an olive season, so we need help for the picking and to experience the making of olive oil.

I had an amazing time there, and Filipo is a great person. He gave me options of work, and let me choose what I rather do, he would work with me, or came often to check if everything was fine. Work can be hard, but he is a flexible person, and the hours are respected. The view from the farm is amazing, even more beautiful than the pictures. I highly recommend the experience. The structure needs some improvement though, so if you’re a person who likes to be really confortable that might not be the best place for you.

Nuestra experiencia fue buena. Ante todo Filippo es una gran persona, que se preocupó por las tareas que realizábamos trabajando de la misma forma que nosotros y siempre preguntándonos si estábamos bien! El trabajo fue un poco duro porque finalmente teníamos que limpiar el campo entonces fueron tareas de limpieza de campo, pero la cantidad de horas por día considero que fueron las correctas. El campo está en la montaña por lo que si quieres desconectar totalmente y conectarte con la naturaleza (100%) es una buena opción.
Si consideramos que las instalaciones deberían mejorar un poquito.
