The fall is harvesting time at Forestarìa farm! We need few volonteers helping us (me and my husband) during the week (Mon-Fri) harvesting the olives. We start in the morning, around 8.30am, a little break for lunch and then at 5pm we finish the day. The job is really easy, but a bit hard: we need to put the nets under the olive trees and then shake the olives, collect them in boxes and move again the nets to the next trees..Learn more

Forestaria is a home in the middle of Tuscany and will take a part of your heart so beware! You are about to experience one life-changing worldpack. Eleonora and her family are amazing hosts and will take care that you do not lack anything. They will work alongside you, even if it's hard. Having said this, remember that it is a field and that you are going to be away from the city and the shops. If you want to connect with yourself and nature, this is your best option.
(: Thanks for hosting me :)

Forestarìa is located in a unique setting were I could see the wonderful violet tuscan sunset everyday. My private room was comfortable, cozy and very special (from a former pork house to a 5 star volunteer’s ensuite!). I had a good time working for the aperitivo with Eleonora, Marco, and Nuncia, always in a relax disposition, making fun and enjoying while having an intense time of labour. They are a very nice couple, with a terrific little guy, Lupo, and my experience was great. I really enjoyed your place, your project and your company. I aim to come back for the olives harvest! :)

My experience at Forestarìa was great. The place is incredibly beautiful, and the working times and activities are always respected. Eleonora and Marco are really relax and fun people that made me feel really comfortable there. I’m really grateful with them and their nice friends! I will miss you all and I will totally come back! :)

From the first day I arrived I was received with welcoming smiles and a great attitude. That day Eleonora and her husband took me out to eat at a local restaurant and that gave us the opportunity to get to know each other. From that day everything has been great, I’m grateful to them the opportunity and for allowing me to stay in their
home. This was my very first volunteering opportunity and I’m glad I landed here, at forestaría, with this great family. I’m so happy I got to spend time with Eleonora, her husband and her son and of course the amazing staff that works here.
