MA’FALDA FARM IS LOOKING FOR A NEW EMPLOYEE

MA’FALDA FARM IS LOOKING FOR A NEW EMPLOYEE

In Umbria, in the hills between Orvieto and Todi, we have a farm where we breed about 45 dairy goats. All the milk is processed in the farm’s cheesemaking dairy. We also have a small herd of Cinta Senese pigs as well as a courtyard and vegetable garden for our own use.
We are currently looking for an employee as of the new year. The task will mainly be to assist with work in the stables and the dairy.

Capre e Cesti: putting our idea into action

Capre e Cesti: putting our idea into action

The project revolves around the idea of reorganising a cheese production trade, which was started 10 years ago with a few goats (presently a herd of 60) by Attilio, a native of the village of Tufillo. The Fattoria Fonte Trocchi is collaborating trough the purchase of 2/3 of the goats and is contributing with two new workers (Federica and Tullio) and occasionally other participants such as woofers and potential new workers on trial. We will collaborate with the Corpo Forestale (Forestry Department) to determine the areas of woodland and scrubland where firebreaks can be created through goat grazing, with Saverio Danubio, a biotechnologist, for the management of the goat manure in an insect-composting plant, and with local farmers for hay and oat supplies during periods when grazing is not sufficient.

walls built as if they have already collapsed – unbreakable walls

The walls of most houses standing today split open vertically over time. The foundations of houses built by the present generation for future generations, on the contrary, contract horizontally with the passage of time. In many places in the world, this type of wall can be built without any planning permission.
