Boerderij la Fonte in de Modenese Apennijnen van Italie

La Fonte bio-sustainable organic farm is located near Montese approximately one hour drive from Bologna, Modena an Pistoia in the Appennines of Emilia-Romagna. The farm consists of pieces of land suited best to potatoes, grain and grass, greenhouses with irrigation lake, a cheese factory, a poultry slaughterhouse, magazin for the potatoes, a stable with 120 goats, poultry and woodlands. We, Berbera and Paolo, established this farm in the 2016 and currently are looking for a group of people to take over and manage the whole farm. The ideal would be 4 to 6 people to be able to divide the different aspects and work of the farm. To make it accessible to young people without great economic resources, we propose a rental-purchase model. The farm extends over a total of 18 hectares and it is divided as follows: 13 hectares owned by Paolo, 3 hectares owned by Paolo’s sister and 2 hectares rented by a neighbour. The units are two: the main unit of the farm in Monteforte and the other unit which is 4Km away in Via Rossa. In via Rossa the new and beautiful stable was built in the 2019 with local wood and is 500mq and can host in a sustainable way up to 180 animals and already has a feeding and milking system, anti-wolves fences and about 7.5 hectares of grass and woodland. We have demolished a house inside our property because it became unstable and dangerous but it can be rebuilt. Alternatively there’s a space for a tiny house. Greenhouses, cheese factory, poultry area, chestnut woods and potatoe fields are in Via Monteforte. We would be very happy to send you more information.
