Living a rural experience in Umbria

From October 3 to December 18, 2011, you can spend a week's holiday in the countryside as cheap as possible participating in the activities of the farm.
You will live like family, sharing their normal daily tasks and participating in agricultural activities for 3-4 hours a day, the rest of the time you can dedicate to walking, visits to the most important historical sites of Umbria, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, or reading, meditation, and in the evening, at dinner, sharing the experiences of the day with everyone enjoying the company and local products.



including accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner:                                                                                   50€ per person per day


Cooking course, 3 days,

with the elaboration of traditional Umbrian and research recipes, focusing on the use of seasonal and local products:

                                                             100€ per person



-         by reservation only

-         Minimum stay 5 days (Saturday and Sunday may be included)

-         Depending on individual skills, participation of 3-4 hours day at the farm's daily activities is required

-         Who does not want to carry out activities in the country will be a surcharge of 40 € per day

Today in the New York Times there's an interesting piece called "Small U.S. Farms Find Profit in Tourism," about how important agritourism is becoming in many rural areas of the United States (but that's something all of you in this group already knew!).  An excerpt:


..."The United States Department of Agriculture predicts that this year the average farm household will get only about 13 percent of its income from farm sources. Agritourism is appealing because it increases the family’s income from the farm, potentially reducing the need for off-farm jobs.

The U.S.D.A.’s census of agriculture, which is conducted every five years, estimated that 23,000 farms offered agritourism activities in 2007, bringing in an average of $24,300 each in additional income. The number of farms taking part fell from the previous census, in 2002, but at that time the average agritourism income per farm was just $7,200.

California, the nation’s largest farm state, was among the leaders in agritourism, according to the census, with nearly 700 farms averaging more than $50,000 in agritourism income.

The agritourism movement is fueled by city dwellers who want to understand where their food comes from or who feel an urge to embrace the country life..."
