My Letter to " Poggio Antico " - A Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture Farm in Toscana, Italy

Dear Alessandro,

This is Jocelyn Lin writing from Taiwan. I know your organic and biodynamic agriculture from television, Discovery Channel, last week which was presented by Miss Joan, a movie star from USA or UK.

I was deeply touched & so heartened by your love toward the land, the animal, the plants, and the way you cherish the nature environment. Every words you said were extremely encouraged me & from your father's eyes, I could see his endless tender & passions toward the commitment you made - avoiding the exploitation from the nature mother & maltreatment toward the animal.

I'd had a serious illness during 1999 to 2000, recovered for the past few years, and I would like to keep on living by the way you did.

This year, I'd like to go back to Italy on May. I'm wondering if it would be possible for you to offer me the occasion to work & learn in your farm. I may work in the field for planting, feeding the animals, work in the cheese factory, or packing the herbs with the ladies. I'd been a secretary in a Science Industrial Park for almost 10 years, but never work at any farm before. So I may be clumsy & unhandy, but I'll be humble & learn with respect from you & your family.

Sorry for bothering you & bringing you troubles if any.

Thank you very much in advance for your time & patience.

Wish you a good day.

Jocelyn Lin

A reply E-mail from " Poggio Antico " in Montespertoli, Toscana

Dear Jocelyn,

I just spoke to your husband Richard at the I told him, I will give you an answear as soon as possible.

Thank you for the beautiful words you spend for us....It was very kind of you. Nevertheless, I also hope you are aware that we are not perfect and we still fell on the way to improve our many limits. I take advantage to wish you and your husband happy Easter.

Dear Jocelyn,

We are looking forward to meeting you. The date of your arrival is fine.

You are supposed to have meals with my parents, and you will have got your own bedroom at the guests' house. The members of our family are very kind and joyfull. The only problem is that they do not speak english.....but there is other way to "talk", isn't it ?

Please confirm me the supposed date of your arrival. We can pick you up somewhere around here, just let us know where. I say you bye for now.

Kind regards

Here I am back in Italy... at " Poggio Antico ", Toscana.

我倚在窗前... 靜靜等候日出...




昨天抵達農場的那一刻.. 一切仍然像在做夢...
Alessandro微笑著對我說" It likes a miracle..for having you here...^_^ "
是啊... 這世界真是神奇啊 ~
只因為在Discovery電視上看到農場的報導深受感動,竟然就來到這裡 ~~~







這是農場經營的有機商店與自家農產品! 農場也直接配送產品到客戶手中


我的最愛 - 自產自製的有機初榨橄欖油,味道果然跟一般橄欖油截然不同!
深綠色,微微辛辣的口感,味道香甜得令人迷醉.. 沾麵包就好吃極了!


對白米,白麵條,白麵包沒什麼興趣的我和小孩來說,這裡像是天堂 ~




用新鮮的Carciofi朝鮮薊拌義大利麵,是絕妙好滋味 ~





~ the end ~
