    Description

    IMPORTANT: there are a lot of big changes happening at the farm at the moment so certain elements of the description bellow are might not be completely up to date! Feel free to ask for any information !
    Thank you !!


    A family with a community life-style, growing an organic farm in SW France ( Dordogne ), 2 minutes walk away from the beautiful river Dronne, one of the cleanest rivers in France. We're a family with two grown up daughters. One of our daughters is studying in another part of France so she's rarely here and the other spends a lot of time travelling but has recently decided to stay for a while. There is also one other member who comes and goes but usually ends up spending a good few months of the year here. We've got two horses as well as cats and dogs, but we're preparing to get a few more animals; namely chickens, ducks and eventually a pig.

    Basically, we need a lot of help volunteering in the organic garden and the greenhouse, we also share the daily chores (especially when there are a lot of us!), however there is always a lot of different stuff that needs doing depending on the season: collecting and chopping wood, restoring buildings, making fences etc.
    Helpers who can ride and deal with a draft horse and/or a young horse would be welcome.
    Since we are all French you will definitely have the opportunity to improve your french!
