Region: CenterWe are a Dutch family of 5 persons. Since december 2011 we're living in France. We have a dairy farm with about 100 milking cows and even so much youngsters. The farm is growing, so we're moving 14 october the cows to our new stable at a few km away. We are following one week later. Afterwards there still needs a lot of finishing work to do. And the old stable needs te be changed in a youngster stable. Because of the children we have a little preferance for french speaking people. But everyone can contact us! Our livestyle and farm is regular, not ecologic. But it doesn't mean that we are not open to good suggestions!
