We (Phil and Helen) have lived on our 6 hectare smallholding in a very quiet village in the middle of Brittany for the last 25 years.
We were self sufficient for a large part of the time whilst seeing our family grow up and even becoming grandparents recently. Now Helen also runs the village shop/bar/cafe.
We now have a brand new project in renovation of our old farmhouse.
At the farm we still have chickens, sheep, a dog, cats and now and then a pig for the freezer.
Part of our land is a forest garden alongside a large polytunnel, whilst the rest is wetland, there is also a huge oak tree on the property that is over 9 metres circumference and is in guide books as an 'arbre remarquable.
we are looking for dynamic helpers wanting to expand their knowledge of;
Basic construction and renovation
Recycling and upcycling
Food and drink
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
How could you not benefit from the Breton way of living?- simple but honest, we have certainly learnt a better way of living and sharing since moving here and raising our family.
Workawayers help from 8.30 until around 13h00,and then afternoon is free time.
The work can be physically demanding as sometimes learning new skills is challenging.
We take good care of you but would also appreciate a hand with the daily chores like the dishes, sweeping up etc.
You may need to bring old clothes, strong shoes,and work gloves.
