We are a small farm in Mayenne, preparing to open as a business as an open/petting farm for children and families. we are hiring a restored Gypsy wagon througout the summer.
We have small animals, chickens, geese, ducks and Ouessant sheep as well as small pigs and goats. We grow our own vegetables and we keep bees on our farm.
My husband Richard is English and I am French but I speak fluent English. I teach English in the local school and I run a business teaching French from home. Richard is a tree surgeon and does chainsaw carvings as well as renovating the farm.
We are looking for a friendly helper who loves animals and is not afraid to muck in. We need some help with maintaining the place looking good and we have many exciting projects about to happen, including a cobwood farm shop being built and helping looking after the animals. We offer a stay in a lovely and charming bedroom in the old bread oven.
Carole and Richard look forward to meeting you!
We work in an organic way and are fairly knowledgeable on gardening and building work. I run French lessons so helpers are welcome to join in. We also speak English and I speak a good bit of Spanish. We love meeting new people and sharing our love of nature and our lifestyle.
