  • Description

    Description

    We are two brothers taking over the family farm and turning it to organic production. We have cattle (~30 cows), various animals (chickens, 2 ducks, 2 geese, a dog and a cat)) cereal production (wheat and barley that we will use to brew our beer), an orchard and a vegetable garden big enough for our own consumption and to produce sirups, jams and surplus that people can buy self-service in the village.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a counterpart we would love to share with you the following
    - How to brew beer
    - How to produce your own delicious food
    - How to behave with cattle and how to care for it
    - How to speak French

    We live in a beautiful region right between Lausanne and Geneva (40km away from both) and you would enjoy a beautiful view on the Alps and the lake of Geneva. As you see the village is not too far away from the civilisation ;) but it is also located at the bottom of the Jura mountain so if you like nature, trekking or biking you are at the right place.

    Accommodation

    The accomodation is a separate flat with three rooms and a big kitchen. Smoking inside is not allowed.

    For the food we would meet for the breakfast and lunch in the family house. For the dinner, we could also eat together but it could happen that you would have to cook your own dinner, with the food we would provide (from the farm or from the small grocery store that is next to our house)...
