  • Beschreibung


    We are a family (couple and two children born in 2002 and 2005) from Elduain, Basque Country, who live in a restored farmhouse of about 500 years old (we are ocupying half house). In 2013 we expanded the family vegetable garden and started with the small scale production of ecological vegetables (bio/eco/org) that we sell in a kind of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) group, in the market of Tolosa every saturday and also to a dining room of a school sensitized with local commerce and healthy eating. We also have hens, chickens (not all the year around), 2 cows (most of the time they're in the meadows) and a dog.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Besides biofarming experience exchanging, you can participate in the weekly distribution of vegetables on Tuesdays and the weekly market on Saturdays. We also can exchange knowledge about biology/nature/ecology as I studied the career of biology/ecology.
    You would listen and lern, why not, one of the oldest language of Europe, the Basque language, which is our everyday language. Any way, we also speak Spanish and some English as well.
    We also would share our knowledge about Basque culture, if you are interested.

  • Arbeit


    We would like to share or exchange our experience and knowledge with people willing to collaborate in the daily labours of a ecological farm (bio/eco/org) with a variety of tasks: preparing the ground for seeding or planting, harvesting vegetables, meadow maintenance, geting firewood, construction...
    We usually ask to help 4 hours in the morning and 1-2 after lunch, but afternoon timing could be adapted if it's necesary; weekends are time off (we consider it's interesting to come to the market on Saturdays but it's optional). Sometimes some work may be conditioned by the weather, so you may have to help on some weekends instead of week days.
    Don't worry if you never had work in a farm, you will be wellcome if you are working people.
    Based in our experience we ask you to contact us only if you are really interested, to properly manage the requests and also because it isn't a tourism accommodation where you can make/cancel reservations nor a cheap holiday place. We also appreciate to respond to all messages, even to say "No thank you, I'm not interested".
