    Hello, we have a small farm in France, 2 hours NE of Bordeaux, we keep 6 horses, 4 dogs, hens, ducks.
    I have my own recruitment company, my daughter lives on the farm permanently ( I travel a lot)
    We love our rural life, and although we are quite remote by some standards, its only 20 mins to town for supplies. When I am at the farm there's always so much work to do, and I think we could do with a hand to do some projects, if you can teach me some basic skills I'm ready to learn! we have developed the farm during the last 5 years, but there's a few things id like to try tackle myself, if I had someone with a good skill set, especially if they are interested to live off-grid to some extent. our house has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a large kitchen diner and a large lounge. In the hot weather, we don't use the lounge, we are outside most of the day, often working till late, we eat outside too.
    I make jam and bread, cakes, pizza, daily.
    we don't have a 9-5 mentality, we go by the weather mostly.
    my daughter works with horses and also as a labourer for builders, she does gardening and painting to earn money. she lives at the farm permanently,
    I am in Ireland now but hope to go to the farm in mid May, and stay there for the summer.
    I have a few projects that I would like to tackle if I have someone who can guide me and help out

    we live near a medieval town in SW France, its a great area to explore on foot, our house is on the edge of a 1000 acre forest, so if you like wildlife, survival, photography, painting or anything to do with the outdoors, you will be in your element.
    we also sometimes have other house guests. you are free to cook favourite dishes and educate us about your own country !

    hello, I'm looking for someone who has experience with building and woodwork, who is interested in off-grid living. I am hoping to make some solar system for my house, and some other small projects, like making shutters, repairing roofs etc. so if you can help me make a solar system, that's a huge bonus.
    An interest in homesteading, living off-grid, being self-sufficient is important. I would like to learn some of these skills too.
