    Beschreibung

    We have been farming 850 acres of organic cereals, legumes and oil seeds (Spelt, French Green lentils, Brown flax) for over 20 years. We also have our own cleaning plant : we clean, bag and export our products to Europe and the States.

    For the past 7 years, we have been building our own log house and doing everything ourselves with very little help. Our aim is to be self-suficient (wind, solar and geothermal). Last summer, we finished the masonry fireplace and the roof. We are starting to install our recycled hardwood floors and hope to put our windows in the fall. This summer, we will be sanding and preserving the exterior walls, landscaping around the house and building stairs when we are not in the field or the garden.

    In the summer, we have laying hens, cats and dogs to take care of. We have apple trees, choke cherry trees, black and red current, Seabuckthorn and raspberries which we harvest in August and September to make our own jams, jellies and syrups. We have a large garden to weed and care for as well as 10 000 trees we have planted over the years that need some trimming or replacing.

    French is our mother tongue, but English and spanish is also spoken fluently. Some German is spoken. Musicians are welcome : we have a century-old piano and our children play fiddle and flute. We are a homeschooling family. Anyone interested in sharing their knowledge to our 2 children, aged 12 and 10, is welcome!
