    Beschreibung

    We're a Dutch family (Elisabeth, Chris and our two sons Koen & Lucas) running a goat farm in the Gers, South West France. We have about 130 Alpine goats, 40 goat kids 6 billy's, 2 pigs (the local "Porc Noirs" -breed), some chicken, cats, a dog that eats the chicken, 50 ha of arable land and 20 ha of woods.

    We manage the farm in a sustainable way (Chris is an agricultural engineer with a specialization in organic agriculture) and try to keep farming and nature in balance. Our work differs with the seasons: In spring we have busy period with the lambing; summertime is hay making, harvesting cereals and seeding covercrops; in autumn the fields are preared and seeded for the next year.

    Beside the daily work (milking, feeding the goats, taking care of the other animals, the vegetable garden, repairing anything that breaks down) there are lots of projects (e.g. cutting firewood for the winter, breaking down a shed, building a chicken barn to painting the woodwork of the yurt, building an outdoor kitchen). And of course there is work on the land, however therefore you need to have some experience with tractors. Everything is possible depending on your skills and interests. In general its hard physical work but there is also plenty of time to walk/cycle/read/relax and doing nothing.

    Our farm is located in a very rural area but not isolated. There is a village at 5 min down hill by bike with shops, restaurants and a market every Friday. A larger town is at 20 minutes drive by car. The Pyrenees are at 80 k

    We provide three meals a day. Veggies come mainly from our own garden, meat from our pigs & goats, but we also like a good old pizza now and then..
