    Description

    Hello everybody!

    We are a Dutch family with kids, dogs and farm animals that makes a living in a beautifull place in the Belgium Ardennes (the French part).
    We have an old farm witch is renovated into twelf apartments, and where tourists can stay over. Also we have animals that deserved better lifes than they had before.
    We always have a lot of work taking care of our guests ( we as the team of the farm ) so help of traveling workawayers with the animals, their surroundings and the maddoiws to make sure they are well taken care of and stay inside the fences. We also have a big (veggie) garden where you can be a great help!
    It is great to see everything getting nicer all the time, and being a part of that for a period of time.
    The help asked is not with guests but more around the farm with the garden, animals and their maddow.

    Mis treated or no longer wanted animals can find a shelter at our place.
    We have some small animals like chicken and pigs and some poney's. Our 4 dogs also love to play with you!
    Our guests love it when we take the poneys out so they can brush and pet them.

    We love to grow our own herbs and veggies, along with other plants and flowers. Enough to do with gardening here!

    We are looking for some motivated people who can help us out, for a period of at least two weeks.

    Nature is our passion and our guide. Being who you are no matter the form, as long as it starts with positivity! If it is yours also, we know you are gonna have a very good time with us!

    We hope to meet you soon!

    Mireille, Sanna, Mara and Mebel
