    Description

    Hello,

    we live in the south of France, the Vaucluse.
    We have been Farmers-Bakers since 2013. We grow our own cereals, make our flours on the farm and last stage make our natural sourdough bread and cook it over a wood fire.
    We sell it at the market and in the producers' store.

    We have just bought our family farm to live and work together: Julie and Romain, our children Raoul and Siobhan and grandpa Marc.

    There is a lot of work to be done in the living area but also to create our tea room project-bakehouse that is very important to us.
    We do all the work ourselves while continuing to work, which is why we would need an outside help.

    We have been hosting volunteers for the last two years and wish to continue to exchange on our peasant-baker job while taking advantage of the expertise of the people we welcome.


    Bonjour,

    nous habitons dans le sud de la France, le Vaucluse.
    Nous sommes Paysans-boulangers depuis 2013. Nous cultivons nos céréales, faisons nos farines à la ferme et dernière étape faisons notre pain au levain naturel et cuit au feu de bois.
    Nous le vendons au marché et en magasin de producteurs.

    Nous venons d'acheter notre ferme familiale pour y vivre et y travailler ensemble: Julie et Romain, nos enfants Raoul et Siobhan et papy Marc.

    Il y a énormément de travaux à faire dans la partie habitation mais aussi pour créer notre projet de salon de thé-fournil qui nous tient beaucoup à coeur.
    Nous faisons tous les travaux nous-même tout en continuant de travailler, c'est pourquoi nous aurions bien besoin d'un coup de main extérieur.

    Nous avons accueillis des woofers ces deux dernières années et souhaitons pouvoir continuer à échanger sur notre métier de paysan-boulanger tout en profitant du savoir faire des personnes que nous accueillerons.
