  • Description


    We are an international family of three living on a farm in the beautiful countryside of North Spain since two years. Together with our sheep dogs we take care of our sheep, goats, goose and chicken. We try to produce as much as possible of daily life products at home (vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, soap, herbal medicine ...). We spent every free minute outside in our garden, forest or fields. We have a great range of different task starting with gardening, composting, wood making, repairing any type of tools or buildings, conserving food, animal care and different projects. At the moment we plan our garden and renovation of parts of the house and barn. We would love to share our passion of nature an exchange experience and ideas with interested people. As we need to rebuild an old stone wall which has been destroyed this winter by flood people with experience would be awesome but it's not a must.
    We speak Bask, Spanish, German and English and look for someone helping us some hours per week with the work on our farm. We are located in the north of Navarre outside a small village in the mountains. The sea is about 20-30 minutes by car, the next city with train connection is Irun which you reach in 20 min.
