  • Description

    Description

    We are a English/French couple who run an organic beef farm near the Mont st Michel in Brittany with the beautiful Salers cattle.

    We are passionate about organic farming, and living in an ecologically responsible way.
    The farm has been organic for twenty years and we try to preserve the area for us, the animals and the local wildlife.

    Life at the farm is very quiet. We have no neighbors.

    We are not far from St Malo, La Rance, the beaches and Mont St Michel.

    We speak both french and English fluently.

    We have two adorable (sometimes!) little children 2 and 3 years old) and a BIG cuddly dog.

    Big spacious private room, in our 18th century stone farmhouse. Double bed.

    We cook all our meals with real ingredients, almost exclusively organic.
    We invlite workawayers to share meals with us.

    We are not fussy eaters and eat all kinds of things. We are open to trying new things. If workawayers have special dietary requirements then let us know it's probably fine. But you may be asked to cook!
