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.

Be it french language, organic farming, ecological construction, there are many things to learn and share here. Our lifestyle is typical of this part of rural France.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We don't really need any help with the cattle. But we have many other projects annex to the farm which we have little time for. Like tree planting, creating a garden, cultivating mushrooms, renovating old buildings and so much more!
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!
Transport is not ideal here. But its usually easy to hitch a lift.
Free time could be spent visiting the local area, enjoying a meal or drink with our friends, mushroom picking, hiking, fishing etc.
We just ask guests to be respectful of others.
