    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I've been living in this area for more than 20 years, we're known for our ducks and foie gras, and I have my own canning business ; so if you're interested in good food, organic meat, and farmlife, you're welcome to share part of my world.

    LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH BUILDING EXPERIENCE

    Hello all !

    Although the restoring of the main house is 'done' (there is always more to do, it's from the 16/18th century), i would like to transform the barn in an open living space : a fourth wall and the windows will be done by local craftsman, but will need a lot of help with ceiling and insulation, flooring, electricity, plumbing etc, so all people with building experience are more than welcome !

    Spring 2018 (february through april) let's prepare the summer : repair some fences, redo some of the livingspace for the pigs (outside job, i raise them in the woods !), weeding, work on the deck around the pool, varnish shutters...)

    In november/december (2018), we're canning our ducks and pigs : if you want to learn and help making paté, blackpudding, confit..., be my guest !

    So depending on your skills and the weather, there will always be something to do/going on !

    See you around ?
