    We are a family in full cretion of a collective; in search of members, installed on a farm of 60 ha, the site is composed of forests and meadows, the farm is located in the Grands Causses park at 550 meters above sea level.
    Our project is to achieve food and energy autonomy.

    pas vegetarien friendly!

    Our farm activities are:

    - raising Highland pigs and cows
    - milking dairy cows (we transform milk into yogurt and cheese)
    - eco-construction (dwellings and associated constructions)
    - the vegetable patch
    - make firewood
    - take care of the poultry (give grain, harvest the eggs, change the straw)
    - maintenance of fences
    - the transformation of our production (fruits, vegetables, meat)



    The projects for 2021:

    -Creation of an orchard of more than a hundred fruit trees in old varieties
    -Plantation of several hundred willows for basketry
    -Position of hedges
    -The installation of a sawmill
    -Construction of a Tiny House intended for Wwoofers
    -Construction of a vegetable dryer
    -Installation of around thirty solar panels
    -Construction of a large chicken coop
    -The installation of bee hives on the site, done
    - Takeover of the bakery
    -Plantation of fruit trees (again!) For the fall

    We like to share good times with people who love nature and simplicity.
    There are caravans for sleeping and pitches available for camper vans, tents, etc.
    We eat together most of the time if desired.
