    Description

    I am Nicolas, freshly installed in a magnificent little half-ruined farm that


    Hi I'm looking for someone want to stay 1-month minimum. I'm working and I don't have time to welcome new people and explain how the farm is working. Maybe couple I could be interested. It's possible for me to leave the farm some days of the week. The only job I will ask you is to keep the animals and check all days and food and water. If you need more job to do !there Caravane with a little heater. If it's too cold for you you can sleep in house but there is no individual room. Don't hesitate to ask me your questions.





    I am trying to revive with all my heart!

    The program for this winter in a nutshell: Clearing, yes the brambles are stubborn ! I can no longer count the number of thorns planted in my hands!

    Today is the time for the garden. There are 3 pretty little pigs who serve as brushcutters and the land is just waiting for us to come back to life. To avoid being overwhelmed by the return of the brambles, I adopted 4 sheep.

    The project as will be focused on vegetable transformations mainly and when there will be a productive fruit orchard.


    You can participate in all kinds of tasks, mostly garden-oriented at the moment! renovation of old stone, masonry and regrooving well, fences, stream development and many country activities, and afterwards if there are merlin fanatics there is an astronomical amount of wood to be split and stored. Everyone should find their happiness!

    Ideally, we would like to have people who stay a week to find their place.

    Anyway, do not hesitate to make a phone call to discuss your expectations and ours.

    My schedule is not sure so don't hesitate to ask me in the last minute request !

    Nico

    Bonjour,

    Je suis Nicolas, tout fraichement installé dans une magnifique petite ferme à moitié en ruine que je tente de faire revivre avec tout mon coeur !

    Le programme de cet hivers en un mot: Défrichage, et oui les ronces sont tenaces, je ne compte plus le nombre d'épine planté dans mes mains !

    Aujourd'hui est venu le temps du jardin et de sa mise en place. Il y a 3 jolis petit cochons qui servent de debroussailleuse et le terrain n'attends plus que nous pour revivre. Pour éviter de se faire submerger par le retour des ronces, j'ai adopté 4 brebis.

    Le projet comme sera axé sur les transformations de légume principalement et quand il y aura un verger productif des fruits.
    Vous pourrez participer à toute sortes de tâches, plutôt axé jardin en ce moment ! renovation vieille pierre, puit à maçonner et recreuser, clotures, aménagement ruisseau et moultes activités champetre, et après si il y a des fanatiques du merlin il y a des quantité astronomique de bois à fendre et à ranger. Chacun devrait trouver son bonheur !
    Dans l'idéal nous aimerions avoir des personnes qui restent une semaine le temps de trouver sa place.

    Quoi qu'il en soit, n'hésitez pas passer un coup de fil pour échanger sur vos attentes et les notres .

    Mon emploi du temps n'est pas certain donc n'hésitez pas à demander même à la dernière minute !

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    For now I could suggest a location to pitch your tent. (I've got one to give you, matress and blanket too) If you have a campervan, caravan ... you are welcome. In the event of inclement weather, we will not leave you outside of course! There is a double bed in the office if you prefer and a part-time caravan (until june, then it's free)
    The place is very peaceful and you can meditate by the stream and take a nap in the grass when it is too hot to work.
    You will obviously have access to the bathroom and the toilet (dry or not). There is also a dry toilet work site planned in the garden soon.
    The house is very old with basic confort. It's old farm not an 5 stars Hostel !

    Regarding meals we are very flexible, from vegan to gluten-free meat. Even if we are careful to have a modest consumption of meat. All diets are welcome. (tell us just before we get organized).


    Pour l'instant je pourrais proposer un emplacement pour planter votre tente (je peux en preter une, et matelas, couvertures...). Si vous avez un van aménagé, caravane... vous êtes bienvenus. En cas d'intepéries nous ne vous laisserons pas dehors evidement ! Il y a un lit double dans le bureau si vous preferez, et une caravane occupée à mi temps jusqua fin juin.
    La maison est très vieille et le confort est relatif, c'est ambiance ferme ! Il ne faut pas s'attendre à un hotel étoilé !
    Le lieux est trés tranquille et vous pourrez mediter au bord du ruisseau et faire la sieste dans l'herbe quand il fait trop chaud pour travailler.
    Vous aurez évidement accés à la salle de bain et au toilette (sèche ou non). Il y a d'ailleur un chantier toilette sèche prévus dans le jardin prochainement.
