  • Description


    We are paysans/ farmers eco renovating an old farm from 1830s and producing vegetables/ gemüse,a dozen+ sheep, and eggs. We have a few friends producing wine if you want to learn. I am particularly interested in low tech for agroecology, so just propose some ideas you want to test !

    We (early 40s) speak french, german, english and spanish and consider ourselves as "cosmopolite", interested to learn from your ways of living, and of course your culinary talents ! Our kids (<10yrs) are bilingual and love sports and music.

    Finally, for sure (south) Burgundy is famous for its wine, culture and food. It is a nice region for cycling and even sailing when the wind is in the right direction !
