  • Description



    We will be happy to welcome you to our 4 hectares of land, nesstled in the foothills of the pyrenees between the Ariege and Haute Garonne on the outskirts of Montbrun - Bocage, a small but dynamic and alternative village.

    We are not a working farm at the moment but more of a diversity of activities which reflect our lifestyle.
    Our daily activities involve looking after the sheep, the experimental mushroom farm, the vegetable garden, the young fruit orchards, and the general upkeep and creation of the space (forest, river bords and relax areas).

    This summer/year we are looking forward to finishing a bio-climatic greenhouse, creating a small trout farm and building the stone walls, carpentry and roof of the future little house..amongst other things...

    English and French spoken, some german and spanish.

    Looking forward to meeting you...Esther and Ben!!

    Bonjour !

    Nous vous accueillons sur notre petit lopin de terre d'environ 4 Ha niché sur les collines entre l’Ariège et la Haute Garonne sur la commune de Montbrun Bocage, village alternatif très dynamique.

    Pour le moment nous ne sommes pas installés "agriculteurs" à proprement-dit mais avons une diversité d'activités .
    Nos activités se partages entre le soin aux brebis, l'entretien de la champignonnière expérimental, le potager, le jeune verger, l'aménagement de l'espace (forestier, bord de rivière, détente...).

    Plusieurs projets déjà en cours et à venir pour cette saison : création d'un élevage de truite familial , montage des soubassements en pierre et ossature bois de la future petite maison.

    Nous recherchons des personnes sérieuses et dans un état d'esprit proche du notre pour partager , échanger et créer sur cet espace.

    Un endroit calme en pleine nature, bordé d'une rivière rafraîchissante...

    Au plaisir... Esther et Ben !
