    Description

    Nature lovers and food self-sufficient, we are a large family of 6 persons, on the one hand the elders who live in the farm which dates from 1890 built in pebbles, earth, wood... historically it was first a stud farm then has become a workshop for raising Bigorre pigs, hens and force-feeding. On the other side, a wooden frame self-construction (to be finalized) in a grove as well as a permaculture vegetable garden and the creation of a bioclimatic greenhouse with straw (coming soon) and planting of medicinal plants as well as the creation of a dryer to plants.
    Property of 10ha cultivated in organic culture, cereals, straw, vegetable garden and orchard of the elders to be restored.
    We have chickens, ducks, sheep and goats which help maintain the farmyard, dogs, cats and pigs.
    We have other hectares of non-adjoining woods that allow us to have autonomy in firewood and wood that we use for construction.
    You will be able to take part in the activities of the farm, rehabilitate the orchard, creation of the bioclimatic straw greenhouse, creation of the dryer, planting of the vegetable garden in permaculture as well as medicinal plants, creation of a phyto-purification system.

    We adapt to the season and the weather as well as to family life, because above all we want to preserve a quality of life for our children and family well-being.

    We are bon vivants, love music, a piano and guitars are shared to brighten up our evenings, walks or bike rides and picking wild plants and mushrooms in season.

    Your animals can be welcome if they are used to other animals because chickens, etc. live freely with us.
