    Description

    Hi !
    We are a Korean-french couple with two young children. We used to be commercial photographers. Jean-louis started his reconversion by studying organic farming sciences at the University of Kassel in Germany.
    We were living in Berlin before we moved to Sainte-marie-du-mont. my two sons were all born in Germany.
    We moved to our farm 2021 May. and now we have Cotentin Hens in mobile pens, Cotentin sheep and Normandy Geese.
    Heole the draft horse is a four years old Normany Cob, and Rose the border collie take care of us all.
    our farm concept is a regenerative agriculture project based on Silvio pastoral agroforestry, breeding endangered local farm animals and using animal traction.
    We are on the land of a former 30 hectares Haras, near the village of Sainte Marie du Mont 6 kilometer from the D-day landing Utah beach.The pastures and their edges are surrounding the beautiful farm complex constituted by the old farm court and modern barns and riding hall.
    As you can imagine there are many work to do in the farm, many projects are in development stage.
    at the moment we are fixing our sheep barn to receive new lambs for this winter. very exciting.
    I have two young children, 3 years old Léon and 1 year old Nino. we can discuss which project is more interring for you to do. can be any farm work to babysitting.
    looking forward to hear from YOU!
