    Description

    My husband, 3 childeren and myself, we have an organic farm in Loppem, near Bruges, Belgium. We grow vegetables and fruits which we sell in our own store. We took over the business from my parents in law only this year and now we are trying to expand. But loads of work need to be done for which we seek help.

    Help

    There are so many things that can be done at our farm. If you love to garden, you are free to help us with our vegetables and fruits. If animals are more your thing then we have 6 cows, chickens, a cat, a rabbit and some turkeys that need attention. The 5 of us is a large household so if you are into cleaning, organizing, you can help out here. We intend to extend our business and therefore we want to build a new barn with stables, so maybe building is your thing. We use all natural materials in building our home, so you can learn about that if you want to. Even if you want to do a bit of everything, you are very welcome!

    We can offer you a private bedroom and bathroom in the barn next to our house. You will also have a kitchen and sitting area but those areas will need to be shared when our shop is open (twice a week) and if we entertain groups (about twice a month).
