We are producing most of our own consumption of vegetable, cheese and meat (10 sheep, 1 goat, hens, rabbits, turkeys) in a small farm in a nice countryside of Brittany, between Rennes and Nantes, 1 hour drive to sea. We can provide advice and formation in organic gardening and livestock breeding, bread and cheese making, language teaching etc. We try to enjoy life without taking us too seriously! I am an environmental scientist and my wife is a painter, we are interested in exchanging views and stories on many subjects. We also have a piano in want of players. We have a long experience of hosting all kind of people : students, helpers, friends...This is, most of the time, delightful, and when it's not, it teaches you something and makes good stories to tell!

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Anna has an experience in teaching French, German and English as foreign languages.
We can teach the basics (may be a little more...) of organic gardening, bread and cheese making, livestock breeding, self construction...
Help in gardening (weeding, pruning, trimming, soil preparation...) , animal care, small constructions, general maintenance of the house and tools; help in household...we are very flexible with the time and organisation of the work. We sometimes also take helpers to take care of the house and animals when we are away.
Different possibilities of accomodation, depending on the season (one bedroom with private bathroom, some other beds here and there, many nice places to put a tent, and always good food!)
We prefer not to host people with very strict dietary requirements. Vegetarians are very welcome (actually we often cook without meat) but hosting vegans and people with multiple food allergies or intolerance is just too complicated in terms of day to day organization. Sorry about that.
