We are two brothers taking over the family farm and turning it to organic production. We have cattle (~30 cows), various animals (chickens, 2 ducks, 2 geese, a dog and a cat)) cereal production (wheat and barley that we will use to brew our beer), an orchard and a vegetable garden big enough for our own consumption and to produce sirups, jams and surplus that people can buy self-service in the village.

We live in a beautiful region right between Lausanne and Geneva (40km away from both) and you would enjoy a beautiful view on the Alps and the lake of Geneva. As you see the village is not too far away from the civilisation ;) but it is also located at the bottom of the Jura mountain so if you like nature, trekking or biking you are at the right place.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for nice young and motivated people to help us in our various tasks that would consist in:
- Developing a permaculture field
- Animal caring
- prepare jams and sirops
And if you are ready for the following we would also be interested in:
- Creating a website for the farm
- Learning the guitar
- Learning or refreshing other languages
The accomodation is a separate flat with three rooms and a big kitchen. Smoking inside is not allowed.
For the food we would meet for the breakfast and lunch in the family house. For the dinner, we could also eat together but it could happen that you would have to cook your own dinner, with the food we would provide (from the farm or from the small grocery store that is next to our house)...
There is a nice zoo in the village
There is also a tennis court
If you like festivals, we are next to Nyon which is a city where a lot goes on.
