  • Description



    My name is Eric. After travelled the world thanks to my job, I moved to New Caledonia 20 years ago.
    In my proprety near the river in the middle of the low mountains, I built an ecologic farm.
    My entire production is certified organic; ducks, pigs, bees, fruit trees, chicken and a permaculture garden.

    I aspire to become one day self-sufficient. I am already autonomous energetically since the water comes from the river and from a local spring (drinkable water) and we got solar panels.
    I am producing my own meat like charcuterie, sausages, pâtés, rotis, brochettes from the ducks, the pigs and the deers.
    We have wild deers around so I am used to go hunting.

    I want to share my passion for animals, nature, plants and produce fairly (to protect earth).

    I used to meet different people through my old job and I want continue to exchange and meet people. It's really interesting and rewarding.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    At this moment the realization of a babecue spot is in progress.
    It will allow to meet, to dialogue, to play music and why not savor a Caledonian deer steak.
    We also have to rehabilitate plot fences and ford crossings.
    We are in the hot period and the beginnings of afternoon are dedicated to a nap at the edge of the river to rest and refresh.
