    work with felix:

    "Limousines" cows are outside all year long. they spent their life eating grass( they do not eat crops or fermented grass) , scratching and gamboling. i raise them for the meat.
    my farming system uses very few inputs, but requires outdoor work

    I need help with the domestication of cows, fences, cutting weeds with a scythe, births, keeping the cows, diging, chopping wood, fencing, training the donkey...
    I do not use modern machinery a lot, and you would not use it also.
    in summer, cows care does not requires so much time.

    Volunteer work depends of the season.

    You don t need to be skilled on farming , fast and hard worker or have good knowledge on countryside living, but WE ASK YOU TO:
    -try to do your best.
    -be curious and interested about farming.
    -be not too much afraid of cows and baby.
    -independant or find your own activities when i don t give you something to do, you must be able to cook and tend for yourselves.
