  • Description


    We are a family run farm in central france, we have a little boy of 7 and many cats, one dog, 400 sheep 100 cows,chickens, two ponies and two horses.

    We have been farming here in france for 9yrs and my husband is sixth generation of farmers, I was a lecturer in FE in England and I do the running of the farm office and the farm work as well, we have recently took on this new farm and have some new projects we would like to start. As you can imagine it is quite busy most of the time but we still socialise and make family time. We are non smokers, and although like the odd beer or two or bottle of wine or two, ah ah, dont drink too much!!!!
