Hello we are a Dutch family that lives in france for over 5 years . we love farming and like to share our experience.
our family consists of bart renate and four children lianne marjolein jochem daantje . we live in a smal house that was formerly a train station. we have a large area for the animals. we live next to the old track that has now become a green avenue. there you can enjoy walking and cycling.
we have a lot of smal animals like a dog, a cat , fish, rabbits, quails, different breeds of chickens, turkeys, ducks, sheep, a horse and a cow. we tray to bread the animals. we have a vegetable garden. we take care of the animals twice a day. and of course the dog more often. we feed the animals give them water. pick up eggs. we change the stays once a week. occasionally I make butter and buttermilk, and cheese. we go driving riding the horse. we think it is important that the animals are well. and that we enjoy farming. there is always something fun to do
