We are Polish/French couple living in an old farm house in Normandy. We have an organic dairy farm and a dog hotel. Our farm is placed in the middle of Parc Regional des Marais du Cotentin so we are quite far from big city life. The closest city is 12 km from our place.
We have lots of animals here, cows of course, a donkey, a poney, a horse, 2 sheep, two dogs and a cat.
Our native languages are polish and french but we speak between each other.
Cooking / shopping
You will be able to learn about organic farming and animals. Helping at the farm is great opportunity to get some manual and construction skills. We live in the midlle of nowhere but if you are person who appreciate open spaces and nature you will really like it. The sea is not that far neither, you can easily go there by bikes.
We have lots of projects planned such as building chicken house and glass house, fencing, permaculture garden, compost toilet, camping area, renovating the house etc. We also have to build shelter and paddocks for our horses. Depending on time of the year we might also need help with cows and milking.
