  • Description

    Description

    We are a young family with 2 boys. We own a little farm with a lot a different animals, but our main herd is sheep. When we were 20 years old we went on a trip around Europe and decided to try workaway and this is how it all started. We worked on a sheep farm and loved it so much we decided we needed one. Here we are 8 years later owning our very own sheep farm to which we added many other animals. We also have chickens, rabbits, dogs, ducks, geese, alpacas and cows.We have a lot of work since we both have a full time job and since we just started this huge project. We wanted a simple life for our children (a lot of work but stil simple in our eyes) We always have a 1000 ideas and projects and only 24 hours a day to make it happen. We are looking for hardworking, passionate people who love being around chaos and animals. If you recongnized yourslef, You are very welcome to be part of this journey. We speak both english and french and would be more than happy to be able to travel through your stories.
