My name is Clotilde, I am French, my husband David is Irish and we have 2 lovely kids. We both have a passion for wholesome, home-grown & home-made quality foods. This passion has motivated us to change our lives and we have embraced a new lifestyle of working the land in an holistic/permacultural way in order to sustain ourself and a part of the community around us.
The farm is taking a lot of our time and we would need your help to look after the house, the garden and the children for a few hours everyday to allow us to get through our work.
We are rearing poultry on pasture guarded by 3 Pyrenean Mountain dogs and growing vegetables our big polytunnel. We also have several ecological scheme in place and it is very close to our heart to improve bio-diversity on our land.
