    Description

    It will be an other interesting summer. As the farm get more oriented, many building have to be build for the horse, the sheep and the hay. So many creative and diverse project where you can learn in the same time as me. Plus you get the opportunity of making bread, cheese, preserve, taking care of the animal, gardening. Ouf, it's never boring here, as I'm transforming that farm to become more GREEN. Deeply influence by the permaculture movement and those eco-friendly lifestyle our farm is always improving.

    The experience on the farm can be pretty fun as you will live with 4 busy childrens and some nice friendly animals, goats, sheep, yak, horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
    Oups, I forgot I also have some others smaller projects. Well if you are a motivated person that like busy family and who is not scare of new things, we are more than happy to host you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can learn a lot of things from making cheese, bread, lacto-fermented veggies, gardening, making toothpaste to building some outside shed, milking the goats etc. They will have a taste of a pretty country living. The family experience is obviously there and can be awesome. We are untraditional family who like to learn, experiment news things and become greener.

    You will stay in a clean trailer for sleeping. You will use the house bathroom for shower and will eat with us every meal. We are not strict but we don't eat that much meat and during summer we eat 85% raw food. But I am always flexible. I like if we share the cooking once in a while.

    There a the possibility during your time off to come hike with us, canoeing in some channel close to our place, take a bus to visit others town around, going to the lake with us or taking the bike and going to the river beach. That only if you don't have your car . If you have one, the mountains around are fabulous.
