We want to grow, learn and pass on to others, ideas and experiences to create an animal/crop rotation system that has minimal impact on the land and animals.

    The help required will range from, feeding chickens, goats,ponies and piglets, fencing, helping with wood, creating a vegetable garden, polytunnel system, organising the old buildings and land management, or some help in the house and cooking meals.

    What else ...

    We live within the Millevaches national park, and close to 2 lakes, lac de Vassiviere and Viam with many swimming beaches, which is the perfect way to cool off in the summer months. We are quite high, 700m above sea level, lots of places to walk, hike and and explore. Plus in Spring and autumn the forest is fantastic for looking for mushrooms and foraging.
