  • Description

    Description

    Our micro farm is located in a small village of the Blavet's valley completly in the countryside but at around 30km from the Morbihan's Gulf beaches and at a few km from a leisure park. We often go to the river or the beach when it's too hot.
    Our small family leaves together regrouping grandparents, parents and children who can help each others.
    We raise sheep, pigs, chicken and ducks in the middle of vegetable gardens and green houses under the eye of 3 big dogs who are very kind!
    We have prefered permaculture and oudoor breeding because we can't stand the use of pesticide and seeing the animals shut in.
    You would only help with private home and garden and food for our own consumption not produce for sale .

    We will welcome you in a confortable renovated mobilhome for several weeks or less in order to share farming techniques or breeding and to share tasks like feeding, fenced repairing, picking etc..We would also share lunch or dinner, according to our planning but always with something to eat in the cupboard/fridge and in a good atmosphere.
    We would like to promote cultural exchange and we speak English/Spanish that's why we would welcome foreign people with interest! We could learn a lot from each others.
    To do well, we would prefer a dynamic and motivated man, from anywhere, with minimum experience.
    A coronavirus test less than 72h is needed.
