    Description

    Hello! We are a small family organic certified farm. We produce goat's milk and transform it into cheese. Our farm also includes vegetable gardens, flowers and herbs, laying hens, bees and two Fjords horses. We speak French at home and can translate into English and Spanish if needed.
    We are a dynamic and community-based family (always around 7 people aged 19 to 50 at home: friends, roommates, children, volunteers ...) who love to interact with people and make music (and sing!).

    Bonjour, nous sommes une petite ferme familiale certifiée biologique qui produisons du fromage avec le lait de notre troupeau de chèvres. Notre ferme comporte aussi des jardins de légumes, fleurs et fines herbes, des poules pondeuses, des abeilles ainsi que deux chevaux Fjords.
    Nous parlons français à la maison et pouvons traduire en anglais et espagnol si besoin.
    Nous sommes une famille dynamique et communautaire (environ toujours 7 personnes de 19 à 50 ans à la maison: amis, colocataires, enfants, volontaires...) qui aimons échanger avec les gens et faire de la musique (et chanter!).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    At home you can learn a lot if you want: take care of animals in the way "Bio", treats goats by hand and the milker, making leavened bread, making laco-fermentations, install and maintain a self-sufficiency garden ... You will also have the opportunity to live a friendly French-speaking family atmosphere and to taste organic and local cuisine.

    Chez-nous vous pourrez apprendre beaucoup si vous le voulez: prendre soin des animaux de la façon "Bio", traite des chèvres à la main et à la trayeuse, fabrication du pain au levain, fabrication de laco-fermentations, installer et entretenir un jardin d'auto-suffisance... Vous aurez aussi l'occasion de vivre une ambiance de famille francophone conviviale et de goûter à une cuisine biologique et locale.

    Taking care of the animals will certainly be the thing you will do the most, but we also need help with the garden, cooking and taking care of the house.

    Prendre soin des animaux sera certainement la chose que vous ferez le plus, mais nous avons aussi besoin d'aide pour le jardin, cuisiner et prendre soin de la maison.
