    We are Louisa and Stuart, Harmonie and Phoenix

    We are a certified organic farm in the Gers, France . We raise a rare breed pig called the Porc Noir, which is a slow growing black pig. We currently have 18 pigs, 30+ chickens ,7 dogs, , and a couple of geese .

    We are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, only 3.5 km away from 2 little villages with all facilities including lively bar and restaurant, 12 km from market town and 30 km from large town with big commerce.

    The farmhouse faces the Pyrenees mountains( 1.5 hours away) and is situated in the middle of 120 acres split in 3rds of which is woods/prairie and arable.

    We are semi self sufficient, providing organic meat and vegetables and food for ourselves and our volunteers from the farm. We transform all our meat ourselves, as well as making pâté and black pudding, saucisson and charcuterie which we sell to the general public, supply for weddings and night markets . Louisa has previous experience working in the cheesemaking and butchery industry and has just completed a year's French culinary qualification. Louisa also ,runs cooking, butchery, cheesemaking, meat , fruit or vegetable preserving workshops from the farm.

    We are looking to set up a wedding catering business in 2022 using farm produce ' Farm to Table' as much as possible. We also started up a youtube channel during Covid Lockdown so that we could share our knowledge of organic gardening, permaculture and cooking.

    We are looking for people to join us with our various projects on the go throughout the year. You will need to have a good level of physical fitness to volunteer here. Any skills such as carpentry, electricians, building skills etc are always very welcome however the most important thing is an open mind, positive thinking and a willingness to get your hands dirty.

    The work exchange we offer is in the similar veins as wwoofing where there is no financial exchange, however what we do offer is being accepted into the heart of our home and family, accommodation , food and free training in all aspects of farming ,food transformation ,self sufficiency and permaculture. Volunteers are not asked to work in a business aspect here

    This is primarily an English speaking environment, although we can speak french it is not often used unless we have French speaking guests. We are open minded and easy going. There is never a dull moment here.

    Please note, if you are travelling with pets, I'm sorry but we cannot host them as we already have 7 dogs!

    This is an LGBTQ+ friendly environment

    We are looking for volunteers from 20 July for 2 weeks this summer. Thank you
