  • Descripción


    Micro-farm where we cohabit with different animals and plants and care for them. We are two people living here, with our agricultural activity (vegetable, fruit and flower production), Jeremy, 29 and Oriane, 30. Located nearby the Auvézère river in the area of Périgord Vert, department of Dordogne, the farm is right on the edge of the valley (10 minutes on foot to a quiet beach spot on the riverside).
    A general federating idea among us is to live accordingly to our environment, while making a living in the country and participating to its life, learning, doing and exchanging around with open eyes and ears and methods.
    Both of us are working with our production in the farm (fruits and vegetables), which we started here three years ago, and dedicated most of our time to it since - meaning we had to set aside some activities which we would now like to take up again. Sharing time with volunteers here will be a chance to develop non-'productive' sides of the farm (renovation, construction, autonomous vegetable and flower garden stetting,...) and of the forest surroundings (clearing, woodwork,...).
    With the farm located in a very rural edge of the map, one hour ride from big cities and half an hour from smaller ones, it would be better for you to have your own moving means (bicycle, hitchhiking, car...) so you can enjoy your stay along with your autonomy.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    From the farm perspective, you may be interested too in experimenting different approaches with natural gardening and eco-construction, craftwork, etc., and also we'd be keen on sharing around local and world music, hiking, cinema, podcasts, & more!!
    Also, if you feel like discovering social environment of the region, twice a week we attend the local markets with the products of our farm; on Tuesdays in the rural and lively Payzac village nearby (Concert every Thursday night during all summer!), and on Saturdays, in the multicultural market of Place Marceau in Limoges city, meeting with a warm and friendly atmosphere.

    There are many projects in the farm right now that we would like to retake, among which we will need help with :

    -Isolation and renovation of the flat neartby the barn;
    -Clearing of the attic and different storage places;
    -Clearing of different spots in the forest for the future installation of Kerterres;
    -Cleaning and mending of the ancient source and wash spot nearby the forest;
    -Construction of biodiversity hives;
    -Settling different ornamental/ biodiversity-aimed/ self-sufficient gardens;
    -Creation of painted coatings, murals..

    In brief, almost any project you find interesting to help us carry, as the possibilities here are plenty.

    Both of us speak English as we spent time traveling and living abroad before we met an settled in Périgord -Many months in India for Jeremy, and a few years between studies in Spain and seasonal jobs/WOOF through Europe for me, with some experience of teaching French (my mother-tongue), I'm glad to help with learning the basics / improving level/ conversation.

  • Alojamiento


    There is a caravan with accommodation for 2 or 3 people, with a collective kitchen nearby where we share lunch, leisure time or sometimes an evening 'apéro'.
    So far standards of living are basic : we chose dry toilet and solar shower, they're a keeper for obvious ecological concerns, nevertheless a process of upgrading comfort around the caravan and collective kitchen for instance is still on. Then if you are more of an outdoors person, and value a wild and beautiful valley environment and landscape more than coziness of accommodation for now, here could be your spot too!

    You can check photos on the internet of Saint-Mesmin Village (CP 24160) nearby, very prized spot for nature lovers to get an idea of how hiking rocks around here!

    We love our four-legged (or two legged for that matter, birds are welcome too!!) friends, only thing here is the chicken, geese and ducks run free around the farm so if you travel with a dog not socialized properly to them, we'll need to find out how it goes first; and if needed, help is right by the corner, with our neighbor who's a professional in canine training with positive education methods.
