    Description

    We are La Ferme à l'Envers.. the upside down farm!

    Our certified organic farm is 60km north of Toulouse and just 10km from the nearest city, Montauban.

    We are Katrina and Guillaume, an international couple (Canadian and French) and we are living our farm dream. We have two daughters Kalie (4 years old) and Monah (8 months). Next is three cats, three (adorable) pigs, a flock of hens, and a couple hectares of market gardens that keep us not only busy but highly entertained :)

    We produce a diverse range of veggies all year round. Come in the spring and enjoy the sugar snap peas, salads, and green garlic. Come in the summer, you get the bounty of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers. Come in the fall, experience our crisp greens and mountains of squash, carrots and potatoes !

    We employ one full time worker throughout the year and one part time worker during the busy season.

    The farm itself is a living entity, growing and changing with the seasons and over the years, forever evolving with the contributions of all the wonderful volunteers we have coming by..

    Every summer we enjoy preserving our summer harvests and we are happy to share these valuables skills !

    We are also looking for individuals interested in helping out with our farm kids during July and August.
