  • Descrição


    welcome to my sheep farm in South West France near Confolens.

    I am a 58 years young german women, living in France since 1997, operating about 80 ha where sheep and 8 retired horses graze almost year round out in the field. Most of our animals live outdoors , except those who have to be kept at times in the barns for different reasons, f. e. ewes during the lambing season or old horses in winter. To the farm crew belong also dogs, cats, chickens, guinea pigs and a pet billy goat called Maurice.
    My oldest daughter also lives at the farm in her own cottage.
    Animal welfare and respect of nature are very important for us, so we try to offer a good life to all the animals living with us. Running the farm to me is more than to earn a living. It's the special way of living and working with and in nature and with animals, It's not all about earning money, but to respect nature and to produce meat in a respectful and responsible way.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You can learn a lot about farm life in general and about sheep and horses in particular.
    There are many music events in summer in town, live music in bars, cinema, castles to visit, ....... (see more further down)
    Meet my french and english friends and find out yourself if there are many cultural differences.......
    We had already several workawayers staying with us and it was always very interesting and pleasant

  • Ajuda


    We welcome volunteers, who are motivated and reliable and who want to join in with our family activities.
    The sheep and the horses need to be looked after every day and in all weathers; The work on the farm is very varying and depends a lot of the season or the weather.
    You mustn't be afraid of becoming dirty or being in close contact with animals. You should also like to be outdoors and love nature.

    As most of our horses are retired, there won't be the possibility of riding , but they are very thankful for any kind of attention.

    There are also always building/renovation projects on my list. Rendering walls, improving the house, building a wooden lean to shed, repairing/ building new fences, .......

    Vegetarians are welcome, but as I run a sheep farm I suppose that may cause problems for a vegan person
