We are a 20 acre newly certified organic farm, having taken over the property after 3 years of neglect and dereliction. We require help with all aspects of improving and maintaining the farm and contributing to family life. We have lots of animals including dogs and cats and poultry, with pigs and sheep soon to be arriving, plus a large organic vegatable and fruit growing area. It is 2.5 km to the nearest village and 10 km to nearest large town. Bikes are available. Helpers with their own tents are more than welcome. We can collect from nearest airports or stations - Limoges, Bergerac.

Help around the house, help with the fruit and veg, animals and poultry is required, and those interested in renovating barns and bread ovens and bathrooms are also welcome. We plan to attend local farmers' markets, so help with that would be great.

At the moment, the farm house needs some work, but we can offer 2 double rooms and basic but clean bathroom facilities.

Owners are Audrey and John, both of whom are Scottish and Audrey speaks fluent French. Audrey is passionate about cooking, so good food is a feature of the stay, including local products and cuisine.

We hope to see you soon!
