My aim is to establish an organic farm. The garden already has a variety of mature fruit trees and we have grown many vegetables for ourselves. There are ducks, chickens, dogs, cats, and a pigeon house. We also have 3 new puppies. One 50m2 greenhouse is for rooting aromatic plants (lavender, rosemary, thyme) and this needs careful attention. New seedlings must be prepared for next years. In the summer irrigation/watering is a priority; now we are improving the water supply and distribution system. My farmhouse has all the basic utilities (wi-fi, oven, refrigerator, toilet, shower, washing machine, TV) and there is also a large yurt (where I usually sleep when Iím on the farm). The nearest supermarket is only 15 minutes drive away, however there is rarely much traffic noise here. You will hear goat bells every morning. We need those people who enjoy real tranquility to read, write and think while HONESTLY + RESPECTFULLY providing support for us (Feeding the animals, greenhouse work, digging and sowing soil, weeding, making a natural hedge along the border fence, general maintenance is helpful and sometimes a bit of masonry and carpentry etc). We have had an unpleasant experience with helpers who thought simply having a holiday here was a good idea. Helpers need to contribute while they are here; this is so important. Those who are happy to stay alone on the farm, sometimes, are especially welcome.
