We are a very new family farm, started in 2013. I (virginie) grow all kind of vegetables, rare varieties as well as newer varieties for tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, melons and such in 700m2 of green houses and on a little less than 2 acres in the fields.

Most of the heavy work has been done but we need help with the day to day routine: planting, weeding and harvesting... and all the surprises and repairs that come unexpectedly on a farm. Alec does construction work on the barn and some mechanical repairs. We have a lot of big projects and a beautiful design for the farm with a lot of permaculture principles being in the mix BUT we also have to run an economically viable farm... france being france, with all its bureaucratic stuff.

The dream farm takes years to be built, in the mean time we throw a lot of good energy in the day to day work, and in the family work too. We have a lively two years old loving to grow on this land and there is a good community of organic farmers and of people in the area. We help one another when needed and are building a strong network.

We are looking for a single or a couple (with or without kids) to help us about 4 hrs a day, 5 days/week and who would stay for at least two weeks at a time. Our accommodations are simple but cozy: a nice trailer with the best view of the valley, a private semi-outdoor kitchen and bathroom with solar hot water, if wanted or we share our bathroom if the weather is a bit chilly. We could share all meals or just lunch if you prefer, even though we would stock your kitchen with good food.

Alec is american and I lived in california for ten years, we both enjoy all cultures of the world and would be happy to host people from all over. we speak french and english, a little bit of spanich.
