We look after a rare breed of sheep (90 ewes of the race Guirra) which we sell for lamb and reproduction, so we often need help looking after the sheep, lambing and hay-making. We do a big garden and have lots of fruit trees, many grafted onto wild rootstocks, chestnut forest. We have both studied permaculture and do the occasional edible landscape design. Accomodation in caravan(summer) or small apartment (dormitory),an excellent designed fully functioning compost toilet.
The Hamlet is situated in a beautiful area of the Corbieres mountains near a small thermal resort.There is a very popular hot spring in the river bed where people shower under the mineral water. January / February is lambing time. We could do with a hand during May to empty the barn and prepare for hay making. Then all of June until 21 July with hay making, mostly loading small(light) bales. This would 3 -5 hours a day depending on weather etc. We offer three meals a day. We eat a lot of our own food and buy in organic necessities and treats.We require all visitors to have their own medical/ accident travel insurance. A torch useful, and sleeping bag essential.
we love music, and enjoy a jam in the evenings.We look forward to meeting you! PLEASE PHONE. We are currently looking for help with apple picking, building agricultural shed and campsite facilities.
