We are a couple who are living in near Toulouse and the Pyrénées, just at the beginning of the mountain (380m).
Blandine is farmer and Stéphane is pig producer.
We have a garden with vegetables and approximately 60 porks.
We sell our production to two markets in small villages every week and directly to the customers.
We also building ourself our house.
Here, we have also three goats, 2 dogs, 4 cats, a horse and a donkey.
What we ask from the helper :
The volunteer can help us 5 days a week and to take advantage of 2 free days to have a walk or rest.
The activities are diverse but
Mainly of the gardening to pick up vegetables and pulling weeds.
The building of the house specifically for the straw insulation.
About the accomodation :
We live in a mobil home and we have a caravan sometimes occupied by family members. So if the volunteer comes in summer it is better that he brings of what to camp (tent, sleeping bag). It is not the luxury at our home, we have a shower and dry toilets.
About the food :
We eat what we produce, essentially our vegetables and meat, we eat sometimes some meat which we buy to a friend, a producer in organic farming and also none organic food.
It’s important for us is that there is a good atmosphere.
