Hi Guys :)

After a lot of travels around the world, being an helper myself and managing an Organic farm in British Columbia (Canada), i finally settled myself in france, in a farm (Ashnola Organic Farm).
The farm is located at the foothills of the Pyrenees, in the beautiful valley of the Baretous. It is just 20 minutes away from Oloron Ste Marie, 45 from Pau, an hour from Spain and less than 2 hours from the Atlantic ocean.
I am always looking for new helpers who want to share my life style, their stories and listen to mine, are not afraid to put some dirt on their hands, help with animals (chickens, rabbits, horses, cats and dog) and want to eat organic fresh food. Plus i do give a hand to my neighbors with their sheep (milking and making cheese).
According to the season we seed, plant, pick and pack and we go to the farmer market, and the basic chore of every farmer, some weeding :P
I like to work in the morning, 4 to 6 hours per day.
After that, the afternoon is for you, hiking, biking, visiting the area, going to the beach (there is a little creek at the farm, and i do like to go to the coast pretty often) ...
I am developping an activity realated to horse too, using Natural Horsemanship, so if you are interested to learn or share your knowledge, or simply ride, this place is for you :)
We share common chores (cooking, washing, sweeping,...), I love good food, a good glass of wine and to have fun. So if you are looking for a great place to stay, just send us a mail :)
