Hi, This is a real challenge for you !!!
We are trying to renovate the farm and run it at the same time. It is not easy. It had been abandoned for a few years. We started with a few chickens and rabbits, now we have goats, sheep, a donkey, lots of birds, a huge fowl unit under construction, clearance of the ground - brambles and stinging nettles all over ! as well as a bit of a garden. The project of a small business is hatching, but I have to start a year's course to obtain a status of a farmer. So I need help with the morning chores, not really anything else, although participation in all aspects of life tending to be self sufficient muchly appreciated ;-). The morning chores include:
-preparing the breakfast faire for the 2 pigs, 10 goats, geese, ducks, chickens, rabbits; the sheep and the donkey have all-you-can-eat buffet in their 6 ha field behind the house; distributing hay to those who eat it, some straw to make everybody comfy- as needed, topping up water for everybod... more inside

Bonjour!
We are a Dutch family running a certified biodynamic dairy farm in the Mayenne region. We enjoy our simple lifestyle, working with the nature, tending to the the cows, meeting new people and raising our family here.
Apart from the farming aspect, we also have a cheesery where we make our own gouda, a shoppe where we sell locally made bio products (our cheese, milk, local wine, vegetables, bread, etc), and a small campground which runs from May to September. During the summer we are hosting a 10 day art festival, where participants work on the farm and connect with nature and then collaborate on something creative together.
We have 4 children, two in their early teens and two in their twenties (the older ones live here from time to time), two workers coming during the week to make cheese, and lots of animals! 60 cows, some sheep, a horse, peacock, chickens. Plus a garden, vegetable and herb, and some fruit trees to take care of.
We can host you during spring and summer, ... more inside

Nous sommes propriétaires d'un site touristique troglodytique et nous avons besoin d'aide pour les visites (en anglais particulièrement) seulement l'été : Il nous faut 1 personne en juin et 2 personnes en juillet et août (5 au total). Chaque personne doit rester, à peu près, le mois complet.

We are a friendly English family living in the Mayenne area in France. We run a small gite/B&B business and have had some lovely reviews.

During the horrendous storms at the end of January beginning of February a small stone old house which was the horses stable was blown down. We would ideally like someone to help reconstructing another building hopefully at the end of April beginning of May. The horse fortunately was not hurt and we have since made him another stable in the field.

We would also like to put a Summer house in the garden so if someone is handy with the hammer and nails would be perfect.

Also from September onwards it would be lovely if we could have some help as we are renovating a house for us to live in and could do with some help from anyone who has building experience to make two large fireplaces, do some plumbing or help with the rewiring please. In return you would have the use of an en-suite showerroom, there is a bike you can borrow and all yo... more inside

I have a very large garden but am looking this autumn to plant a maze and specifically need help with that. So lots of tree planting. I really need someone or two friends, who don't mind a bit of hard work and can use petrol strimmers, hedge cutters and a spade. So that's the downside.

In return I offer you private accommodation. Not the ritz, but clean and tidy and Internet.

We have horses dogs cats and lots of countryside.

Matt (28 yo) lives in a renovate cottage (500m2).
Matt likes sharing experiences, life, travels,...
The house and garden are too big just for Matt.
He wants to develop an "artificial garden", and to have animals (sheep, ...). But for this, he needs help and Council. :-)

For 1 night or 1 week or more, come share experiences.
