Hi!
We are a retired English couple who came to live in the SW France in the summer of 2007. We have been gradually renovating our small farm since then.
Our property is situated in the sleepy Charente. 60km north of Bordeaux and 45km south of Angouleme. We are located in a very rural area which has prolific wildlife including boar,several species of deer and an amazing array of birds of prey. At certain times of the year the Golden Oriolle and the beautiful Hoophoop bird are to be seen.This year we have even had a Nightingale nesting close to the barn.
Our farm is within 15 minutes drive of a popular etang (manmade lake and beach) with its large Sports Centre,complete with all equatic amenities,fitness room and squash court,bar and cafe which is open all year. There is also a very popular restaurant which overlooks the lake,though this is closed from November through to March.
We have 6 dogs, 9 horses/ponies and 3 cats plus numerous chickens and ducks.
Our main discipline with... more inside

Our farm in SW France is devoted to our rarebreed pigs. We have a herd of Berkshires; Middle Whites; Oxford Sandy & Blacks and a lovely Tamworth. They all live and farrow outside. We feed them twice a day with local petit lait (whey) and our own cereals.

We also sell our pork to a wide range of customers in our community - we have a farm shop but mainly attend the local market to sell.

Fun hard work but rewarding. We have many on going projects from building new paddocks for our pigs and general maintenance work around the farm. Gardening is on the back burner and we would dearly love someone to come and give our farm that little bit of TLC.
