We are a family of seven on a large farm in the country. We are open-minded, we live in a good cool atmosphere. Strictly non-smokers, vegetarians, atheists, we prefer to talk and enjoy nature rather than watch television. But we are not wild though, we enjoy concerts, evenings with friends, and Netflix for winter evenings ;-).

We produce fruits and vegetables labelled "Organic" Agriculture.
We sell our fresh produce directly on the markets of the surrounding villages, as well as canned food via the internet on our website.
We also raise goats.
