Our organic truck farming belongs to a sustainable development framework, respecting our environment and favoring its biodiversity, as well as environment friendly materials and renewable energies.
It offers the visitor an ecological, natural and peaceful space, based on exchange, sharing and conviviality.
Situated in the Tarn, Midi Pyrenees, France, 50 km away from Toulouse, on the Montauban / Gaillac axis, we are in the heart of a touristic region, home to many beautiful medieval villages like Puycelci, Castelnau de Montmiral, Larroque, Cordes, Penne, Milhars, Bruniquel, Saint Antonin Noble Val and others, not far from Albi, classed since 2010 as World Heritage by the UNESCO.

Sports and other activities are possible nearby; canoeing, speleology in the Aveyron gorges, backpacking, fishing, unusual visits such as the Martels Gardens, the Gardens of Paradise at Cordes sur Ciel, Paris Vaissac miniature, the miniature train in Gaillac, hiking in the Sidobre and many other discoveries

The farm consists of a main house, 9 hectares of land including 3 hectares of woods.
Currently, we cultivate one and a half hectares of various vegetables (about 70 species to more than 300 varieties) that we sell directly (markets, subscription baskets, Biocoop, school meals).

Our organic farm welcomes travelers who want to immerse themselves in organic farming by providing assistance for field work in exchange for accommodation and meals. The aim is to meet people from all over the world, and to share experience.

Working in pair, we mainly need help in the fields: sowing, transplanting, weeding, but also preparing markets and baskets (picking and washing vegetables).
Eventually we are interested in a hand in the construction of a room to store and wash vegetables, and for working on the house (renovation with ecological materials like lime or hemp)..
We speak English and we offer accommodation in a caravan (for one person or a couple), with communal meals.

We'll be happy to answer mail for more information or if you have questions,
See you soon
