Organic farm in the foot hills of the Pyrenees. Self-build ecological farm with barns, rain water cisterns, solar panels for both hot water and electricity. We produce our own vegetables and make vegetable spreads, and grow different kind of fruits and keep horses,we also do horseback riding for clients. We can accomodate helpers in a cabin with internet connection (out of season), or in a caravan, having also wifi connection. To participate for different tasks: making fruit juices, transformation in marmelades (specialization without sugar) make tempeh and other transformations.... we sell in the local markets. Also helping in the garden, woodland work,fencing, helping in the guest house,The main projects now are the construction of a traditional hammam with Superadobe and a gypsy wagon ("roulotte") with wood. We are a catalan family and particularly look forward to the cultural exchange with our helpers, experience is appreciated but not as important as motivation and willingness to learn. You can work with us the mornings so the afternoons are free to explore the countryside or relax. We share the meals together only the accommodation is in a independent cottage with internet available. French, English, Spanish and Catalan spoken. To see more visit our web site link above.
