We are a family of 4 people and we live on a farm in the Loire valley (center East of France). My husband Jean Michel (58) and myself, Odile (52) are farmers and we breed charolais cows in a sustainable way. We have two children, Emmanuel (13) and Marie Eve (8). We have a very friendly dog, and 8 cats, 65 cows and a few hens.
We have a bed and breackfast in our house and we sell product from the farm directly to the customers, mostly meat (and vegetables during spring and summer).

We are looking for 1 or 2 volunteers that could help us 4 hours per day from 2 weeks to a month. We have room for more people, so if you are a family, you are welcome here !

Their tasks would be mostly taking care of the animals (mostly feeding the cows), rebuilding some old fences, choping wood, fixing tools or gardening around the house.
We always have something going on here, anytime of year. Jean Michel and I really like to show the crafts techniques we use to people who are keen to discover and experience it.

As an accomodation we have 2 spacious individual bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and our house have free access internet. Our house is big and there is space for everyone in it :)
We will provide all the food (that mostly comes from our own production) and share the meals with our helpers.

Our farm is the perfect place for those who like nature and who want to experience and learn the tipical way of living on a french farm.

We really enjoy hosting people and sharing the day to day family and farm life with them. We love to share and teach how to care about animals on the farm, how to grow vegetables and how to cook the traditional local dishes. There are also a lot of authentic villages around and a great architectural and gastronomical heritage that we will be happy to show to our helpers.
We don't get to travel that much, hosting people from abroad makes it possible for us to discover new cultures, different way of living.

Coming and join us doesn't require much experience, just motivation and happiness !
Hope to see you soon on our farm :)
