Les Pousses Vertes

This is a small small scale micro-green and organic vegetable market garden. It is surrounded by lush countryside and there is a lovely little town nearby with all the amenities that you could wish for. Situated between two beautiful and historical towns, Limoges and Poitiers, it is perfect for getting away from the city but close enough for a day trip.

The farm is over 300 years old and has plenty of room for you to move around freely. You have access to the lovely natural swimming pool whilst also having the privacy of your own bell tent, shower, mini kitchen and dry toilet. In the winter we will move you indoors.

We are a young family who moved out here to live the good life. Our lives are busy with our young children and the farm but we also enjoy meeting and getting to know people from lots of different backgrounds and cultures.

Ed and Alex were amazing hosts, very welcoming, fun and considerate of our needs!! We loved working at a farm, the tasks are varied, so it never gets boring and Ed is always ready to teach you whatever you want to know about farming, we learnt sooo much for the little time we were there.
The location is very peaceful, in a cute little village not so far from the town of Bellac, where you have cafés, cinema, supermarkets (we got rides from Ed/Alex when we asked)! You would live in a cool caravan in their garden, next to their natural swimming pool !!!
Thank you Ed & Alex for everything <33

Ed and Alex are kind and generous people with adorable children. The family welcomed me into their home and took very good care of me during my stay. They are very passionate people with a goal to better the world, which is very admirable. They have a lot of knowledge and life experience to share, and I learned a lot from them about market farming, permaculture, and all that it takes to start up and run the farm as a business. If you are interested in farming, and are motivated and dedicated, this will be an excellent experience for you that I recommend highly.
