The Experience

Uncle Ruud is the founder of the Catfarm and has alzheimer. He will have a nurse to come and take care of him; furthermore, the French healthcare system is not too good. So we'd love you to come and entertain Ruud and sometimes get him out of bed or help him change his clothing. We are searching for someone that would like to help us out with this urgently, kudos earned if you can make it.

dear cats, I know it was a few days, but as Dani said, short but intense, after 10 days I'm going on a trip to London, and I have a feeling that I'm going to miss this place, this incredible landscape that I'll have to go back to to photograph , unfortunately I was able to only participate in two projects, I would like to be part of all of them, even those who are only in imagination. I wish the best for Ruth, Chris, Manu and all the others that are staying, I hope to meet you soon and have good new stories to share.

It was a beautifful experience. I loved community life, work, daily routine, people. It's always about people... They treat you like a family member and you can rely on all of them. Thank you cat farm for this amazing experience: singing near to a bonfire, playing boardgames, disscusions we had, delicious food we made, crazy things we did - everything!:)

A CatFarm está se estruturando como uma EcoVilla e conta com a ajuda dos viajantes para a construção dos seus projetos. Dormimos em tendas e há uma contribuição diária de 5 euros para café da manhã, almoço e jantar vegetarianos feitos pelos próprios voluntários (cada dia uma pessoa é responsável por cozinhar). Pude escolher em que atividades participar a cada dia, e sempre havia muito o que fazer - desde de limpar o banheiro até trabalhar na 'horta' (na época ainda estávamos plantando as sementes). As pessoas eram muito positivas e amigáveis.Recomendo!

I absolutely love the cat farm!! It is such an accepting group of travelers. I love learning new skills from other people and eating some delicious vegetarian food. We sit around the camp fire almost every night and talk and play music, it's amazing to hear so many great ideas and be able to share some of my own. I'm really going to miss all of the people I met at the cat farm. I will highly recommend the cat farm to anyone who will listen. I wish all of you luck in the future

The Catfarm is one of the best places you could possibly go to. If you like good music, good food, and good people, you'll fit in purrrrfectly. The work was really enjoyable, especially since it was paced very well throughout the day (start around ten, get a few hours in before lunch, take a few hours off while the sun is out, and finish up before dinner). Even though it was an English-speaking community I found plenty of opportunities to practice my French, and the off-grid location still allowed us to take trips into the city.

Basically if you're even considering coming here, do it.
