The Experience

We love food, good ingredients and turning them into something delicious. Our son Nol (19) is becoming a chef and wants to learn from professionals. If you have education in cooking and/or serious experience to help him professionalize, please apply! We will provide you with fun and good local, in-season ingredients. We ferment, bake bread & cakes, we butcher, make fresh pasta, sausages, smoke fish & meat, cook on a wood stove, gas or open fire.

Meeting Barbara, Peter, Nol, Fleur, and all the wonderful cats, dogs, and chickens at the project was an enriching experience. I felt like I was a part of the family. The knowledge I received is something I will definitely be implementing in my own personal life. This was definitely my favorite volunteer experience, and I hope to return again one day.

Peter, Barbara, Noel and Fleur, Thank you for opening your home and farm and forest for me to be experience. I really enjoyed trying to master the wood fired oven and cooking eating and having a few drinking together. A great collaborative experience with Noel who was open and engaged in learning and sharing new cooking experiences. This was my first volunteering experience and was lucky to have been involved with such a nice family and also to meet there great friends who I worked on a few small projects with. That's you Tom, Werner and Stephan

I had a wonderful month at the project, spending time learning, gardening and relaxing in nature. The property is beautiful, the food is delicious, and having my own bus to sleep in was a treat after so much time on the road! I ended up being the only volunteer (unusual) so did sometimes miss interacting with people my own age, but it was also really nice spending more time with the family who are very welcoming and friendly 🙂. I really enjoyed working with Barbara, and her enthusiasm and positivity is a joy to see!
