The Experience

We are a group of three young farmers and a baby and since Nov. 2018, we have our own small farm in Southern France. But we are planning to grow, and that is why we are looking for people who want to help us growing vegetables, building stuff, taking care of a wonderful herd of cows, and have fun. We are pleased about any interest of yours, so just apply for our position!

This experience was life changing for me as I'm very used to life in a big city and this is the complete opposite. The community is extremely friendly and welcoming, I always felt comfortable around them. There are plenty of tasks to help them with, so you never get bored. The children are lovely, as well as the animals. Food was super good and in general I loved my time in the farm! No complains at all, I'm extremely grateful for their acceptance and friendship!

Dominik allows such calm and comfort at his farm, while also encouraging a range of fun and worthwhile tasks. I loved learning about organic farming, and here you have the opportunity to take from the soil and taste the end product! You'll never tire of hanging out with the many animals, either. Here, you can really make yourself at home. Everyone shares the space, we had many lovely dinners and movie nights together (and football… looots of football… you're welcome guys haha). Dom and Ole are great people to spend time with, it's rare you find such jolly Germans! Thank you for having me ❤️

This was a wonderful experience, I really can learn new things of the farm and taste delicious food. Anousha and Dominik are a marvelous couple with a deep compromise with their project and that's really admirable and at the end you feel inspired by their way of life. The landscape is beautiful and the convivence as well. I really recommended this to the ones who want a pause of the urban life and a breathe of the nature.

Mi experiencia en la granja fue maravillosa, me sentí muy bien recibida, es mi primera experiencia fuera de mi país y la verdad es que la familia es muy acogedora. Las tareas son algo pesadas pero el tiempo se pasa muy rápido, agradezco de corazón a Anousha, Dominik, Robby y todas las lindas personas a las que conocí, es una muy buena y bonita experiencia, no se arrepentirán de vivirla, una ves más muchas gracias por todo.
