What it,s all about
01.08.2012 - 15.08.2012
Where do I even begin....
Well here,s a brief overview of the Moulin Neuf farm.
Dates of my stay: August 1st-August 15th , 2012
The moulin neuf is a very small farm close to Ivoy-le-Pré in the Centre area of France. It is owned by a woman named Dominique.
Dominique and her daughter (artist, costumer) reside there.
They have about 2 hectares of land which hosts a fair sized organic garden, a small field, 3 main buildings, a prairie for the donkeys, a small forest...
and basically it is just BEAUTIFUL here!
Buildings: Very old farm house buildings
Main house and 2 barns
I sleep in one of the barns in a spare bedroom it is quaint!
Bathrooms : dry toilets in the 3rd barn, great for the environment and not smelly because since they are dry there is no fermentation
with the water... excrement and wood chips is all you will find and this is actually composted
Animals: 2 donkeys, 4 cats, 2 dogs, 30something hens, 6 roosters... a wild pheasent that comes and eats in the garden..
and probably more!
Everything I work on is physically demanding and some of the most rewarding tasks I have ever done!!!!
More on this later.... pics to come
