Hi everyone!
I'm moving to Brittany some time this year and was wondering about casual work like farm labouring, building etc.


I'm hoping to become mostly self sufficient and have a smallholding to sustain me, with a few livestock like chickens, ducks and maybe a pig or two, also to grow a lot of what I need to live.
I realise that I cannot survive without cash and was wondering of the availability of work.

I've been in the building industry for 30 years and am efficient in plastering, electrics, groundworks, drainage, roofing, bricklaying etc and all associated work, but obviously most of Brittany is sparesly populated and is mostly arable, so I'm prepared to do farmwork etc, but won't need full-time employment.

I'm learning French after reading on here that it's a good starting point and I'm not doing too bad with it.

Thanks for reading.

Hi, Good luck with your impending move, sorry I cannot offer any information with regard to what that availability of work maybe in your chosen area however, if you are doing well with the language and are happy to attempt to integrate with the locals then I would hope you may find what you are looking for and wish you every success in trying.

All the best
