Meeting with Boul

Born in 2013, Boul is a pig lover and the mascot of the old farmhouse.

The pig provided the meat, the fat and allowed the family to be fed all year round, just as the cow or the goat provided the milk and the chickens the eggs...

Feeding the animals

In the 18th century, animals, large and small, were indispensable on farms. Cows and goats for their milk, chickens for their eggs and meat, but also horses and oxen were used to work the land or to pull the cart to go to town before the appearance of tractors and other motor vehicles!

The sheep gave its wool to keep warm in winter.....

Today you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the farmers and get to know them better.

You will be able to participate in the feeding of the goats and chickens that will eat out of your hand, and you can even cuddle them...
