27 May 1992 opening of the old farmhouse
Jacques and Michel Guyot, two heritage enthusiasts, bought the then abandoned Végère farmhouse in order to revive its past through visits, animals, and to rediscover the gestures and traditions of our forefathers.
They hire Florence and Xavier, who are just 20 years old, and leave them in charge... the challenge begins.
Xavier is trained by a master blacksmith and learns the gestures of blacksmithing and farriery: 1st animation, the forge
Very creative, he will create a lot of other animations that will bring back to life the ancestral gestures of our grandparents, milking cows, ploughing the fields with draft horses, ....
The Mas de Vegere changes its name to "The Old Mas".
Creation of the first theme day which will be followed each year by a new one in order to punctuate the visit with highlights: egg hunt, pig day, old-fashioned bull run, old-fashioned harvest....
