An educational visit in an exceptional setting.

A typical "Clos-Masure" surrounds the grounds. The Clos-Masure is an earthen enbankment planted with oaks, beech trees, poplars and chestnut trees. The grounds include 20 hectares of orchards pastures, and gardens.

A beautiful, clear view of Etretat and its cliffs.

The livestock is made up of 60 ("Alpine Chamois") dairy goats and two billy goats. The herds are housed in spacious and comfortable barns and are let out in the pasture for six hours every day. Twice daily, meals consisting of alfalfa, hay, and straw are offered to the goats, and during the milking, which also occurs two times a day, a mixture of ground barley and kernels of corn is given to the goats as a reward for their creamy milk

At the end of your visit:
You will know everything about
the making of goat cheese,
and you will have the opportunity to make a purchase form our store.
