When the marsh becomes a miracle of life…

Once upon a time there was a farm like no other, to meet the earth and the water, where gray clay grows the thick grass, where the leaves of the willows shimmer in the harsh light of changing skies, where snake shaded races, black waters furrowed with furtive fish.

A farm that has areas of Christmas Arch, as we see different animal species and where horses reign as kings.
A farm, whose meadows and reed beds are also a paradise for wildlife.
A farm, finally, made to welcome all generations, to amaze them and teach them the simple things of nature, while being in a real farm.

Open from March 31st to November 2nd from 10am to 6pm every week-end, public holidays, as well as all school holidays in France (zone B and C), Belgium and England, and by reservation for groups throughout the year.
