The farms to visit

To meet a region, you must discover its specialties. Here, we suggest you go to those who make our destination live with passion, our breeders, our producers. Ideas for farms to visit with your family, to the delight of children!

The farm

of Cazalous

South of Grand Figeac, on the Causse de Villefranche, this family farm is open to visit to discover the breeding of ducks in the open air. Bruno, your passionate guide, takes you behind the scenes of the production of foie gras, confits, magrets, fritons, etc. These quality products are offered to you for tasting following a 40-minute visit.

All summer long, the ferme des Cazalous also offers many festive events for the whole family: musical evenings, children’s entertainment, pétanque competitions, etc. Remember to keep an eye on the animations program!

The farm

of the Hulotte

On the Causse de Saint-Chels, if you see a herd of a hundred goats grazing peacefully, it might be Nathalie and Laurent’s. It is here, near the path to Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, that the milk harvested is used for the production of goat cheese labeled “Organic Agriculture.” Among the range of high quality products that you will be able to taste, the famous Rocamadour AOC, a small raw milk cheese of the cabécous family.

With family or friends, come and discover all the secrets of goat breeding and the artisanal manufacture of cheeses. On your own, you will be able to get close to the goats and discover the milking room of this family farm, where animal welfare, respect for the environment and the quality of the cheese are in harmony.

Galéga, the mare farm

of Pech-Blanc

On the Causses du Quercy, this farm, open to visitors, allows you to discover a very particular production, that of mare’s milk. Agathe and Jean-Baptiste will give you a warm welcome, and will be able to answer your curiosity about their activity. From the breeding of Haflinger horses to the making of soaps through the milking of mares, their work will have no more secrets for you. Once widely consumed, a few dozen breeders in France now produce this milk with its many verteins for medicinal purposes. Ecology and animal welfare are at the heart of the Jumenterie’s project, whose visit will be equally appreciated by older children and younger ones!
