Why did you choose to become a farmer?
I first practiced my profession in the hotel industry, then I made the choice to stop to take care of our children. Subsequently, in 2010, I took adult training in the agricultural sector in order to settle down with my husband.
Located not far from Mende, in the village of Barjac, our farm is specialized in breeding Brunes. Cows with a calm, curious and docile temperament. They are beautiful, and their dairy qualities are very good.
Why did you create a gîte (cottage)?
Our last project was to add a tourist activity on the farm, with the objectives of: to make known the profession of farmer, to put a foot in my profession, to rehabilitate the existing heritage and to make known the Lozère!
The cottage opened in June 2015 and bears the labels Gîtes de France and Tourisme et Handicap. It is an independent house with all modern comforts, in a quiet and green environment.
