INTRODUCTION

La Chevre Verte is a goat farm producing gourmet goat’s milk and cheese for individual sale. Open to the public, it offers campsite (Gîtes de France) and also welcomes children for educational field trips (Le Chemin des Fermes).





Located on the edge of the Isle Crémieu, in the Pays des Couleurs, in the tiny hamlet of Marlieu, in the community of Bouvesse-Quirieu, La Chevre Verte faces the Bugey mountains.







THE FARM

The 45 goats are fed a natural diet of grass, alfalfa and hay, depending on the season, as well as barley, all of which are products of our farm.




With their milk we make cheese that we sell at the local markets in Crémieu and Montalieu , as well as in the farm. We also raise several pigs on the whey. the horses, on their part, pull the carriage or give us rides on nearby trails. The henhouse allows us fresh eggs and meat.






ACCUEIL PEDAGOGIQUE

 To share their passion for their job is very important at an age where farmers are fewer and fewer.
The children are welcomed in full-day and half-day field trips to “play the part” of the farmer: feeding goats, milking Mamousse, making cheese, visiting the other animals and visiting and learning about agricultural fields; are the main objective on these days.





The essential notions of herbivores, ruminants, and mammals are explained in a simple and easy to understand manner according the children’s levels.

CAMPSITE

In a big shady meadow, just outside of the barn, the  nature lovers alike can retire to the calmness and joy of being in the country.


In a family ambiance, one can swim in the pool, play bowls or participate in a ping-pong ball tournament, ride or walk the many trails that surround Marlieu, or shop at the local markets. The choices are endless for the campers, unless you just prefer to lie back and listen to the birds!
