What you'll do

On my small farm, here in the French Pyrenees, you will have the opportunity to have a complete visit (2 hours 30 minutes) to earn how we breed, raise and care for these special, dwarf goats and babies ! It is for all the family. The programme will include learning how we care for the goats, what and how they eat, how we (and they!) communicate, how we clean their living spaces, how we arrange adoption, and more. We will together discover all my little goats in the open mountain. It is a very complete tour, we will see all the differents goats (dwarfs and toys, with or without horns ...). The explanations given will be adapted to the participants, it is a very educational visit for everybody. We will cuddle babies together, you will learn how to hold a baby in his arms and to feed him. We will also see them playing in their natural environment - a mountain meadow. We will talk about the daily life of the goat breeder: care of goats, food, communication ... We will talk about their character, the goat hierarchy, genetics ... We will advise you in the context of a possible adoption of babies (fence, shelter required ...). We will take all the kids in our arms, we will learn to put a sweater on the babies, we will feed the little toy goats which are the same size as the children (15-17inch), will talk about care, characters ( who is the leader in each group?) ... In 2h30 of visit, we have time to discover a lot together. Come and spend a fun and unforgettable moment with my little goats. Be prepared to beautiful photos of hugs with babies! See you soon,

As a passionate breeder of small goats, I would like to share my passion with you on discovery days in the open mountain environment. Here, where I breed and raise our dwarf goats, I work closely with the adults and their young. I have kids all year round. I will explain everything about feeding, handling, caring and selecting goats (and the different genetics).

Come and spend time with me on my farm with my adorable little goats. We will go from field to field and practice handling and caring for them.

Various workshops are offered: Get to know the goats. Food and Communication. Cleaning. Adoption. Breeding and Genetics.

2-3 workshops per visit.

An unforgettable experience for the whole family!

Je me suis rendue chez Maxime avec mes deux garçons de 10 et 12 ans. Ils ont adorés l’expérience ! Et moi aussi d’ailleurs. Nous avons été très bien accueillis et avons passé un excellent moment avec les petites chèvres ! Les garçons ont pu les câliner et les nourrir. Maxime connaît bien son sujet, nous avons appris plein de choses sur ces petits animaux attendrissants. Je recommande cette activité ! Au plaisir de renouveler l’expérience !

Authenticité et passion sont au rendez-vous. Expérience dépaysante pour un citadin comme moi, j'ai pu en apprendre plus sur le métier et sur ces passionnante et très attachantes petites chèvres. Les hôtes sont très sympathiques et savent partager leur passion et leur savoir-faire. Je conseille cette activité et pour ma part, si j'en ai l'occasion, je la recommencerai sans hésitation.

Nous avons passé un moment très agréable et avons pu découvrir le monde des chèvres naines. Maxime et Aline ont répondu à toutes nos questions et ont su nous transmettre leur passion. Leurs chèvres sont vraiment mignonnes et ne manquent pas d’amour! Ca donne vraiment envie d’en avoir chez soi. Merci pour ce moment de partage!

Expérience très originale ! Aline et Maxime sont très accueillants et passionnés par leur chèvres. Ils nous ont fait partager leur quotidien auprès d'elles tout en nous permettant de manipuler les plus petites d'entre elles. Après-midi sans superflu, au calme, toute en spontanéité ! À faire si vous êtes amoureux des bêtes !
