    We had a wonderful experience with our three-year-old. Well presented demonstration (in French) of the milking process, right in front of our kids' eyes. All kids had a chance to brush, pet, and admire donkeys up close. We were all completely charmed by the donkey ride and accompanying warmth of the hosts at the farm. Truly a place worthy of your patronage.
