What is it you do?
“We have a flock of milking goats and ewes plus a dairy cow. All our milk production goes into making cheese and dairy desserts, depending on the season. We have a small farm shop at the dairy, and stalls on various markets in the region, such as the farmers’ market in Forrières.”
What prompted you to seek "Famenne-Ardenne UNESCO Global Geopark Partner" status?
“We adore the region we live in. We have been doing our best to protect the environment for many years now. The Geopark could offer us the chance to protect and raise the profile of this beautiful region.”
What is your approach to sustainable development and environment friendly practices?
“We are not certified organic, but we never use chemical fertilisers or pesticides on our pastures, preferring to rely on flock rotation. We manage our flocks with every respect for each individual animal. Any antiparasite treatments are administered individually and only if absolutely necessary. The wellbeing of our livestock is our priority.”
