At the Deux-Vallées farm, in the hamlet of Tay in Hambers, Jacqueline Guy and her sons raise dairy cows. Staunch defenders of sustainable agriculture, they seek to maintain a balance between the preservation of their environment and the production of fodder for their animals.

With tours, workshops and seminars, they educate the public about their milk production and farm work. The recent opening of a gîte confirms their commitment to making the farming world of today more widely known.

Share the life of the farm

“We’ve set up a gîte in an old stone house in the hamlet. Families with children or grandchildren can now spend a few days with, ask questions, help us with our work and, if they’re lucky, even see a calf being born!

It’s our daily life, but so many people don’t know anything about the agriculture that feeds them.”

 

2000 YEARS OF HISTORY

“We live in a hamlet with a rich heritage, there’s a communal bread oven, a fountain, a hemp plantation and a château, we know the history stretching back nearly 2000 years. Tay is located on a pilgrim path leading to Mont Saint-Michel.

In the hilly natural setting of the Coëvrons, we promote a balanced agritourism. Our visitors discover the life of a farm, the wild fauna and the landscapes of the local countryside and its history. We really are blessed to live in such a beautiful region…”
