What you'll do

I suggest you dive into the heart of mountain agriculture for one go.
You will participate in all stages: pick up the herd and have it join the milking trailer, preparing for milking, milking the cows, ... And to enjoy this magnificent place for a while, a Savoyard aperitif will be served.
Other things to note
Milking cows in the mountains, no toilets on site, outdoors, warm clothes and non-fragile closed shoes ...

Originally from the Maurienne Valley, my grandparents lived in Saint Jean d'Arves and were farmers. My passion for cows and for the mountain pushed me towards studies in agriculture and in parallel, to pass my state ski instructor certificate. My life is punctuated by the seasons with skiing in winter and the rest of the year, cows.

Super expérience ! A faire sans hésiter ! Nous avons pu découvrir la traite des vaches et participer activement. Et nous avons redécouvert le goût du lait ! Du vrai lait ^^! Nous n’avons pas pu faire l’apero Dans la nature du fait du froid et des enfants que nous avions avec nous mais nous avons été accueillis chez Yann et son épouse. Un super accueil !
