Surrounded by high stem orchards, through which cows graze, our farm is our place of work.
We are delighted to receive visitors to show them the work on our farm and the origin of our products.
The farm has been open to visitors for unguided or guided tours since 1995. It is located just 10 minutes drive from the sea (Houlgate and Cabourg).
Our educational farm is home to all the types of farm animals (donkeys, cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry). The visits do not have a set length (they generally take 60–90 minutes) and you can picnic on-site on one of our picnic tables.
We have been making cider-based products since 1991. Our products have been certified organic since 2013. The apple harvest and the organic cider-making, which you are welcome to come along and watch, take place in the autumn.
Bed and breakfast (traditional half-timbered house) is available as well as a gîte and a campsite.
Our farm shop stock all our products as well as those of the neighbouring producers (dairy products, jams, terrines, and honey from our own hives).
To visit us, follow signs to the La Forge lieu-dit, located between Dozulé and Annebault, then head towards Douveille-en-Auge and you will see our farm on the right. The farm can easily be located by typing “Lieu Roussel” into your SatNav.
