On the programme: flower and fruit picking, bread-making workshops or strolls in a real field with farm animals… A quick metro ride and you are there!
countryside in Paris
Located only 500 meters from the station Saint-Denis Université metro station, this first farm was incubated and belongs to the Fermes de Gally collective. A must with kids.
Much more amusing than going to the market every Sunday, we take the kids to pick their vegetables and their seasonal produce such as strawberries or green beans, as well as picking apples and cherries from the orchard trees…
You are into flower power? You will enjoy the field of flowers that enables you to create your own bouquet of tulips and fruit trees.
Workshops in warehouses
In parallel, a series of workshops are organized for only 4 €.
Sign up your kids between 3 and 12 years old in a “bread workshop” to play at being an apprentice baker. During 45 minutes, little ones have fun and can bake their baguette to take home with them. Beginning with grinding the wheat and end with cooking the dough
You have a budding veterinarian? Let him follow the “animal care” program where he will be the right hand of the on-site keeper of the farm animals.
