Information

About La Ferme de la Moricière:

There is a lot of history to this Manche family holidays location in Normandy. The Moricière family has owned this farm in the Manche area of Normandy for more than 200 years. Around the time of the French Revolution, they came to La Moricière in search of safety. Today, the family runs an organic dairy farm with a herd of Normandy cows and their calves as well as pigs, chicken, and goats. The interests of the family are wide-ranging, and they have much to share.

Activities on the farm:

The Moricières would be delighted to share their farming knowledge with you – especially the art of cheese making. This includes informed recommendations on the best local Manche cheeses to buy. The family’s own famous local cheese is the “Pont L’Evêque”. Allegedly first made by monks, it is probably the oldest Norman cheese still in production! They are also passionate about environmental issues in the area. As tour guides, the Moricières take small groups on foot across the extraordinary bay near here. Yves and Sylvie also love restoring old buildings using organic and eco-friendly elements, such as bricks made from raw material. The honesty shop, “le Cellier”, and the three individual hot showers are a charming example of these techniques.

Sons Thomas and Clément know all the best secret play areas on the farm where the children can build dens. You’ll be sure to meet Toupie the farm dog who is not the best help with the cows but is very friendly (the family rescued him at 6 months old) and Bidouille the cat who has yet to catch a mouse! There is always something happening on this farm holiday to join in with, such as wooden fence mending, firewood chopping, and organic vegetable gardening.

The Moricières would like you to think of your stay with them as a cultural exchange. Using a combination of English and clear French to communicate, all will know each others’ languages and cultures a little better!

Do not miss beautiful villages on the coast such as Genets and Dragey-Ronthon and the beach at Saint-Jean le Thomas.
