There’s even a farm in Paris – Video

I knew there was a vineyard in Paris but a farm?

If you feel like finding a bit of countryside in Paris? Take a stroll round the city’s farm! Located in the Bois de Vincennes, the Farm of Paris is an educational farm managed according to the seasons using organic farming. Free entrance.

It is a little piece of the countryside…in Paris! The Farm of Paris is open to school children and to all nature-lovers. Set up in the Bois de Vincennes, to the east of Paris, this farm holds calves, cows, pigs and other rabbits, hens, goats, horses, etc. – an unconventional way to visit Paris through animals and farm life. It also offers an introduction to the organic farming used on this farm. Events and workshops are also on offer for school visits. The farm in pictures

    Quelle histoire géniale, et les petits animaux sont adorables. Ce serait un endroit à ne pas manquer quand on visite le Bois de Vincennes. Idéale pour les excursions scolaires aussi.
