Bergerie nationale de Rambouillet
Located at the heart of the Rambouillet national estate, the Bergerie Nationale dates back two centuries to the reign of Louis XVI.
At that time, it was created to improve wool production and farming in France and to this day, it continues to serve for agricultural trials, training and innovation, involving and supporting farmers and applying a sustainable development approach.
Life on the farm
But that’s not all, because the Bergerie Nationale is also a working farm open to visitors for a fun and informative way of seeing what farmers do and how the animals live. Take a tour at your own pace or follow one of the guided visits held every afternoon. Depending on the season, there is a series of workshops and events for all the family: hand-milking of the goats, milking the cows, horse & carriage rides, taking care of the animals, shearing the sheep – including the historical flock of Rambouillet Merinos – Easter egg hunts and more! Enough to keep visitors of all ages entertained!
And don’t miss the new arrivals each year: the baby goats are born in spring and the lambs from September to February. And you can see calves, piglets, bunnies and chicks all year round.
Before you leave, stop off at the Bergerie’s boutique which sells a range of goods from the farm and other French farm produce.
Discover the Bergerie nationale de Rambouillet through one of the treasure hunts in the Paris Region Adventures application specially designed for families and downloadable free of charge.
