A traditional farm at the heart of Bresse, in St. Trivier de Courtes
The farm-museum is made up of 3 authentic 16th century buildings. The half-timbered farmhouse has been listed as a Historic Monument since 1930 and was built with natural materials found in the region. The visit presents traditional dress, local customs, objects from times gone by and agricultural machinery, and a short wander through the farm buildings will take you on a journey to another period altogether.
Dancing, folklore and the local lingo – here heritage lives on!
Learn how to weave hemp, hear the local dialect and dance along with the traditional folk band to the sound of the hurdy-gurdy. Every year the farm museum draws up a cultural programme for you to discover the crafts of olden times, and strives to keep the region’s traditional festivals alive.
