The Cara-Meuh! Farm is a family history since 1929

Initially milk producers from father to son, we decided, following the crisis of 2009, to transform this milk into delicious caramels, the "Cara-Meuh!". Certified organic since 2013, the farm is developing a productive ecosystem that respects the land and biodiversity with a vast reforestation project around the meadows. In addition to the cows, you will find beehives, a mobile henhouse called "Cara-Poule" and Bayeux pigs.

Over the years, production has diversified. The organic milk is now transformed into soft caramels, cheeses, butter, raw cream, faisselle, cottage cheese and Italian ice cream in summer.

On the site, you can also visit the milk museum, discover art exhibitions and enjoy a small animal park. There are two ways to visit: an educational tour open all year round and free of charge, and guided tours on booking In both cases, tasting is included! To finish the visit, the on-site shop offers, in addition to the farm's products, more than 60 local producers and craftsmen.

Ideally located near the Pointe du Grouin du Sud, you can enjoy a gourmet stopover. Picnic tables are available for visitors and a bar is open in summer, offering local drinks and farm delicacies. Open all year round, the not-to-be-missed date is September 17th and 18th with the traditional open house, now the Cara-Meuh festival!
