The life-size agricultural world
The National Livestock Farm was created by Louis XVI. Today, it is a resource and training centre oriented towards sustainable development. The Rambouillet National Livestock Farm opens the doors to its farm. There is a tour to introduce visitors to the world of agriculture. In the farm, children can take part in interactive workshops. They can become apprentice farmers, milking goats or cows and tending to animals. While calves, piglets, baby rabbits and chicks are born on the estate throughout the year, goat kids can only be seen in the spring, and lambs from September to February.
The Rambouillet National Livestock Farm is also a conservatory for merino and other wool. It's home to the only French herd of the sheep that inspired the creation of the Wool Arts Festival. The National Livestock Centre is also home to a food exhibition and an equestrian centre.
