Come and lend a hand (and even try your hand!) at the ancient art of hand milking "au pachon" .
About "pachon" hand milking: The technique, employed in the past in the alpine pastures, still persists in the present day. It involves digging into the slope to create a flat place where each cow can spend the night tethered to a post. Thus allowing milking to begin bright and early in the morning.
