  • Adorable people a warm welcome even so great is that I have read... products! A very rewarding visit! Of hygiene rules (because Yes for people who don't know there are hygiene rules!) have to disinfect hands and feet! Do not touch the goats and Yes! We could their given numbers of microbes! Has two visits per day from roughly 10 person for a whole summer? If you count his little do many microbe! and lab closed by evidence of impeccable hygiene windows! Very nice owners has that life nothing spared! In any case very disappointed to see people the broken as much as they do that worked and make live their little farm and take care of their goats while transmitting their love for the craft! They are very nice people! And I Board strongly that farm! So much for hospitality for the products.

  • The farm is located on a lovely hiking trail. We stopped there, intrigued by the "ice to the goat whey" poster. Bad we took! The person who owns the store is the embodiment of the stereotype of the Normandy cheapskate. You have to pay for taste, for a small extra spoon, for a plastic bag... Icing on the cake: while we had bought several products, I allowed myself to ask if there was a toilet on the spot (I remember that it is a place open to the public and organizes guided tours). I was told that I had to go to the public toilets of the beach of Etretat (located 30 min walk)... Not shopping at all.

  • PRODUCTS great but... If you do not know the taste of goat milk chocolate, forget the good intention of the shopping. No No, it will not cut a chocolate (even "nature") for a mini tasting. So to know the taste of the product, you put your hand in the Pocket and get €1 to put chocolate on the palate. Oufff! We love, and we'll take for us and our friends. A few months later, back to the Valeine, because when you love it... Have left a lot of money... not always in. a lil shock for the road... The worst in all this is that we will resume products of the Valeine, well aware that it will be no small gesture of Madam the merchant and his smile...
