Hello from South Brittany

My names Paul, I live near Sixt sur Aff in south Brittany, I have 2000sq m of Garden, and at the moment i have 11 chickens, 1 Cockerel, 7 Ducks, 2 Geese, 2 Goats, 5 Jack Russels and 3 cats, the numbers go up and down depending on what Im buying/ eating, ( not the cats and dogs), Im trying to avoid buying birds and have bought an incubator, our first attempt at producing our own chickens is on the go.

Re: Hello from South Brittany

Welcome Starbrite!  Thanks for sharing your photos.  Those Jack Russell puppies are soooo cute!  My sister's husband is from Brittany.  I visited his parents on thier small farm and also went to  Concarneau and Pont Aven nearby which is where his sisters live.  What a beautiful area!  I love the video I took of his mother demonstrating how to make Brittany buckwheat crepes.  His parents have only chickens now and they grow most of the vegetables they eat.  They sold the cows to the farmer next door, so every day, he gives them fresh milk and of course, lots of butter.  I had never had farm food like that before.  It was one of the most memorable experience (for a city girl).

Yes Frenchie!  My Brother in law's mother makes the best and she has two big crepe griddles in her tiny kitchen.  We go to Paris with my husband's work each year and sometimes go to little Brittany crepe place that's family run, they had a dog named 'Caramel' who would visit while you ate.  Caramel passed away, but it's still a nice place to go.  Very homey.
