The ecological shearing on the campsite

We’ve gone to green mowing. Because every year in the spring, the big machinery is back on line. Tractor, lawnmowers and cutters are back during the beautiful and sunny days to make the park all pretty in order to welcome our campers in the best conditions.

But every year in the spring, our professional conscience takes precedence over our ecological conscience…

For a long time we were thinking of eco grazing, in November we passed the curve! We are proud to present Cerise, Comète and Strawberry, our little ecological lawnmowers. Eva did not, of course, wait to baptize these three Ouessant sheep who seem to enjoy life in the Camping…

The sheep of Ouessant is native to Brittany, it is rustic, very often black, and is less than 50 cm in length. The sheep of Ouessant is one of the preferred breeds for grazing. This natural, environmentally friendly mowing method helps maintain biodiversity and reduce green waste while remaining educational and quiet …. or almost, because our three sheep love to communicate!

A big thank you to Léon for confiding us some sheep…

For the little eco-logical story, Leon is among other things, a beekeeper, he lives only a few kilometres from the Camping to Le Faulq. It has an orchard in which it grazes whiskers, thus avoiding the use of weeders on apple trees. Not far from there, Leon installed hives that allow bees to feed on and pollinate apple blossoms, making apple trees more productive, thus avoiding the use of fertilizer.
