Goat fair taking place this Sunday in Saint-Front

Massif Central’s Goats have been held since 1999. The next edition will take place in Saint-Front this Sunday, July 17 with a garage sale, country market and contest agriculture, all punctuated by a number of facts.

To see, the most beautiful specimens

Garage sales will take place in the village, on the town hall square, while artisans and farmers will be held at the de la Bascule. The country market will be open from 9am. It will bring together about fifteen producers: you will find honey, cheese, jewelry, leather, duck, jam, charcuterie, ice cream…

But the star of the day will be the goat from Massif Central: because above all it is a matter of promoting the breed to the public, especially when the breeders will present their best specimens to the competition. traditional, but also for sale. Conversations will go well, at 11 a.m., with some of the central topics of discussion: is the breed still threatened with extinction, what are its specific characteristics, or even even the ability to become a symbol of a territory like the word Aubrac? The race will be detailed later, at 3:45 pm, all those in Auvergne.

The public will be able to observe the arrival of the animals from 10 a.m. in the park of the reception center, then in the alleys of the village, where they will parade at 11:30 a.m. and after it was 3:30 pm.

Of course, what would a goat fighting festival be without a lunch made from local livestock products? It will be served at noon in the village hall: 14 euros for the meal and 9 euros for the children. The menu is green salad and organic goat cheese from the Orcellas farm, a goat stew from the site. Saint’s education camp- Front side comes with green lentils from Puy or a potato gratin and, for dessert, an apple tartlet. And because you can love goats without wanting to eat them, Godiveaux will be provided.
