Thuré Agricultural School
Half way from the Loire Châteauw and the Futuroscope, the Discovery and educational farm welcomes you in a beautiful natural environment which is hilly and woody and overlooks the Massardière château ( 11th and 18th century). You will be welcomed in a typical old style farm which has been entirely renovated with a capacity of 38 guests and a fully equipped function room. Our Discovery Farm is an ideal site for learning about the environment and discovering the rural domain and local patrimonial frame.On site or at one of the other 20 partner farms, we invite you to discover the work of farmers, producers and cratsmen, the animals and local products which make up the prosperity of the local patrimony. We offer you a range of different activities adapted to different publics: bread making, cattle and dairy farm visits, discovery of the mysterious world of the forest, raising awarness on the importance of sorting waste products, bee hive and bee keeping discovery...Fun for all the family: the summer farm tours are ideal for discovering all about the "simple life". The "Crafts and land" workshops, on an annual base, offer you an introduction to enology, painting, stone sculpting, jam and free range duck foie gras production, learning flower arranging, etc. Finally for the joy of children we organise "workshops in the bushes" during school holidays and farm life themed birthday parties.
