Cette interview est en français

How do Swiss celebrate their National Day on 1 August? By having a “Brunch à la ferme” (Brunch at a farm). This year we visited a farm owned by the Piguet family in Le Brassus, a small village in the Vallée de Joux. I liked the brunch and the atmosphere so much that I spontaneously decided to interview the Isabelle Piguet, sister of the owner.

TRANSCRIPT (this interview is in French only):

  1. Can you tell us something about your farm?

We are in Le Brassus, Vallée de Joux. We have a farm with seventy cows that produce milk. They are not here today because they are in the mountains. Every year we organize brunch on 1 August because we like to do that, not to mention, that it gives people an opportunity to discover Swiss agriculture.

      2. Does the brunch bring you something also on a personal level?

Well, we love organizing events, but it is true that at the beginning it was me who had to push my family a bit because I liked the idea. And now it is a habit. Each year we know what to do. Last year we had 400 people, this year we limited it to 160 because we are building a new building. We are proud to be farmers.

It’s neat to hear that you took time to visit the farm. It’s always interesting to see how farms work – even more when you can observe the employees doing what’s best practice (treating their animals right!).
