Animal discovery
Is there a child who isn’t curious about animals? Here, they can go for a ride on the back of a pony, while you take a walk next to them, or you can learn all about agricultural life, poultry, cows, pigs, sheep, goats and lots more 2-legged or 4-legged animal friends at Ferme de Paris!
