About Marthinus Wessels Marais
Welcome to our farm, La Petite Ferme du Marais. We are a family of four, Louiza, Marthinus and our two children. We have a small 25 hectare farm where we farm with Soay sheep (ancient breed that resembles to the wild mouflon sheep race). We also farm with Kangaroo (wallabies). All our animals are for sale and you are free to inquire using the contact form. Apart from that we have large tracts of land with forests which you can discover and with some luck see some deer or ever wild boar. We have an eco friendly farm where visitors can come and stay for a few days or even weeks. Huge farms leave a lot of CO2 footprints and that is what we are trying to prevent. We are into alternative farming methods like farming with Soay sheep which are used for "éco-pâturage", creating forests and harvesting our own oak trees, etc. We do not use pesticides on our land and do not use fertilizer. Our forests are natural and pastures get cut once a year towards the end of summer to enable water birds to nest and insects and bees to flourish. We recently, in 2018, created an independent lodge in a part of our farmhouse where guests can stay in the comfort on a fully functional farm in the heart of the Bresse region of Burgundy. From here guests can enjoy the calm of the countryside while discovering what the region has to offer be it historical landmarks, natural beauty, picturesque villages, wine tasting or a culinary adventures in Burgundy.
