The circuit of the old farm equipments. ( An idea walk in family! )
Ouroux en Morvan created a new circuit of short duration (2 kilometers - 45 minutes) in the middle of the village: « the circuit of the old farm equipments: to the rhythm of seasons ».
This project has been born from a local will to develop the exposed agricultural tools for several years in the village, but also to create a new possibility of walk in families.
In partnership with the municipality and the Regional natural park of Morvan, the Tourist office of Ouroux then designed this course.
The circuit, accessible to all, large and small, makes it possible to the visitors to discover the country life and the farm equipments used at the beginning of the 20th century in Morvan.
Through a free teaching document, a play answers questions for the children and of the illustrated signs which decorate the course, the visitor can also discover with the turning of the streets the local inheritance (laundrette, pond, work to shoe oxen...).
