Bernard recommends: La Chèvrerie du Moulin de Wez
The Maquisards' trail starts at the church in Ernuville and runs for 7km through the Saint-Hubert Forest. After enjoying such magnificent countryside, make sure you have time for a gourmet stop at the Moulin de Wez, goat farm, just a stone's throw from the trail.
At the farm, they raise organic goats and make goats-milk cheese: plain or spicy fresh "crottins", matured "crottins", bacon-wrapped "crottins", vintage dry "crottins"; plain or chilli-pepper ash-dusted pyramids and hearts; plain or garlic-and-herbs soft cheese; plain "tomme", cumin or fenugreek "tomme"... the choice of available cheeses depends on the season. Besides its goats, the farm also has an organic market garden and uses horse-drawn tools and vehicles, as well as making organic apple juice.
The farm shop's shelves are stocked with home-made produce as well as produce from neighbouring farms, including home-made ketchup, wild-garlic pesto, yogurt, eggs, milk, honey, salami, white, grey and wholemeal flour and goat-milk soap...
