Goffinet’s Farm

An organic cattle farm growing its own feed

Goffinet Farm raises pure-bred Limousin cattle for meat production. Quentin took over non-organic Limousin cattle production from his father in 2004, immediately converting it to organic methods. Over the years, he has become 99% independent of external feed production.

Having started out with 40ha (including 8ha for grain), Quentin Goffinet acquired neighbouring land over the years to increase his breeding and production capacity. His herd now numbers 250 and he is 99% self-sufficient in feed production. Quentin will tell you how he did it and explain the importance of crop rotation, soil preparation and mechanical weed control in pesticide-free crop cultivation.
