Through our practice, it’s essential to respect the farmers’s work, other developers and the owners who welcome us on their grounds.
So that the herds do not escape, well to close all the electric fencings and not to damage them!
Also, not disturb the herds, greet the crossed people with a friendly "hello", and naturally return all your waste! Cut not routes through meadows, not peak screw!
