Animal welfare, farm stays: exhibitors present their innovations at the Agricultural Show

The Agricultural Show is also an opportunity for some to present their innovations to make life easier for farmers or animals.

The start-up Parcel, for its part, offers stays to unplug on the farm thanks to 31 small wooden houses installed on 27 farms spread across France.

No wifi, no television, two hours on average from big cities, describes co-founder Géraldine Boyer. The company pays farmers 30% of the price of the night, as well as 90% of extras. They are free to sell their production to visitors or show them around their farm.
