In 1981, Etienne and François took over the family farm-inn with their wives Marie-Thérèse and Madeleine. Since then, they have perpetuated the marcaire tradition. Raphael, Etienne’s son, joined them in 2010. The summer farm has 35 ha of stubble, integrated into the network of Natura 2000 sites for their ecological interest. The valley farm occupies 50 ha, half of which is mown. The herd, led in organic farming, has 20 dairy and 20 suckler cows of the Vosges breed, plus heifers and a few fattening oxen, ie 85 cattle. In addition, there are 80 goats, useful for brush clearing. About thirty milk-fed calves are reared. With milk, we make Munster and Bargkas. In addition to the marcaire meal, it is the grilled veal or beef, the bourguignon and the fleischnakas that are popular. Hot goat cheese and snacks are requested in the evening. For dessert, local blueberry pie and siesskass are popular. The hostel has 5 rooms for 20 people.
