ALP Pâquier-Mottier

Since 2010, an organic brunch has been organised on the Alp each year on the occasion of the Swiss National Day.

This is the time to let you taste all the good products of the farm and of the region. 


national holiday

Different types of traditional cheeses, cold cuts, double cream with meringues, mountain herbal teas, and other delicacies form part of the rich and varied brunch.

It is also a great opportunity to meet people, to listen to live music and to stroll through the Torneresse valley.

Various activities are offered to children such as horse-drawn carriage rides. They can also visit the goats and pigs. At the same time, you can bring back a small souvenir from the Alp.

A stand awaits you with home-made specialities, both gourmet as well as cosmetic and therapeutic.
