Georges, who is Jérôme’s father, started running the farm in 1976 with 24 cows. Jérôme, the third generation, took over the business a few years ago and is now the sole owner. His wife, Maryline, works as a nurse. They have two sons and a daughter. They hope one day to transfer the farm to one of their children.
The Forgel farm upgraded its buildings and equipment in 2019. A new barn was built to accommodate a milking robot. They farm over 450 acres of land.
