The Tabin brothers, owners of the Hotel des Diablons, rented the farm to house twenty cows. Very modern for its time, it was taken over by the Zinal Hotel Company, which decided to install a butcher at the Hotel Durand, to acquire the village bakery and to create a farm. Benedict Crettaz, former owner of the Hotel du Besso, was hired as foreman of the farm.

The stable was below while the area along the road today, was used to make cheese and butter for customers of the Diablons and Durand Hotels.

In 1967, the inaugural year of the lifts, the Farm was transformed into a café-restaurant.
