So-called industrial dairy dairy October, industrial dairy, hog, French Heritage monument to Maroilles
The dairy is composed of a main building in brick, which in has been attached a smaller, serving as a place of storage. An unloading Wharf was built before the dairy, no doubt in the interwar period. The pigsty is located at the rear of the parcel. Following the agricultural crisis of 1873-1896, the area between the Sambre and the Oise operates a transformation of its agricultural economy: the crops give way to pastures, livestock and dairy production becoming first. In this context for the conversion of the Avesnois, a cooperative dairy barn was founded in 1886 by master Azambre father, not far from the railway station of Hachette, at halfway of the village. The halt of Hachette, permanently based in 1887, is located on the line from Saint-Quentin to Erquelines. The industrial plant belongs to the company maroillaises dairies, managed by Théophile Dehorter. Owing to its unhealthy characteristics - it includes 150 pigs - and its proximity to dwellings, it is transformed in 1891. The dairy can treat 20,000 liters of milk per day. From 1924, Marc Doctobre became tenant, then owner in 1928. The pigsty is today converted into a farm, while the dairy falls in ruins.
