Our products are cultivated according to the rhythm of the seasons and moons, in small plots of land that do not allow for mechanization. We harvest them and serve them in our farm all year round.
BETWEEN NATURE AND TRADITION
A mountain farm
Our crops are varied and robust. They range from small fruits to rye, from vegetables to potatoes, preferring those that are well suited to our soil and the short duration of the season. The plots of land are small and scattered between the municipalities of Pontboset and Champorcher. We practice rotational farming for annual crops, in order to leave time for resting as well.
THE ROOTS OF AGRICULTURAL TRADITION
Chestnuts, potatoes, and rye are written in our history because they are part of the tradition of the Champorcher valley and its traditional peasant cuisine. We have recovered ancient crops: the chestnuts are found in Pontboset, the rye is selected among the varieties present in Champorcher and is cut by hand, the potatoes now vary from white to yellow to purple.
SMALL GESTURES OF LOVE
The small fruits have been chosen because they suit the soil: our subsoil is rich in acidity and lends itself to the cultivation of blueberries. Raspberries, currants, blackberries and gooseberries are complementary plants. These are perennial crops that every year require to be cared for, pruned, pampered, straightened and then harvested by hand.
HOW WE USE OUR PRODUCTS
From farm to table
A large part of our production is used fresh, while the surplus is transformed into jams, compotes, or pickles.
Our products are mostly used for the annual needs of the farm. They are not only fresh, direct at km0, but also processed and preserved in order to guarantee their organoleptic qualities.
SUSTAINABILITY IN BREEDING
Hens and rabbits are at home here in Champorcher, cared for and fed with leftovers from our kitchen and grass that grows between the rows of our crops. Nothing is thrown away in sustainable farming!
