How We Farm
On our seven hectares we cultivate over 100 products, which are planted and harvested year-round. Our land has been ecologically cultivated for 30 years, and has been organically certified for 25 years.
Our philosophy of cultivation is to let nature “do its thing”. We do not try to fix every possible problem: we grow such a variety of foods that if one particular product is not doing so well, others are surely thriving.
Our cultivation is a mosaic of highly diversified farming practices, which harmoniously combines seasonal vegetables, a variety of fruit trees, and laying hens.
We have two movable chicken coops that are relocated every three weeks. In each of them live 50 hens without stress, free to move around in the grass among fruit trees. In this way, they fertilize the orchards, control pests, feeding on healthy vegetation and the organic vegetables which have reached the end of their cycle.
Our little greenhouse is the first step of all cultivation in the fields and also the kingdom of one of our new products: microgreens.
