At the initiative of Catherine CHAMBER and her husband, to meet customer expectations, the creation of a store “Le Marché a la Ferme” was born. Arranged in the operating buildings and open only at the end of the day, this store will first offer the harvests from the garden and an assortment of farm and local products.

In addition, it will expand with a commercial structure called the RC (Commercial Register) APOM Chamber in order to be able to sell the entire range of fruits and vegetables.

2006. A new concept is born, “Harvesting on the farm”.

Our fields and orchards are open to the public so that our customers can freely compose their basket of fruit and vegetables.

2010. In this context of free picking, we care to offer our customers a wide choice of fruit and vegetables as healthy as possible. We decide to convert our entire farm to organic farming.
