Our Profession

Since 1987, we offer organic fruits and vegetables, respecting the earth, the environment, the farmers and the consumers.

We are committed to promote the diversity of French regions, the quality of regional products and the human know-how in order to offer what the nature has best to offer.

During our different travel journeys looking for organic farmers, we share that philosophy so that the organic farmers, earth lovers from all over the world, join our cause.

Our agronomists assist and guide the farmers

In order to assist our organic farmers and provide quality agronomical monitoring, since 1987, we are accompanied by “organic specialists”…

These experts, known for their know-how, take part in the setting up of the farming routes and schedules, in the production costs’ management and in the implementation of the quality standards set by the market.

Their agronomical advises concern mainly:

  • The profile analysis based in soil trenches
  • The global diagnosis of the soil fertility
  • The reduction of the inputs by controlling the quantity of the provided organic materials
  • The elaboration, for each fruit or vegetable, of technical specifications and a planning determining the varieties as well as the seeding, planting and harvesting dates
  • The monitoring of the phytosanitary protection
  • Assistance in conversion
