Marie and Christophe who share with us the passion for their profession

What are the prerequisites for growing asparagus?
It is imperative to have sandy and well-irrigated soil... and that's what we have, that's why we had the idea of ​​asparagus. 25 years ago, we started with one hectare, today the asparagus extends over 12 ha! At the same time we grow vines and have table grapes in the fall. Asparagus is a very seasonal crop, the harvest only lasts 3 months, but it is intense. It really is the expected and much appreciated spring vegetable!

Why did you choose direct sales and producer stores?
It’s a great way to really promote our product. In supermarkets – and we have been through them – everything must be standardized to the nearest centimeter, while producer stores emphasize quality and taste before aesthetic aspects. There is more authenticity and everyone can relate!
