We use a sustainable ecological culture, in collaboration with the advice of our agronomists.
When you visit us
At the general store as well as for fruit picking, we use biodegradable ecological bags, reusable or recyclable baskets or boxes, in addition to composting all our table waste at the Apple Shack. In addition, recycling and composting bins are made available to everyone in every corner of our orchard. We pay particular attention to the management and saving of water on the farm by applying practical alternatives to reduce its use.
Our tangible actions
Our orchard is cultivated without herbicides. By conducting constant natural tests, we apply integrated pest management in collaboration with their natural predators. A winning and natural collaboration that we have the advantage of promoting in order to respect the environment and to offer you high quality products. Moreover, all our crop residues are composted. We have started a large-scale green project introducing backfill for the ecological and sustainable regeneration of a portion of our land, which is currently unused, having previously been a quarry excavated to extract the rock. This land will be reallocated to sustainable agricultural activities. We ensure that our crops evolve for the benefit of everyone's health.
