Located 7 miles from Bordeaux it is a farm and a cannery, as well as an extraordinary touristic site. Here are grown and developed several hundreds of forgotten vegetables, plants and fruits : wild nettle, dandelion, sorrel, ground cherry or "amour en cage", elderberries, Perigord verjuice, patty pan, "potimarron" squash, purslane ...

Our conservatory orchard and vegetable garden are expressly dedicated to all forgotten fruits and vegetables ! Chinese artichoke, Turkish turban, Jerusalem artichoke, Zealand spinach and ground cherries among others are names that are music to our ears, each one telling us its own story. They are an invitation to discovery, imagination, gastronomy or curiosity. Therefore we invite lovers of nature and tradition to rediscover the richness and the atmosphere of our grandmothers´ vegetable gardens and orchards.

In the middle of a landscaped garden, you will find more than 600 different species and varieties of edible plants. Several beds are devoted to squashes, to leaf-, root-, fruit-, flower- or seed-vegetables, as well as to wild edible plants and herbs. The orchard has been created in partnership with the Aquitaine Regional Plant Conservatory. It brings together local varieties of apples, pears,cherries, plums, peaches, and other little fruits that were grown in the past.

Offer :
Look, discover and understand but also taste... That is our purpose !
In this day and age when suspicion about food increases, it appeared essential to us to let people discover the flavour of our grandmothers´ vegetables, by means of a labelling system "gouter a la ferme" (tasting at the farm), and an introduction to the flavours of the past. In a convivial atmosphere we offer our visitors a snack according to the seasons that will lead them on a path along the 4 essential flavours : sour, savoury, sweet and bitter.

Moreover we have created for you : a special shop with all our specialities together with a number of items on the theme of forgotten vegetables.
