Several years ago, Caroline and Didier’s son Thomas embarked on an adventure « Terre et Abeilles (Land and Bees) »: 20 hectares of almond groves and 40 beehives between Rochemaure and Montélimar. This is how it came about …
Land & Bees
A dream come true
Our dream to become growers has come true under the guidance of Thomas, together with our commitment to manage the production of organic raw materials at source : 5 hectares of almond groves have been cultivated in Ardèche since 2017 and a further 15 hectares have recently been planted on the outskirts of Montélimar at Châteauneuf-du-Rhône.
Fascinated by the fragile and amazing world of bees
The hives have continued to expand since 2017, allowing us to make our own local « Nougat de chez nous ».
Medium and long-term projects in the pipeline include the creation of hedges to encourage biodiversity, the opening of a centre for research into the eco-friendly, responsible use of raw materials produced at source, the creation of a honey factory at the Châteauneuf-du Rhône and the sale of products grown on-site.
