Gardening

La Fontaine, at an altitude of 750m, covers 8 hectares including 5 ha of meadows and 1 ha of market gardening (including the vegetable patch, the orchard and the berries). We are blessed to have the Provencal climate, especially between April and October to grow a maximum of vegetables and fruits on site.

Crops

Field crops harvested include potatoes, carrots, beets, onions, garlic, leeks, squash, zucchini, beans, and a multitude of varieties of tomatoes.

In the two greenhouses of 200 m2 each, salads, lamb’s lettuce, spinach, chard, fennel, cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, kohlrabi, melons, watermelons are grown. Plants and sowing are carried out on site. There are also condiments and medicinal plants. The orchard consists of apricot, apple, plum, cherry, pear trees.

Berries such as raspberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants and blackberries are also cultivated, generally transformed into jams on solar ovens.

The production of cereals (wheat, rye and spelt) is used to make bread while improving both crop rotation and diversity in the field.
Our objective is complete autonomy for the consumption of fruits, vegetables and cereals.

The target is autonomy for the consumption of fruits and vegetables.
