Fresh products from my garden

Me and my wife Julie are doing the best we can to give you the best products. We grow our own flowers for your plates, fresh herbs, Basel coriander, chives, etc... This year will do courgette trompette, white peppers, purple physalis, cherries tomatoes and some more unusual vegetables, all of that with our own organic compost.

I buy my vanilla directly from Madagascar, we do also our own fig Jam for the foie gras, we have our own almond tree, we use the almond for cakes and different recipes .
