Les Cultures de Chez Nous facilities

Since the founding of the business, research and development (R&D) pertaining to the cultivation of leeks and asparagus has played an important role in the development of the installations, notably in Les Cultures de Chez Nous’ environmental commitment. The team called upon engineering know-how to improve production processes, product variety and the automation of daily tasks.  Today, from harvesting to packaging, the processing plant and production line are specifically adapted to the cultivation of leeks and asparagus so that Les Cultures de Chez Nous can offer you both quality and quantity.

700 acres of land

Les Cultures de Chez Nous’ 700 acres of land respects the integrated program for environmental protection and soil balance conservation. At the farm, the use of fertilizers and insecticides is kept to a minimum in order to:

  • improve the quality of the products
  • encourage the richness of organic matter
  • ensure a sustainable agriculture for future generations
  • manage the soil in a responsible manner
