A lifelong passion

I am passionate about life in all its forms. Whiling away childhood hours in the ditches of Anthonic, I observed and examined the teeming wildlife: reptiles, toads and frogs, insects and orchids… These happy hours inspired my choice of career as an engineer of forests and water resources.

Up until the end of the 1980s my father was unconsciously using farming methods strikingly close to today’s organic farming practices. Then, the ploughing of the soil was abandoned and chemical products progressively replaced the traditional copper and sulphur.

By the time I took over the running of the property in 1993, the impoverishment of the biodiversity was already stark. Since then, in order to redress the balance, I have taken many steps, such as eliminating insecticides progressively, establishing natural grassing over, and moderating the doses of chemical products.

But little by little I have gained the conviction that this is insufficient, and that only the total renunciation of chemical methods will allow a genuinely balanced environment and the return of health to our plants.
