Ecological farm

An ecological break in Fontaine Neuve !

For more than 30 years, we have grown our farming “roots” – formerly in the Vercors national park and now in Provence, near Forcalquier. Nature has always been our thread.

The barn has an “ecological” certificate so we don’t use any pesticide, chemical fertilizer or any other “killing” chemical. Instead, we create vegetal elixirs and compost.

We act to preserve a cow on the verge of extinction : the Villarde or Villard-de-Lans – and breed special vegetal varieties.

We work on interactions between species, soils and animals : those are processes known as “permaculture”, “agroforesterie” and “BRF”.

We moved to this place in 2014. We wish you can share part of our life in this heavenly cocoon and participate to many activities including farming processes, barns construction and, by the end of the year, looking for the famous “truffe”.

In short, we welcome you all year long for a quiet and relaxing stay in a peacefull  place – but also to share our life and participate to our activities if you wish to !
