Preserving the environment

  • Multiplication of flowering, green and melliferous fallows on our various estates

  • Several hectares converted to biocontrol cultivation (no use of copper)

  • Regular upkeep of parks, gardens and buildings that contribute to the attractiveness and beauty of rural landscapes,
