The Grand Potager de Fontenille produces, without chemical inputs, fruits and vegetables, used in the 2 restaurants of the area:
“Le Champs des Lunes” and “La cuisine d’Amélie”.
In coordination with the Chef, and according to his cooking needs, nearly 300 varieties of fruit and vegetables are grown, from the most common to the most sophisticated.
There is also a great diversity of aromatic plants. Some are typical of the region, such as thyme, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, lovage, savory, or sage. Others are more exotic, like Thai basil for example.
Some, used in homemade herbal teas, are known for their digestive or soothing properties.
Many berries and small fruit trees also grow along the plots.
Finally, a rich variety of edible flowers, widely used in restaurant kitchens, brightens up the dishes by adding a colorful and fragrant touch.
