PICKING FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
It is Jean Tillement who is at the initiative of picking Peltre. Jean has been a breeder and grain producer at Peltre for 34 years. Anxious to diversify his operation and facilitate the installation of his son Vincent, he decided in 1992 to transform part of his fields into vegetable gardens and orchards and allow the public to come and pick his vegetables, his fruits and even his flowers.
Vincent Tillement took over the entire activity in 1998.
The picking of Peltre has been from the start, a Straw Hat picking.
The principle is simple: A basket, a wheelbarrow, a pruner in hand, according to your needs, you wander the aisles of our vegetable patch and orchard.
You pick at the rhythm of the seasons, from April to November, fresh and varied products grown with respect for sustainable agriculture.
By consuming locally, you are guaranteed to find among 60 varieties, the true taste of strawberry, tomato, apple ... at the fairest price in an eco-responsible approach.
