L'Asinerie is a livestock farm and a production farm: hay, organic vegetables and direct selling...it's also a farm where you can find guided donkey rides!
Around forty acres are farmed for pasture land, for hay or for vegetables.
With the help of the donkeys, soil is worked gently and with respect. The soil isn't forced, it's coaxed to benefit its biological activity and to limit subsidence and erosion.
To maintain the balance of life and encourage ecological diversity, we try to maintain all life on the cultures (insects, auxiliaries, etc.). To do this, we have planted different kinds of hay, each with its own use. Some protect against the wind, others help pollinators, while others protect against sprays from outside our farm.
Naturally, we don't use chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Animal traction is a added benefit. No dependancy on oil and its continuing increases, no greenhouse gas emissions, no noise, no soil pollution risk (rubber, oils, etc.) and the soil remains mobile and aereated without heavy machinery flattening the earth.
With Les Jardins de l'Asinerie , we are investing in quality food and sustainable development in the area.
There is a wide range of vegetables available to you.
