A farm near a popular tourist spot in southern France is hoping to offer organic vegetables to shoppers as they continue to grow vegetables at a declining rate.
“It will be the first farm that will grow vegetables in the country with organic standards,” said Le Petit Petit, owner of Petit Farm.
The farm opened its doors in 2014, and sells organic produce such as herbs, greens, tomatoes, and potatoes.
The new farm will offer produce grown under a new organic certification system.
The first crop of organic vegetables, which were produced by the farm’s owner, will be ready to be harvested by the end of the year.
The garden, which is the second farm to open in France in recent years, will sell organic produce in addition to local produce.
“We have a huge interest in organic food,” Le Petits owner said.
“People are getting tired of the same old products.”
The new garden will have a growing selection of organic produce.
The vegetables are grown in the same organic farming techniques as the farms owned by Le Petites owner, including fertilization and water, and the same technology used in the original farm.
“For us, organic is a new word,” LePetit said.
The vegetable garden is the result of a collaboration between the Le Petite Farm and the Ecole Dessinée de Pédagogique (EDP).
The EDP, a French research organization that studies agriculture, organic production, and biodiversity, has been growing organic produce for nearly 20 years.
“There is an enormous demand for this type of produce and we are really happy to provide it to the farmers,” said Sylvie Dubois, president of the EDP.
“With the growing popularity of organic farming, many of the farmers are finding that they need more time to produce more organic food for their families.”
Dubois said she is excited by the new organic farm and hopes that it will help bring organic farming to the region.
“I know that people are growing tomatoes and onions for their own families.
They will be able to grow them and sell them at the same time,” she said.
Dubois and other members of the organization have been meeting with local farmers to talk about the possibility of growing vegetables for organic farming.
“This will be a great opportunity to learn more about organic farming in France,” Dubois added.
