The Loire Valley
We produce our asparagus and rhubarb in the center of France, in the department of the Indre and Loire, the region of the Loire Valley Chateaux. King Louis XIV adored asparagus. It was his gardener in Versailles who perfected a system of growing aspargus under shelter in order to harvest asparagus all year round, inventing the technique of mounding to obtain white asparagus. Our fields are situated in the ancient bed of the Loire river: a deep, sandy soil suitable for the production of asparagus.
