EARL de Vieille Prée
Bernadette and Philippe Meunier welcome you to their cereal farm 6 km from Lencloître and 7 km from Mirebeau where Bernadette harvests berry fruits (raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants and blackberries) and orchard fruits (cherries, morello cherries, plums, figs, pears, apples, quinces, green tomatoes and rhubarb).
Over the course of the year, all the fruit grown in the berry garden and orchard are harvested for direct sale to the public or otherwise to be made into jams, jellies, etc.
Bernadette makes an extensive range of jams and jellies, some 35 kinds, made in copper pans to ensure they retain the full flavour of the fruit that is picked only when fully ripe. They also make raspberry vinegar for serving with gizzard salad and duck fillet, plus cordials (raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant) and raspberry coulis.
