professional activities are an integral part of our life, and
we put all our heart into it, but that’s not all there is
It’s a way to live the life we wish for our family; an existence
that is respectful of nature and its treasures, close to the values
that are important to us, those that Pierre Rabhi calls «La
Sobriété Heureuse ». Living better, with less.
Knowing what is essential, giving up the superfluous, learning

be among the happiest…
We do not live from the Earth, we live with the Earth.

Quality, Authentic and Craftsmanship. Nowadays, these terms are
over-used as “buzz words”. Some skillfully play with
