Eat locally and responsibly, even on holiday
At home, we have changed our habits, emphasizing short supply chains and seasonal products farmed sustainably or organically. Eat locally and responsibly, even on holiday!

Commitment to a quality charter for farmers and producers
Our producers and farmers are active agriculturists who produce, process and sell their products. Farm goods are processed agricultural products. 100% of the main ingredients come from the producer’s farm. They are guaranteed to be GMO-free.
La Ferme Santone, a farm shop in Saintes
Farmers and producers run the shop, where they sell their local products directly to consumers. These short supply chains are bolstering small-scale sustainable farming.
They give local residents the opportunity to meet the farmers, learn about their production methods and buy quality seasonal products for prices that are fair to all parties. All year round, you can find cuts of meat, charcuterie, poultry, vegetables, cheese and other dairy products, local wines and spirits, sundry groceries, ice cream and more.
Stock up on fresh local products while enjoying the friendly, authentic atmosphere of the markets of Saintes and the villages of Saintonge.
