I am Tiphaine Quemener and I am (among other things) a Roscoff onion farmer in Roscoff. First, I was working in marketing in Paris and Nantes. In 2016, I started working at the farm combining both jobs. In 2018, I decided to change my plan and to work full time in the family business. I wanted to have a job that has meaning for me, and what is more meaningful than feeding people?
Today, working with my family is a real pleasure (there are also challenges) and I learn a lot from my father's knowledge. No need for books! He has everything in mind.There is very little routine in our daily life, we rarely get bored! For my part, I prefer the plantation period and the follow-up. It’s exciting to sow a seed and see 2 weeks later that it has germinated and the shoot is 3 centimeters! It is magic. While the harvest is a much more stressful time (you need good weather, it's super intense to manage both the harvest and the sale).
Today, we are working directly with our clients, professionals and individuals. We work manually as much as possible, from sowing to harvesting, to packaging. It requires a lot of time! We wanted to integrate CrowdFarming to make Roscoff onions and shallots known to the world!

As far as we remember, our family always worked as farmers and produced onions and shallots in Roscoff. Roscoff is a small city in Brittany in front of Plymouth, and thanks to the humidity and a clement climate it is an ideal zone to grow vegetables. The vegetable that we are really proud of is onion: a mild and fruity onion that pleases every foodie. In 2009, Roscoff onions received the AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée), guaranteeing quality and authenticity for consumers and offering protection against fraud and counterfeits. Then in 2013, We obtained the PDO, its European equivalent. Shallots are a complement product of the onions, it is the same family but not at all the same way of producing.
My brother and I grew up in Roscoff, spending the holidays helping our parents on the farm, especially for the onion and shallot harvest during summer. At the end of August, we were following our father for the most important moment of the year: the harvest. Some of us filled buckets with onions or shallots and others emptied them in big wooden crates in which the onions were to spent the winter nice and dry!
After our studies and our past experience in companies, we decided to follow the history and to come back to the farm, growing onions. We had the chance to follow the steps of our father, the leading figure of the farm and at the heart of this story.
We try to grow or products as environmentally friendly as possible, reducing the use of pesticides and using our hands to get rid of the weeds. We don’t need irrigation because in Brittany the rain is frequent.
In 2018, my brother and I fully overtook the farm (but still with our father’s support) and we invested in machinery to help us in the daily tasks. We are 3 people working on the farm. Since this date, we also started making caramelized onions. Another step! We try to work as manually as possible. This way, all the onions or shallots that you will receive will have been checked one by one and put in the box by a person, not a machine!
All the onion parts that we don’t use (skin / roots) have a second life and are used as compost.
Our dream? Give fame to Roscoff onions and shallots and make them necessary for all your dishes.
