Our farm was founded in 1824 by my great-great-great-grandfather, who grew apples and owned certain varieties. The operation has always been led by the Leroy family. From generation to generation, we have developed our crops and harvested new ones.
I have always lived in the heart of orchards. I remember spending whole days on school vacation on the farm while my father and grandfather picked apples together. I always asked him when I could ride the tractor!
I have always felt destined to work on our farm and on the family land. For this reason, after graduating from high school with a specialization in arboriculture, in 2009 I entered the family farm as a duo with my father Philippe, from whom I learned a lot about growing apples.
Today, Leroy en Sarthe apple trees cover around 100 hectares, where different types of fruits and vegetables are grown. My father, brother and I are all responsible for the farm, but each of us has a specific role. Philippe, my father, takes care of the cultivation of orchards, he monitors the growth of apple trees throughout the year, their water supply, their state of health, the facilities in the orchards. My brother Simon is in charge of production, supervises manual sorting, controls packaging, and is responsible for the conservation of apples. I supervise all internal activities, in particular the administrative part with the management of orders, human relations, recruiting seasonal workers; and outdoor activities to monitor orchards, sow and plant vegetables according to seasonality, mowing, the size of the apple tree, etc.
Joining CrowdFarming gives us the opportunity to create a close link between you and our farm. For us, it is a way to inform you about our cultivation methods and to discover our daily life while bringing you high-quality apples and pumkins full of flavor.
Our farm, « La Oizéenne », was created in 1824, at a place called le Châtaignier, Oizé en Sarthe. For 8 generations, our lands have been passed down from father to son. Apples were our first crop. Since then, we have diversified by growing fruits and vegetables of various varieties.
A family operator, we are committed to promoting the economy and job creation in our city. Thus, we employ around thirty people, living in Oizé or in the neighboring municipalities, many of whom have followed us for many years. Thanks to them, we perform a manual sorting of apples in order to guarantee quality apples to the consumers.
In our orchards, 5 hectares have been dedicated to apples from organic farming since 2016, the other apple trees respect an eco-responsible orchard approach. We have been cultivating our land for 200 years. We want to ensure longevity and cultivate for many more years, which is why we have chosen organic cultivation, which seems to us the method most suited to our wishes. We cultivate our land with respect for the environment. Thus, for the growth of our apple trees, we are equipped with a weather station in order to know the needs of our trees. You should know that during its growth a tree needs 800 mm of water per year and later in vegetation 600 mm of water per year. We obtain this water by drilling and reserving water, this water is then used by a sprinkler and drip irrigation system. At the same time, for our organic cultivation, we do not use any chemicals and favor mechanical weeding 2 to 3 times a year and one mowing per year. We promote biodiversity within our orchards by limiting the applications of phytosanitary products, by limiting mowing, by creating flowery fallows to attract pollinators and beneficial insects.
We are part of limiting waste by making apple juice or mashed apples from our leftover harvest. In order to guarantee quality apples, the apples are sorted manually by our local employees. When we prune our trees, the pruned wood is crushed and left directly between the trees to limit the spread of pathogens.
