The history of Salines du Breuil begins in Argentina, in the city of Mar Del Plata. That's where Analia and I meet. Ana works in tourism, and I Julien, I am an engineer on oil platforms. We chose to move to France, and after four years in Nantes, we started missing the country air. We have always dreamed of working in accordance with our ideals. Then, Analia left the hotel business to took care of the reception and visits of the Salines du Breuil. On my side, I left the black gold for the white gold....
It has been three years now since we exchanged our city shoes, the noise of cars and machines, for flip-flops and the singing of birds.
We quickly chose to join CrowdFarming because it allows us to create a stronger link with environmentally friendly consumers and traditional production methods. Being able to take the time to do our work well, with care and dedication, to prepare the crates and share part of our harvest with them, is very important to us and we don't see it any other way. It is important that people become aware of and interested in where their food products come from, how it is produced. We wish to contribute to the growing demand for a general food transparency.
In addition, we have a little girl named Mailèn. To see her grow up in nature, to be able to share our passion with her, to transmit to her the love for the countryside: you can't buy it with money. Nothing beats such happiness.
And of course, wearing flip-flops all day long is priceless!
