La Ferme des 4 Saisons is the name given to our farm because it leaves the idea of a production throughout the seasons: strawberries to celebrate spring, tomatoes in summer salads, apples and pears in autumn and cheese to be enjoyed during the winter.
La Ferme des 4 Saisons is a farm where a wide variety of fruits and vegetables are grown, where cows and pigs are raised and yoghurts, dairy desserts and cheeses such as Tomme de Savoie are made. It is a farm where arboriculturists, market gardeners, breeders and cheese makers work together to offer simple, good and healthy products all year round, respecting the (four) seasons.
The diversity of production within the farm is linked to the different people associated with the farm and their particular affinities. Our common goal is to offer a "finished" product that can be marketed directly to consumers. The direct sale, locally, of farm products is the shared vision of the farm.
At the source of dairy products and cheeses made on the farm is a herd of about fifty dairy cows, all of the Montbéliarde breed, which are raised on the farm. They pasture on grass from the surrounding meadows in the summer and are fed on hay harvested on the farm in the winter as well as grains. Playing with the variability of the flora to build a healthy, local and balanced diet throughout the seasons, and being attentive to the well-being of our animals, are all key elements for healthy animals. And that's how we make quality milk. Manure is composted, so it can feed the meadows, but also the garden and some orchards as needed... the cycle is closed!
Our cheeses, made and matured in the farm's cellar, are Tommes de Savoie Fermière in accordance with the PGI's standards.
