Born of a fierce desire to defend their terroir, anchored between land and sea, a vegetable-producing tradition and a constant focus on quality, Prince de Bretagne’s producers are pioneers in the field of agroecological market gardening.
More than a production method, agroecology is a philosophy, a progressive way of thinking and full of common sense, which today unites all producers around strong values: solidarity, fairness, transparency and respect.
There is respect for the work of passionate professionals
who often cultivate alongside their families and on small farms. It is about much more than fruit and vegetables: they are the guardians of a genuine plant-growing heritage, rich in its diversity, the protectors of a tradition that has never been so up-to-date, and the defenders of a unique, generous but fragile Breton terroir.
Respect for the land and seasons
A market gardening approach which allows time to do its job, which goes beyond minimum standards to offer fruit and vegetables of irreproachable naturalness.
Respect for consumers
An approach which targets consumers’ well-being, which cares about their health as much as their passion for eating, and which guarantees them varied fruit and vegetables that offer quality, health and taste. For Prince de Bretagne’s market gardeners, agroecology is a sign of their commitment to sustainable farming, looking to the future, good for the planet and good for people.
We believe that it is possible to eat local, while enjoying taste and commitment. Prince de Bretagne’s market gardeners cultivate the land while preserving it.
