This 65-hectare family farm has been worked organically since 1996. We sell all our products through short distribution channels : four markets a week (two of which are organic, in the Côte Fleurie), direct from the farm, at shows, through organic specialist shops, cafés, hotels, restaurants and small food stores.
Cutesson is a lieu-dit (small locality) in Vimoutiers, in the south of the Pays d’Auge, set in the green valley of the River Vie. The farm is located on the D979 just outside Vimoutiers, on a small road that we take, under the “Char Tigre” car park. A long driveway surrounded by high stem apple orchards with animals grazing through them takes you to the farm.
Coaches can easily access the farm and can turn around in the courtyard.
All of the cellar’s activity is contained under one roof : the press, the tanks, the cellar and the storage.
We welcome groups of up to 30–40 people by appointment. For individual visits, we would ask you to call us before driving to the farm as we are not always on-site due to markets, deliveries, work in the orchards, etc.
The 60-minute tour starts with an introduction to the farm (its size, apple varieties, our decision to work organically since 1996, etc.), followed by a visit to see the press, the tank hall, the bottling line, the warehouse and labelling facilities. We will also tell you about our beef production activity, our local distribution channels and the processing of the meat into ready-made meals….
The tour will be rounded off by a video on cider production and a tasting of our products.
