Since we have been living here, we have aimed to respect the environment that welcomes us by preserving biodiversity and enriching the earth.
For this we started by implementing gardening techniques inspired by agroecology and biodynamic. In particular by minimizing all tillage (use of suitable tools, mulch, on-site composting) in order to preserve its structure and the life present within it. We only work with heirloom seeds as well as with natural fertilizers and pesticides. It’s been 7 years now and thanks to these methods, we have seen great changes: there is more diversity of plants, more insects, more birds and the soil is more fertile.
Today we mainly produce apples but also many other fruits (strawberries, cherries, plums …), more than 100 different varieties of vegetables, wheat, dairy and we do all kinds of processing (juice, vinegar, alcohol…).
We sell our products on several markets in Beirut and we also offer vegetable baskets in partnership with other producers. We favor direct sales in order to be as close as possible to the people who consume our products and in order to make quality food accessible to as many people as possible.
Our farm is also a place of exchange and transmission. We welcome volunteers from all over the world and visitors in bed and breakfast who come to discover a lifestyle closer to nature. Throughout the year, we also organize numerous events (apple festival, vegetable picking, workshops on eco-friendly building, etc.) in order to share our experience and the values that are important to us.
