Open for business!

To all my customers and friends, I would like to thank you all for your kind words of encouragement both publicly and privately.
It is very comforting to know that so many of you understand the pressure of juggling family and a business.
So many things have shaped what Les Fromentaux is today, and will continue to change and direct the business in the future.   I would like to ask for your continued support and to tell you I will be publishing dates for Sunday dinner at the farm in the next week.
All meat (with the exception of lamb) is available to order and pick up at the farm, and the dates for the beef will be available shortly. We will be doing the Christmas hampers again this year as well as all oven-ready poultry.
Thank you all again, from me and my family, and look out for what is coming up on the Facebook page and the website.
Life on the farm

Why a farm in France?

One December we were waiting for the bank manager to come see us to discuss the coming year.

We put on the television and a house in the sun home or away was on, they showed a couple around the place: House, Barn, Shed, Old buildings for renovation and 17 ha £120,000. We both thought the same thing, let’s have a look at this and it was in France, that is where it started.

We came out for the first time in September 2013 for a week, went home after putting an offer in on a farm, and waited for the response, Oh yes and got married!!
We got the farm and it all moved along quite well, we moved here to France in March 2014, and we are enjoying France.
We bought the farm lock stock; we even got a man that works for us, and a direct sales business for the beef and veal.
The owners of the farm before us have been fantastic and still help me to this day with the beef.
