It is in the land of Giono, the heart of Provence, that Veronique and Thierry Baurain welcome you in a traditional farm of the countryside of Forcalquier :“Les Truques”, the fruit of a familial project and work.

The itinerary takes you to the fields, among a Provençal scrub pastured by flocks. As you reach the hilltop above the farm, and discover the diversity of its production, the view opens on a vast horizon that extends from the Montagne de Lure to the Massif du Verdon.

You stroll by the brook or rest under the shadow of a century-old oak while listening to your host, who shows you round these emblematic cultures of the Provencal trilogy: cereals, olive trees and vine.

From the seed to the packing, the working methods are traditional and environment friendly. Discover small spelt, or einkorn, its transformation and its many uses, and taste some of the farm products.

Veronique and Thierry are organic producers, members of the union of einkorn producers of Haute Provence (European label IGP), a slow food sentinel product.
