Le potager des poissons
Le Potager des Poissons in Moulins-sur-Tardoire is an aquaponic farm. But what is it?
An ancestral method of cultivation brought up to date. The association of a market garden and a fish farm to grow vegetables on the one hand and raise fish on the other. Jehanne and Benoît, the farmers, invite you to discover this method of cultivation which is based on an ecosystem where the sturgeon’s excrement becomes the nutrient for the plants which in turn serve as a filter.
Products of our living mills
The water mills of the region open their doors and offer you their products: oils, flours and even craft beers. You will be able to watch and listen to the machinery, smell and taste good products and meet passionate people!
In Vouthon, the mill produces hazelnut, camelina, walnut and sesame oils and flours in an organic and eco-responsible way.
In Moulins sur Tardoire, the Moulin de la Forge produces corn and chestnut flour, walnut and hazelnut oil.
In Chazelles, “La Rainette” beers are brewed at the mill using a traditional method that respects tastes and aromas.
