Ticket control is carried out at the entrance to the Écuries du Maréchal de Saxe.
This show starring the Almeria Parc riders is produced by Frédéric Sanabra of Pégase Production, a specialist in horse stunts for the movies (Marie-Antoinette by Sofia Coppola, Sa Majesté Minor by Jean-Jacques Annaud…).
An organic garden dedicated to the cultivation of fruits and vegetables has been set up a few meters from the château on the grounds of the one-time stables.
Based on painstaking observation of nature and its setting, respect for the environment and soil health, this system of cultivation enables increased yields in small areas with minimal mechanization. More that forty varieties of vegetables (comtesse de Chambord beans, squash, cabbage, zucchini, sorrel, tomatoes…) are produced and coexist with aromatic and medicinal plants and 140 fruit trees of traditional varieties.
Conducted by a market gardener, the guided tour is designed to sensitize visitors to the benefits of an ecological farming approach. The cultivators will detail production methods drawn from largely forgotten 19th-century practices, the varieties produced, the tools utilized, the harvesting methods applied and short supply sales circuits.
The visits ends with tasting some of the home-grown products.

In a room of the chateau reserved for private parties, participants are introduced to the diversity of the vineyard and the richness of the terroir through the discovery of 3 wines from the AOC of Cheverny and Cour-Cheverny accompanied by 4 toasts of local products.
