Exclusive guided tour of the vegetable garden

All year long

An organic garden dedicated to the cultivation of fruits and vegetables has been set up a few meters from the chateau 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 1400 fruit trees of traditional varieties and aromatic and medicinal plants.

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 visit ends with tasting some of the home-grown products (raw vegetables or beverage products associated with the garden).

2 persons minimum, 30 persons maximum per guide.
Visit given in several languages: French, English and Spanish.

Booking required.

Duration: 1 hour 1/2

Rates on request: booking – Tel./ 00 33 (0)2 54 50 50 40 – reservations@chambord.org
