Sustainably and responsibly grown

VEG BOX WINTER SUBSCRIPTIONS NOW OPEN

Subscriptions are now open for our popular veggie box scheme, offering weekly boxes of fresh, seasonal vegetables grown responsibly and sustainably using permaculture principles in the heart of the Haute Vienne.  


All our boxes are planned in accordance with what grows naturally throughout the year, which means that you will be truly eating with the seasons.  No chemicals or artificial fertilisers are used, we use mainly heirloom and rare varietals and  save the seeds of our best produce to grow only the best vegetables.   Quality and flavour are at the heart of what we do, and we are confident then when you try our veggies, you will love them.  


We offer two sizes of box: A one person box is 10 euros (2-2.5kg) per week, a box for two people weighs 4.5-5kg and is 20 euros per week


If you would like to see for yourself, why not visit us to have a look at how the veggies are grown and try a sample bag. We are open every Saturday 2-6 and would love to see you.


In addition,  we offer fresh eggs from our flock of adorable chickens and ducks who roam our land in a truly free range fashion and, when available, home baked English style cakes, jams, pickles and herbs.


We will commence the new season of veg boxes in the first week of August for a period of 4 months (16 weeks) 


Delivery takes place on Sundays at locales in the following towns: Chalus, Bellac, Limoges family village, Chabains, Confolens, St Junien, Piegut (provided that there is 3 or more members in that area)  


A €50 euro is deposit required at the time of subscribing by cheque, cash or bank transfer.

About Us

Our Philosophy

Sustainable and responsible growing is at the core of what we do, but it is more than just guidelines for gardening, it is a lifestyle choice.

  

From the very beginning, we have strived to make everything we do work in harmony with nature. This isn't about 'hippy' principles, we have learned the the effort you put forth in treating the land with care and respect is rewarded in the quality of the flowers, vegetables and fruit it produces. 

 

This extends beyond just the growing cycle. We have a flock of chickens and ducks who we move around the land regularly so they always have fresh grass and vegetation to eat, and we give them natural grains - no processed supplements or 'lay-helpers'. An added advantage is that they, in turn, fertilise the land for us in the most natural way possible.

 

We not registered organic (or 'Bio' as it is called in France). This is deliberate on our part because it can be very restrictive for a small farm, especially one that practices polyculture and integrated cultivation, as we do, rather than intensive monoculture farming. We do follow the key principles of organic farming, such as no chemical fertilisers or pesticides,etc, but we go further by using as many of the resources given to us by the land to cultivate our crops. For example, we gather the fallen leaves from our trees to mulch for compost and no green waste is disposed of, everything has a use and can be used to feed future plants.

Opening Times

We are open on Saturdays from 

2pm-6pm And other times by appointment, just email cristina@lascauxpermaculturegardens.com or contact us through Facebook

Plant Nursery & Veg Boxes

We offer a wide range of plants including perennials, annuals and herbs, grown with love and care. Our plants are grown from from seed, after which we divide and take cuttings to multiply them using only organic compost, and free from artificial pesticides and fertilisers. All our plants are grown in natural conditions and they will be hardy and ready to be planted in your garden. Click here to see our current range.


New for 2019, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new veg box scheme and the sale of vegetables directly from the farm.  Different size  boxes are available, click here for more details

Better yet, see us in person! We are tucked away in the tiny hamlet of Lascaux, near Cheronnac.

We have a small car park, accessible by turning down what looks a bit like a mud path, but its a road.  It is signposted.  Please avoid parking in front of our neighbours barn, they need access to it at all times.  Thank you
