 “Les Jardins du Pays d’Aubagne” is based on three key factors: freshness, quality and proximity.
It offers fruits, vegetables, honey, farm goats’ cheese, poultry etc. all produced in the Pays d’Aubagne territory.

The fifty-something products making up the “Les Jardins du Pays d’Aubagne” range demonstrate the rich savoir-faire at work in the Pays d’Aubagne.

To sell their harvests under the brand, producers must respect several criteria:

  • Be a farmer by profession and comply with the CETA;
  • Produce in the territory of the conurbation community (and Gémenos);
  • Respect the specifications which are based on a common procedure (origin and production method) and files relating to products (freshness and quality). These specifications are likely to evolve.
  • Participate in collective promotional activities (exhibitions, fairs, events etc.)

A dozen farmers in the “Les Jardins du Pays d’Aubagne” sell all or part of their products in AMAP (Association for the Maintenance of Agricultural Farming) or the equivalent.
