Domaine Oléicole Biologique Pontet Fronzèle

We have planted more than 3,500 olive trees on the hillside, a veritable conservatory of Ardèche varieties (more than 25 varieties). We farm in an agro6ecological way, nourishing the soil with compost and green manure.
We've been planting olive trees since 1997, when there was only one olive grove with 50 trees that had survived the frost of 1956. We were impressed by the desolation of the hills, marked by the abandonment of farming and intensive grazing, and we wanted to breathe new life into this land, steeped in the work of the elders who were still bearing witness. A few wall trees, collapsed huts, overgrown faïsses with brambles, a water reserve, fruit trees and wild vines……..We planted more than 3,500 olive trees on the hillside, a veritable conservatory of Ardèche varieties (more than 25 varieties). We also take care of biodiversity by preserving bushes, woody plants, stone heaps and grassy areas, all potential shelters for animals that we hope will help us.
