Le Grand Laval farm run by Sébastien Blache and Elsa Gärtner in Montélier, Drôme

In 2006, Sébastien Blache left the National Natural History Museum where he was a naturalist and ornithologist to take over his grandfather's farm in the Drôme region. His aim is to bring life back to the farming environment. For birds, insects and small animals, he plants hedges and has set up dozens of nesting boxes tailored to different species. His mixed farm includes an orchard, a hen house and a flock of ewes. Planting trees all over the farm and growing fruit, cereals and legumes significantly contribute to developing biodiversity.
