Larrous farm run by Félix Noblia in Bergouey-Viellenave, Pyrénées-Atlantiques
Originally from the Basque coast, Félix Noblia took over his uncle's farm in 2011. He is one of those farmers experimenting with new techniques focused on soil conservation. Over his 150 hectares of mostly meadowland, he has adopted dynamic rotational grazing, which allows him to entirely grass-feed his Angus and Blonde d’Aquitaine cows. They do not stay on the same plot of land for more than a day so as not to deplete the soil and encourage regrowth. Félix does not use any crop protection products, develops the seedlings directly under plant cover, tests combinations of species and observes the best yields. The young farmer uses the new online platform Landfiles on which he shares his experiments, data and results.
Félix is the mayor of his village, Bergouey-Viellenave, and vice-president of the association Fermes d’avenir.
Guided tour: Saturday 2 October from 2:30 pm to 4pm
