Apples from Maine-et-Loire
François’ 144 hectares of Pom’Ligne orchards have been operating since 1993, across two villages in Maine-et-Loire, which is France’s top apple-growing region because of its terroir and climate. Lots of apple varieties have originated from there.

Apples grown using agro-ecology techniques
To find a way out of intensive production, François turned to agroecology in the early 2000s. This technique includes covering the soil to replenish its nutrients and carefully regulating weed killer usage to protect organic life.
