Our network of farmers

Launched in June 2021, "Vergers du Sud-Ouest" is a commercial network that brings French dried fruit producers together. Located in the South-West of France, the network already counts its first 6 members.

Passionate about their work, they produce numerous varieties of high quality dried fruits: walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pecan nuts and prunes. Selected on the basis of their exceptional taste qualities, our nuts are broken in just-in-time. In this way we guarantee unrivalled freshness.

Aware of the environmental stakes, our orchards are led in a reasoned way, respecting the natural balance of the fauna and flora. Some of our orchards are already certified Organic, wich is a great reward for the hard work of the farmer.

The quality of our Prunes from Agen

The prunes from Agen are renowned for their superior quality and delicious flavor. Among the various types of prunes, the certified IGP Pruneaux d'Agen semi-dried prunes stand out for their melt-in-your-mouth texture and delightfully sweet taste.

The IGP Pruneaux d'Agen certification guarantees the origin and quality of prunes that are grown and processed in the Lot-et-Garonne region in France. The semi-dried prunes are the result of 16 hours of drying in ovens at 70°C, until they reach 35% humidity in the fruit. Compared to rehydrated prunes, semi-dried prunes offer a vastly superior taste experience. Their soft and tender texture, combined with natural caramelization, is a delicacy that will pleasantly surprise you.

Finally, the ancestral know-how of prune producers lies in the management of plum orchards and the selection of the best plums during harvest. Like chefs in the kitchen, our farmers each have their own secrets to obtain an exceptional semi-dried prune.
