Our family has been on our farm for about 7 generations, one of our ancestors bought it. This building was built in 1803. As far back as we can go, we have always grown cereals. In the early 1950s, we decided to stop cows. In 1974 an old house was destroyed along the roadside and replaced by our hangar. In 1960 grandfather Baudet, Jean-Paul planted our first apple trees. In 1984 the son Jean René started working with his father by continuing the same cultures. During the time of the Carrefour shopping centre, we delivered our apples. When they left in 1992, we started the markets in Lausanne at rue de Bourg. In 2009 the Amy family who sold their groceries in front of the home decided to stop. We were liquidating a lot of our harvest through them.
We then made the decision to take over the markets in front of us. In 2018, the son Damien has just finished his CFC with Organic specialization, which is why in the near future we will take the step of a conversion to organic. Meanwhile, Damien will start growing some vegetables without treatment on the farm. And we still have a lot of projects in our heads.
We then go to the market every Friday from 1:30 pm to 6:30 pm in our shed on “chemin du village 12” with Sandrine Overney, a cheese maker with her refrigerated truck. You will find several varieties of apples and pears and also some vegetables that we are starting to sell by completing with the farmers in the area. There is also meat, bread, oils, jams, etc. Then we sell our products in Lausanne at rue de Bourg. For large orders possibility by appointment.
We look forward to meeting you! Baudet Family
