  • Description


    We are a family that produces, processes and sells products derived from hemp (flowers, oils, creams, food). Our cultivation is natural, we use only good soil and water. This project was born from the passion of two young graduates in Gastronomic Sciences and is based on values of sustainability, respect and quality of products.
    We are probably the only one that sells hemp that does not use disposable plastic.
    Our field is located south of the Swiss mountains at the edge of the forest, 30 minutes from our home.

  • Help


    We need help doing gardening and garden work, as well as working at home so we can devote more time ourselves to our business. You can work in the garden and take care of the plants or collect vegetables and fruits, cut the lawn in the garden, collect the leaves in the garden. At home you can help to cook lunches, dinners, or to make jams, liqueurs and other preparations that every now and then we do. For example, we have prepared many different products from lemons (jam, syrup, candied fruit, jelly, salt, tea peel, bitter sauce, liqueur).
    My cousin and I are two gastronomes and there are always many ideas to be developed and that we can implement together.
