Different types of fruit are present in Lozère, especially in the south where we can find many chestnut trees. Many jobs are created through the harvesting and processing of chestnuts, apples, pears and red berries. For a healthy diet, we can bite into fruit at any time of the day.
Thanks to them, we produce delicious jams to spread on a slice of bread. We also make refreshing lemonade and juice for whenever you fancy a fruity drink !
Here is a selection of local producers specialized in the harvesting of fruit, and/or their processing into juices, lemonades and jams/spreads… all of them healthy products!
