    I went to "refuel" juice of apples and pears last week. It's almost 10 years that I us to get me here. We were alone when we arrived in the parking lot, no other cars while it was 10:00. We bought with my girlfriend a couple of cartons of 6 bottles... for almost € 200. The staff is usually pretty nice, we proposed to taste the juice before buying. But this was not the case this time. The saleswoman was friendly, not smiling, I think it happened too early, we had to bother! This year, don't we were nothing offered, despite a purchase of 90 bottles, believe that it is the crisis... The icing on the cake: the saleswoman was get the boxes, dropped near the counter then went about his business in the opposite room, leaving us only with our order! Not a "thank you" and not a "Goodbye". If I had not already paid, I would have left everything on the spot. My girlfriend and I were speechless... Like what, when the cat is not the, smile them dance... A pity... Next time, we'll go out to the farm of bliss... I think you will be better served...

    A small but good selection of local preserves, cheeses, caramels, juices, and ciders. Friendly staff make this a nice, quick stop for something to take home.

    The wonderful staff here helped us select a wonderful Calvados to bring home for ourselves (and treats for our family). Knowledgeable and generous with their time and information, we really enjoyed our visit to this distillery. The staff was also bilingual and friendly, all in all, a great experience. Can't wait to order more from this Calvados producer. Oh, and the Calvados--smooth, bourbon-like, and wonderful with an apple-crisp finish.

    Very friendly people. Got a free degustation and decided to buy the "Saporange". A cider based liquor with a fresh orange taste. It's sold in a classy bottle that can be used as a fancy water bottle afterwards.
