Spring has arrived!
The sunny days are back, the temperatures are milder, nature is reborn and offers us its fruits and vegetables:
Vegetables: artichokes, eggplants, beets, chards, cabbages, cucumbers, watercress, spinach, potatoes, fennel, tomatoes, lettuce, asparagus, peppers, onion…
Fruits: bananas, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, passion fruits, currants, kiwis, mangoes, apricots…
Spring, our Le Rustique cow’s favorite season. After spending some time in the barn during winter, they finally come out to the meadow where the grass is fresh and oily. This allows the milk to be richer and our cheeses to be delicious!
The sun is at its peak!
Temperatures are the highest and the days are the longest of the year. The sun generously diffuses its light and warmth, and seasonal fruits and vegetables reflect this generosity:
Vegetables: asparagus, red beets, broccoli, carrots, onion, corn pickles, spinach, courgette, green beans, romaine lettuce, peppers, peas …
Fruits: apricots, plums, grapes, strawberries, watermelon, figs, mangoes, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches…
It’s summer and our Le Rustique cows are hot. They seek shade and hydrate, water is an indispensable resource for the cow to make its milk.
Nature is wearing all its colors!
During autumn, temperatures begin to drop, the weather becomes more cloudy, rainy and windy. But autumn can still give beautiful sunny and mild days, and fruits and vegetables such as:
Vegetables: beets, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, salsify, pumpkins, squash, onion, celery, walnuts, leeks, artichokes…
Fruits: blackberries, apple, fig, grapes…
During this season, cows are still often in the meadows. To produce milk in quantity and quality, the cows must ingest between 60 and 80 kg of grass, hay or silage daily.
The magic of winter and its holiday season!
The days are shorter than the nights and the temperatures are getting lower and lower. And yet, nature continues to provide us with its benefits:
Vegetables: endives, leeks, mash, crosne, pumpkin, chicory, parsnips, onion, chard, cardoon, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, pak choi, swedes, sweet potatoes…
