Family estate in Organic Agriculture since 1997 in a typical setting of the Pays d’Auge. 17th century house combining tradition and innovation in both buildings and products. Domain very often rewarded in competitions.
The Domaine de la Galotière was bought in 1963 by Claude and Janine Olivier. At the time it was a typical grass farm in the Pays d’Auge, combining dairy farming and apple production. Claude Olivier started producing cider and Calvados at the beginning of the 80s. In 1991, Jean-Luc Olivier, his son, joined his parents and developed the cider activity by specializing the domain shortly in PDO ciders Pays of Auge. In 1997, the estate began its conversion to organic farming and it is today one of the only ones able to offer organic Calvados in more than 10 years. We offer a wide range of Pays d’Auge ciders, special cuvées suitable for all. Also Pays d’Auge calvados from 3 years to over 20 years of age as well as a Pommeau de Normandie regularly medalist (prize of excellence in 2018) at the Concours Général Agricole. A veritable postcard from the Pays d’Auge, the family estate covers 45 hectares of orchards and transforms all the pears and apples on the farm. About fifty varieties of apples are present, some of which only exist in the Vimoutiers region. We develop natural, authentic and innovative products and export 15% of our production to ten countries. Do not hesitate to contact us or come and meet us if you can.
