The association was created in 2004, the project consists in manufacturing and marketing a baguette from wheat produced, stored and crushed on the territory of Picardie Maritime (more precisely the Bay of Somme). The name of this baguette is the same as that of the association and is also the name of the emblematic bird of this beautiful region.
The stakes of the project are various:
This project is the result of a commitment by the entire sector (farmers, economic organizations, millers and bakers). It is a collective work on a daily basis, each one working together for the same objective.
Precise specifications must be respected: specific artisanal production (old varieties of wheat, special oven), sustainable agriculture etc…
The association’s objective is to promote this product in order to make it known to the local inhabitants but also to the tourists likely to come and visit the region. This territory is so particular, so rich in experiences and encounters, that it was unthinkable not to have a local baguette.
