La Spiruline des Oliviers (EARL La Perdrerie)
We are Olivier and Agnès. We produce spirulina, organic citrus fruit, organic apricots and olives to make PDO Aix-en-Provence olive oil on our family-run estate.
Olivier and Agnès Serradimigni own a family-run estate, passed down through the generations, and they decided to get the best out of the farming legacy their ancestors left behind by returning to farming practices that respect both the environment and the consumers.
"We planted 3 hectares of olive trees on the ancient farmland. In our greenhouses, we have the following:
- a 2-hectare grove of organically farmed apricot trees
- a 1-hectare grove of organically farmed citrus fruit trees
- a 100% French 650 m2 spirulina farm"
Spirulina is available to purchase all year round in dried form, powder form or tablets, as well as PDO Aix-en-Provence olive oil. Apricots are harvested at the beginning of May, and citrus fruits between September and March.
We propose a 1-hour visit to discover the cultivation of spirulina, citrus fruits and organic apricots in glass greenhouses, with the option of purchasing the products on site. The visit starts with a retrospective about the farm and our family. In fact, from generation to generation, our farming family has followed the agricultural evolution of Marseille for more than a century until the 1950s and the disappearance of the green belt on the plain of Berre-l'Etang in 1952. We decided to completely change our farm with the desire to grow in respect of our environment and consumers. We have created a spirulina culture on 650m², as well as an organic olive orchard and have chosen to plant 3 hectares of organic apricots and citrus fruits under glass greenhouses.
