A bold project is underway at the foot of the spectacular Château de Beaumesnil. With a view to preserving culinary heritage, a conservational kitchen garden has been created. Open to the public, the garden contains over 500 varieties of ancient vegetables, including unusual varieties like devil's ear lettuce and rainbow corn. This is coupled with market garden production and the sale of organic vegetable boxes. Visitors can participate in workshops on vegetable growing and in September the 1001 Vegetables Festival is held.
