In the Occitanie region, in southern France, artisanal fishing still continues in the Bassin de Thau as the oyster and mussel farmers busily harvest their shellfish. Between tradition and innovation, flower wines and the renowned seafood "tielle" and mussel "brasucade" bring a new energy to the surrounding area.

The Noyonnais

The Noyonnais, Hauts-de-France, was once renowned for its soft fruit. Now only a few die-hard growers still continue the tradition, and the same is true of the cake named after the region. The production of cheese with fenugreek, honey, whisky and gin are today helping to rejuvenate the area.

The Charolais Brionnais

In Charolais Brionnais, a region of Saône-et-Loire, most livestock farming remains extensive and cattle are still sold traditionally at the market in Saint-Christophe. Whilst the local dessert, the "cacou" is celebrated by its brotherhood, others are busy farming snails or harvesting the produce of the old vines.
