    • We are producers and processors of Agen prunes, the emblematic product of Lot et Garonne. We cultivate Plum d'Ente on approximately 30 hectares and we ensure all the processing operations of the Prune d'Ente to make Pruneaux d'Agen in accordance with the specifications of the IGP (Indicator Protected Geographical).

      We produce an artisanal Agen Prune, tasty, soft and melting in the mouth. True to our quality approach, it is made naturally, without any chemical preservatives.

      Thus, you will find in our shop, which is open all year round, a wide range of Plain Agen Prunes of different sizes. But also Filled Prunes, Coated Prunes, Pavés Agenais (a paste of prunes coated with different chocolates, with or without hazelnut chips). Different prune creams will satisfy your taste buds. Without forgetting the flagship product of Lot-et-Garonne, the famous Prune with Armagnac. "Homemade recipes" of Prunes in Brandy or Whiskey, terrines and other delicacies will also whet your appetite.

      For 2 years we have also been producers of soilless strawberries, we cultivate Gariguette and Charlotte from the end of February to the end of October. Our sweet, juicy and fragrant strawberries are also produced with the greatest respect for the environment.

      As we are passionate about our profession, we created Le Musée du Pruneau, unique in Lot et Garonne, to tell the story of plums and prunes from the 12th century to today.

    Really informative visit and well curated space. Audio guide gave lots of growing history and heritage context to this proud growing provenance. Doesn't take ages to see it all, but definitely a short and sweet excursion. We would recommend to people in the area. Some great products available to buy in the shop too.

    Interesting museum on working plum/prune farm. Multilingual audio guide included in entrance fee (of 5€ for an adult but check website), provides the historical details. A film brings in the present day farm and processes. Excellent tasting with parking for motorhome overnight.

    Really lovely selfguided tour with audio guide headsets and a tasting at the end. Learnt that "Agen Prunes" are called that because that was where they were shipped from. Feel annoyed for Villeneuve area where they are actually grown! Lots of other interesting insights to be had as well as 'silly photo' opportunities using the cardboard cut out face tableau. The Prunes in Eau De Vie from the shop are AMAZING. Weighed a tonne but still brought sone home on flight 😁
