Welcome to La Galotière
Nestled in a valley of the Pays-d’Auge, in the Orne department, the Galotière estate has been producing apple and pear products of outstanding quality since 1963.
Jean-Luc and Nathalie Olivier welcome you throughout the year to introduce you to their range of produce which, for the most part, is certified Organic and “Protected Designation of Origin” (AOC:Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée and AOP: Appellation d’Origine Protégée).
The estate covers an area of 45 hectares of orchards : 43 hectares of apple trees and 2 hectares of pear trees. With 50 varieties of Normandy and Pays-d’Auge apples and 10 varieties of pears, the farm produces between 150 and 300 tonnes of fruit per year, all of which is converted on -site into La Galotière’s range of products.
Today the business in run by Jean-Luc and Nathalie Olivier, with the help of their 4 employees.
La Galotière is one of the few estates to produce organic old calvados over 10 years, as it has been certified Organic since 2000.
We are also specialists in top-of-the-range cider and perry, like the “cuvée prestige millésimée” and the “cuvée élixcidre”, produced using tradition methods.
