Growing for more than 70 years
Cultivating an orchard is not just a business, it is a passion and an art
For more than 70 years, our family has been on a quest for excellence. Three generations span the roots of Domaine Bayard.
Having learnt from his father Raoul Favel’s expertise on the family farm in the Drôme department of France, George Favel set out on a quest to find exceptional land.
In 1982, this visionary creator acquired the Domaine de Collongue in the La Crau flood plain, just outside Arles. A pioneer in the steppes of the Coussouls de Crau, nestled between the Alpilles and the Mediterranean, he was able to make this unique terroir prosper and thrive.
Today, Olivier Favel is following in his father’s footsteps, paying homage to the family values and expertise, and elevating Domaine Bayard fruits to true excellence by:
"Growing quality produce with the environment as a key factor in production"
