Domaine de la Flaguerie is a family farm located in the Bessin region of Normandy since 1835. Our orchards are managed organically and we process our apples into the traditional local products.

A family farm cre­ated in 1835, Domaine de la Flaguer­ie is loc­ated in the Bessin region of Normandy, a region with numer­ous tour­ist attrac­tions includ­ing Bayeux and its tapestry, the Normandy land­ing beaches and the Caen Memori­al. The mead­ows are planted with apple trees for the pro­duc­tion of cider, Pom­meau de Nor­man­die and Calvados on the farm.

Today, René Pet­rich has more than 40 hec­tares of orch­ards that have been man­aged organ­ic­ally for over 20 years. Their high stem and low stem apple trees grow on well-exposed clay-lime­stone hill­sides in shal­low soil. This typ­ic­al Bessin terroir has proven to be very suit­able for organ­ic agri­cul­ture, of which it was one of the pion­eers. René’s focus is first and fore­most on the qual­ity of his apples, as well as main­tain­ing his modern pro­duc­tion facil­it­ies that guar­an­tee a fruit pro­cessing of high quality.

We are determ­ined to pro­tect our tra­di­tions and nature and we manage our orch­ards organ­ic­ally. These orch­ards give us over 700 tons of apples each year for the pro­duc­tion of our Calvados, Pom­meau de Nor­man­die, ciders, apple juices, apple cider vin­eg­ars and apple jellies.

We care­fully select ciders for dis­til­la­tion that will allow us to offer con­nois­seurs farm-dis­tilled Calvados aged in the finest oak bar­rels, where they acquire fin­esse and round­ness. They are selec­ted by our cellar master with the assist­ance of our best and most exper­i­enced tasters.

Our Pom­meau de Nor­man­die is craf­ted from a selec­tion of organ­ic apples using our savoir-faire in what is known as “mutage” which con­sists of mixing cider apple juice and Calvados. Aged tra­di­tion­ally in old oak bar­rels, our Pom­meau de la Flaguer­ie acquires a remark­able taste and colour.

Our farm is open to vis­it­ors all year round. We provide a 90-minute guided tour (from Monday to Friday, at 10:30 and 15:30) or you can take a self-guided tour. These are fol­lowed by a tast­ing of our products in our shop. Our farm is ideally loc­ated for those wish­ing to visit Caen (15 minutes) and Bayeux (10 minutes).

The Domaine can be reached by car or bus from Caen or Bayeux, via the RN13, exit Lou­celles D148b, Martragny Car­cagny and then follow the signs.

Through its net­work of part­ners, Domaine de la Flagueire is able to recom­mend the best places in the area — hotels, chambres d’hôtes, res­taur­ants, bars, local activ­it­ies. For fur­ther inform­a­tion, check out our web­site or con­tact us on Tel +33 (0)
