Producer of cider and cider-based products, the GAEC de Claids farm is situated in the Le Cotentin area of Normandy.

Cre­ated in 1992, the GAEC, “groupe­ment d’exploitation en commun” [joint farm­ing syn­dic­ate], is made up of three part­ners: Alain Dauget, Vin­cent August and Emmanuel Legardinier.

From the begin­ning, we have kept a herd of dairy cows on the farm for their milk and beef. As there were orch­ards on the farm and we are com­mit­ted to pre­serving our her­it­age, we decided to devel­op our cider-based production.

Our orch­ards, loc­ated 10km from the sea, on the west coast of Le Cotentin, were planted in 1992, 1996 and 2006 taking account of the dom­in­ant west­erly winds when choos­ing the plots and plant­ing wind­break hedges.

The qual­ity of our products has been recog­nised by numer­ous awards received in agri­cul­tur­al com­pet­i­tions, espe­cially for our AOP (PDO) Cotentin cider, which is nat­ur­ally spark­ling and craf­ted from 100% pure juice.

We enjoy a repu­ta­tion as a high-qual­ity farm pro­du­cer in Le Cotentin and through­out Normandy.
