Why did you decide to grow mushrooms?
After working 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry, I wanted a change of life: to live elsewhere and work differently. We chose an old mansion in Allenc, with land, spring and outbuildings.
Professionally, I was looking for something original in Lozère, an innovative profession…
I quickly developed a taste for picking wild mushrooms, which allowed me to have the idea of setting up a mushroom farm, especially since our dependencies have the right conditions for growing mushrooms, in terms of humidity and temperature.
We launched in 4 months of work for the rehabilitation of the stable and the floor for the creation of mushroom farms.
Did you have to take any training?
Holder of a baccalaureate, I was then trained to have the status of Technician Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs in a pharmaceutical industry. I had to take a professional immersion with 2 mushroom growers to improve my knowledge in this field.
