Apprentices: tomorrow’s farmers

Even if Aurélien isn’t in his proof in the field, he was able to quickly find his place with the farmer Deodatian. “My goal is to take over from my parents who are also farmers. So I’m already in business, but seeing other farms and how other farmers work is also rewarding,” says the young man.

Planting wheat, corn or tilling the soil, Aurélien enjoyed a bit of everything alongside Dimitri. “I was looking for milk production. I was a little afraid of large farms from an accounting point of view, so when I had the opportunity to come to Dimitri, who has a human-sized farm, I jumped at the chance,” explains Aurélien.
