Description

The county of the Vaucluse puts its soil under the spotlight again through a gourmet products shop called ‘’ La Vauclusienne ‘’. The public could thereby discover 150 products from the Vaucluse on the stands of the store during the International Agricultural Show.

Elegance, authenticity, know-how… All those qualities define the character of ‘’ La Vauclusienne ‘’, chose as an ambassadress of the products and the soil of the Vaucluse. She is a reference to the emblematic person of ‘’ La Parisienne ‘’ and has been created to encourage the visitors of the International Agricultural Show to taste and buy more than 150 different products of our county. Those products are the embodiment of know-how and excellence : almond, olive oil, fruit juice, confectionery, spelt, saffron, honey, torrone, syrup, jam, beer and wine.  Last but not least the truffles and the candied fruits which are part of the fame of the Vaucluse.
This agricultural show is the occasion to recall the strong agricultural and pastoral tradition of the Vaucluse represented by several major activities  :  the development of agroecology, the enhancement of the land and its local products, the support for the upgrading of the agricultural holdings, the development of short supply chains, the valuation of farming areas and the preservation of pastoralism. 

The promotion of short supply chains
Since 2009 the county of the Vaucluse work in patnership with local people and collective restaurants thanks to its internet platform «  Agrilocal84.fr » . Its aim is to improve the qualiti of the food in middle school.  This is also the goal of the operation «  Au pré de l’assiette », organised last october with 3 000 students in middle-school (and 2 000 in primary) who enjoyed a meal cooked with 100% local products. 

The enhancement of the agricultural world
Since 2018 the county launched a new apparatus, «  Graines d’avenir », which allows young farmers to be helped with useful equipement to strengthen their new exploitation in the first 5 years.

An excellent agriculture
The Vaucluse is one of the French counties leaders in agriculture thanks to a lot of fields of production : 1st  national producer of cherries, grapes, and truffles, 2nd producer of pears and lavander and 3rd producer of strawberries, apples and PDO wines (AOP).  The Vaucluse is particularly known in the wine sector : 145 out of 151 towns in the county are - partially or entirely – in CDO ( Controled Designation of Origin ) or in PDO areas (  Protected Designation of Origin ) which gathers prestigious wine brands such as Vacqueyras, Côtes-du-Rhône or Gigondas.
