The ecosystem of the plot


This plot offers a peaceful environment. The brown clays shelter a teeming life, with an abundance of organic matter allowing the local biodiversity to thrive and store a large amount of humus. The black color of the soil clearly testifies to this.


The soil is mainly composed of brown clays mixed with numerous hard limestone stones from the Thanetian. At a depth of 2.20 meters, the first veins of Campanian chalk begin to appear.
