La ferme de Léchelle

A bit of history!

Located 12 km from Soissons in Berzy-le-Sec, the Léchelle Field Farm presents a beautiful farmhouse typical of the Soissonnais region of the 17th century. Its owners Camille and Gaëtan will be delighted to show you the site’s operation as well as their mill.

Their agro-ecologically grown wheat allows for the manufacture of a unique flour which comes in different consumable varieties. Its assertive character, taste, as well as its authenticity make it very popular with consumers. It also has the advantage of being very easy and simple to cook!
