In Saint-Fraimbault (Orne, Basse-Normandie) the organic certified farm Ferme de la Poulardière of the brothers Dominique, Michel and Stephane Leroyer has been located since 1998. They produce cider, poiré, fruit juices and vinaigre de cidre. It is a mixed farm where the dairy cows fertilize the orchards during the growing season.
30 different poiré pears are used in the Domfront. These are often small pears such as Rouge Vigné, Gros Blot, Plant Roux, De Cloche and Gaubert. In order to be allowed to carry the appellation Appellation d'Origine Protégé Domfront, the poiré must also consist of at least 40% from the juicy and sour Plant de Blanc pears.
