About us

 In order to better understand who we are, we asked the President, Maurice Treboux, to tell us a few words about it.

 "The PDRA Ouest vaudois, a project for the development and encouragement of local agriculture, is made up of four distinct projects. These projects are carried out by more than 280 farming families and are supported by the Confederation, the canton of Vaud and the regions concerned. They are La Maison des vins in Mont/Rolle, La fromagerie de l'Etraz in Senarclens, the relocation of the CARRE slaughterhouse in Aubonne, and the improvement of the reception facilities in several alpine chalets in the Vaud Jura under the name Harmonie d'alpages. Together with the partner farms, these structures are the ambassadors and showcases of a dynamic agricultural region, with the common theme of "Born, raised and processed in Western Vaud".

It is in these ideal conditions that we are ready to welcome you, families, SMEs, various groups, ready to make you discover our profession, our products, in a few words ''The best of the West Vaudois''! So don't hesitate any longer, come and spend unforgettable moments on a farm, visit an artisanal dairy or taste a great wine from the hillsides of La Côte. "
