Pomme Evelina Perlim

A family business
A traditional of excellence

In the 1950, Guy Chauffaille introduced the Golden Delicious apple and modern tree growing techniques to the Limousin region of France. His guiding principle was that of innovative fruit tree excellence.

These efforts have been rewarded by France only PDO for an apple, the “Pomme du Limousin”.

This tradition of excellence has been faithfully handed down to the next two generations, which are now at the helm of PERLIM. They have three main principles: diversification of species to suit the local territory and our flavour culture, a technical vision inspired by modern agroecological methods, and customised “handmade” service for the most demanding retailers and wholesalers.

Species diversification for taste,
inspired by our high-altitude areas.

The high-altitude Golden Delicious is the original PERLIM variety. However, with the five other varieties now cultivated in our orchards, our diversification efforts have become a well-thought out and tangible reality. All our varieties are carefully selected for maximum flavour and taste enjoyment and to suit our high-altitude areas.

Perlim® innovates using all aspects of contemporary agroecological principles.

PERLIM: sustainable and responsible agriculture and continuous improvement efforts driven by a culture of responsibility and integrity. We want to produce local fruit, that is both tasty and attractive, using innovative agroecological methods that respect everyone and everything.

We use mechanical weeding methods for all our production areas. 100% of our farmers are committed to preserving biodiversity and protecting pollinators (plantation of melliferous hedges, sowing of melliferous flowers on fallow land, installation of nesting boxes, creation of ecological corridors, etc.).

At present, 10% of our land is organically cultivated or in the process of converting to organic methods, and 100% of our orchards have signed the "Charter for better integration of Pomme du Limousin production".
