AT THE HEART OF L'AUBIER IS THE STRIVING TO REALISE ITS IDEALS, SOMETHING WE HAVE BEEN ENDEAVOURING TO DO FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS – FIRST AT MONTEZILLON, THEN IN NEUCHÂTEL.
From its beginnings in the autumn of 1979, L'AUBIER has practiced bio-dynamic agriculture. With this method applied to the entire farm, its holistic perspective and sustainable aspect also informs all the details of L'AUBIER as a company in many ecological realisations.
From the outset, this impulse has been shared with and carried by its customers and supporters – an essential exchange that has gradually become transformed into a strong degree of financial commitment. This partnership with a large number of individuals has arisen and been strengthened over the years through transparent relationships and clear accounts.
Both in Switzerland and internationally, L'AUBIER is committed to the development of ideas related to bio-dynamic agriculture and associative economics, in regard to both the research and training that belongs to it. As a pioneer initiative, L'AUBIER is therefore well-known for its commitment as well as for its achievements.
At L'AUBIER, the human being is the measure of everything – considered as an evolving being, aware of the needs of the world, and endowed with a free will with which to respond to them. It is in such human capital that the true value of a company resides. L'AUBIER’s constitution protects and ensures sustainability. To this end, the majority vote belongs to a small internal ‘public benefit’ association.
Led by a team of five, carried by a staff of fifty, encouraged and financed by 726 voting shareholders*, 143 non-voting sharholders*, 172 lenders* and 547 bond-holders*, L'AUBIER demonstrates its commitment to sustainable, human development.
