Brothers Michel and Philippe Legallois are the 6th generation cider producers at their family farm, located just one kilometer from Omaha beach. More than 30 apple varieties are cultivated for their cidre bouché, which is made without the addition of extra sugar, resulting in a style of cider that is meant to be enjoyed with a meal and not just as an apéritif. The brothers also produce AOC Pommeau and AOC Calvados, which they sell at their well stocked boutique alongside other local products such as andouille de Vire, caramels from Isigny-sur-Mer and confiture de lait. Visits to see the farm and the cider making equipment are possible all year long.
