For centuries, the salt are the inheritors and guardians of a unique heritage. Being a magician is paludier: the drop of water, extract the grain of salt. The job of paludier is one of the few professions agricultural uses a technique free of mechanization and chemical inputs. This technique allows small-scale production both to produce a salt of quality and maintain an exceptional site. The salt marsh is the man. Few professions in our country are still very manual, borrowing ancient techniques and tools for hundreds of years ago. In the salt marshes of Guerande, the tradition continues and the balance between man and nature is real.
