About Me, Christophe

Early Beginnings: A Child’s Fascination with Strawberries

My story with strawberries began not in a vast field or a bustling market, but in the simple backyard of my childhood home. As a young boy, I was captivated by the vibrant reds and the sweet aroma of strawberries.

This fascination quickly grew into a hobby, as I spent countless hours tending to my small strawberry patch, marveling at each berry’s journey from a tiny flower to a juicy fruit. It was in these early years that my deep-rooted love for strawberries was nurtured – a love that would eventually define my life’s path.

Journey of Expertise: From Gardening School to Strawberry Maestro

My passion for strawberries guided me to a specialized gardening school at the age of 12 back in 1989, where I was the youngest in a class of future horticulturists. Immersed in a world of professional growers and botanists, I absorbed every bit of knowledge about strawberry cultivation.

This experience laid the foundation for my expertise, blending academic learning with practical fieldwork. Over the years, I worked at various strawberry farms, honing my skills and deepening my understanding of these enchanting fruits. My journey from a curious student to a strawberry maestro was paved with dedication, learning, and an unwavering passion for strawberries.
