Economy

Agriculture

The rolling hills of Aubigny are particularly conducive to the cultivation of strawberries. Strawberries are planted in late summer: August and September. In February, they are mulched and tarpaulined to protect them from spring frosts. Harvest begins in late April or, at the latest, mid-May if it is a very cold year. Strawberries are harvested by hand and placed in 500 g or 250 g trays then sold in the markets of Laon, Saint-Quentin, Charleville-Mézières, and Epernay. In recent years, varieties have multiplied: Gariguette, Ciflorette, Mara des bois, Darselect, and finally the famous forest strawberry (in order of seasonal arrival).
