Frenchman Alain Passard, according to the Australian, bought the Chateau du Gros Chesnay a few years ago through a unique French process.
The process is when a younger person buys the property of an older person when that older individual is still alive, reported the Australian.
Francemag said that Passard grows produce on the Chateau with no chemicals and no mechanical machinery.
According to the Australian, Passard bought the Chateau from a French grande dame who is happy tending to the house while Passard works on the grounds.
Passard grows produce to supply a restaurant and said that he learned the importance of his techniques from his grandmother, reported Francemag.
He enjoys observing his garden and has made quite an agreeable living from doing what he loves.
