are we?

our family adventure

Our startup is, first and foremost, the story of a family with strong agricultural roots. The story of Christian, a horticulturist for 30 years and himself the son of a market gardener, who made an observation shared by all his colleagues: climate change makes working on the land even more difficult.

So, in the face of an economic and environmental crisis, he dreamed up the Ombrea system and joined forces with his daughter, Julie, a journalist by profession, to launch his startup.

Julie Davico-Pahin

Co-founder, Co-CEO

Julie is a journalist and lawyer by training: having passed by the national newsrooms, her heart is set on defending the cause of as many farmers as possible.

Christian Davico

Co-founder, Co-CEO

Christian, a horticulturist in Provence, knows the agricultural sector and its unique characteristics like the back of his hand. He is well-suited to managing the R&D, thanks to his engineering background.

a dedicated team

Environmentalists at heart, passionate about gardening, adventurers… We love people who are a little bit different! One thing connects us all: our desire to build agriculture that is sustainable and engaged.
