Formerly, in the agricultural and wine-growing villages, the mixed-farming was necessary so that the families for the majority large, can survive.
We cultivated fields, meadows, vineyeards, kitchen garden and fruit trees.
We raised pets and the livestock for the meat, eggs and milk ; horses or oxen for tillage.
Jacques, the youngest of brothers who was attracted by the culture of the vines, made it his principal profession in Wettolsheim.
