Early in his career, Puech d’Alissac assumed the Presidency of Young Farmers of Seine-Maritime from 1993 to 1997. He was also a member of the Board of Young Farmers national association (JA) from 1996 to 2001, where he took the responsibility for European issues. His in-depth knowledge of the European Institutions allowed him to be elected by his peers to the Presidency of the European Council of Young Farmers (CEJA) from 1999 to 2001 during the CAP reform under Commissioner Franz Fischler. Additionally, he was particularly involved in the policy of setting up young farmers in the European Union. His work at CEJA led him to negotiate on numerous agricultural topics and communication issues. Originally from Rouen, Normandy, Puech d’Alissac settled with his wife Elizabeth on a farm of 120 hectares in Pissy-Pôville (15 km West of Rouen) in 1992, where they continue to produce poultry, grain and raise beef cattle to this day.
