Its flat and sandy land is suited to growing vegetables, such as leeks, and some flowers. Saint-Julien-de-Concelles also grows the grapes on its hills that produce local Muscadet wine. A large lake, known as the Plan d'Eau du Chêne, is located near to the center of Saint-Julien-de-Concelles. The lake supports sailing, fishing, various sports and attracts walkers and nature lovers.
