We have been a family of lavender producers for several generations and it is part of our desire to respect the environment around us as it is our main treasure. Conscious of the exceptional environment we live in, one the entire world envies us, we act every day to preserve nature around us. No chemical weed killers. No treatments that are harmful for nature. This guarantees pure and natural essential oil without any trace of chemicals. We use sheep in the lavender fields, they do not like the taste of it and therefore rid us of the weeds they love and also naturally fertilise, helping the plants to thrive.
Our fields are all located in the Provence area, with a Mediterranean climate that lavender thrives on, in the historical lavender production area, with land conducive to the plant and where it can develop and be at its best as it has done naturally since antiquity. It can perfectly withstand drought on condition that it gets enough water during the flowering season in the spring.
The quality of the land and the climate have always been acknowledged as being particularly suitable for the plant. And the presence of these fundamentals makes our terroir the cradle of the plant even if you can also find it in other parts of the world. From distant times, lavender, a solid plant with few requirements, has been thriving wildly on poor, dry, stony sloping soils with carbonates (rendzina, or brown limy soils). Our fields are all located on suitable i.e. stony, dry and limestone soil. They are far away from the humid, clay areas and from the valley floors.
