A long time ago my ancestors began to harvest lavender using a simple sickle in the mountains of Haute Provence.
The men used large bags called ‘bourras’ to bring the harvest back to the farm where quite often the women took care of distilling it in the traditional stills. My entire childhood was bathed in the tales of this ancestral work and I was fascinated by my family’s passion for this plant.
Since the end of the Second World War, harvesting has become modern, automatic and mechanical, making man’s work easier.
But another of our unique points is that we have kept traditional harvesting methods which help to preserve the most precious virtues of the plant. Conscious of the exceptional environment we live in, one the entire world envies us, we act every day to preserve nature around us.
