On the plateau d’Albion in Provence, at 1,100 metres altitude in sight of Mont Ventoux, the Fra family have been growing and distilling Lavender since 1916. Our Lavender oil, which is both Appelation d’Origin Controlee/Protégé and certified organic comes from this farm.

Each plant is different on this farm where the plants are grown using wild seeds from the region. This gives the essential oil a unique rich aroma and is the most important criteria for the Appelation d’Origin Controlee/Protégé.

On this organic farm, the sheep keep the weeds under control. Every spring and autumn they are set to work in the fields, where they eat the weeds in preference to the Lavender. It is a delicate process. They need a calm atmosphere in which to work or they will damage the plants.
