PRODUCTION ROOTED IN THE HEART OF A RICH REGION
The cooperative to pool the resources of committed producers
Our farms have remained modestly sized, based on the family farming model. We have chosen to form ourselves into a cooperative to carry more influence in the sector, while sharing our facilities.
With these facilities and our expertise, we can offer attractive volumes and high-quality products from Provence in France.
Our aim is to enhance natural Mediterranean heritage by cultivating traditional and emblematic plants of the Provence region, particularly thyme and rosemary.
We now offer you the opportunity to work with a shorter supply chain, without intermediaries, direct from production.
Contributing to the beauty of Provençal landscapes
Aromatic plant producers are involved in developing their land to participate in the development of rural areas, particularly in dry mountains.
Growing thyme, oregano, winter savory and rosemary contributes to the beauty of the landscapes found in Provence. Committed to preserving this heritage, we maintain and pass on our techniques by sharing our knowledge and by constantly improving our activity.
Our cooperative is located in Trets at the foot of the Sainte-Victoire mountain.
