We have produced olive oil for five generations. Our olive plantation is located in a small valley at the heart of the Natural Park of the Alpilles Mountains. At this special place, we make our own virgin olive oil, by cold extraction, according to strict production and growing techniques which enable us to obtain the A.O.P (protected designation of origin) classification of the Baux de Provence Valley and for organic agriculture.

We welcome you for a cultural half day walk among the pine trees and an olive plantation to make you discover the history of the olive tree and tell you about our profession.

This walk will be divided into three parts:

- Reception at the olive plantation with a history of the implantation of the olive tree in the Baux de Provence Valley and our A.O.P classification. We will explain all about olive tree growing with a demonstration of machines ( trimming, organic treatment, collection , depending on the season).

- During a half day walk, we will discover the large number of varieties that can be found in the Baux valley and we hold in store a few surprises for you along the way.

- Back to the mas (a typical farmhouse of Provence), in the shade of centenary plane trees, we will teach you how to savour our olive oils(from green fruit and black fruit), which are typical of the A.O.P Baux de Provence Valley. A snack made with local products will be offered.

Useful Information

Water, hats and sneakers are recommended. No particular physical condition required, we adapt our walk to our guests.
Thank you to report to the meeting-place at 9:30 am in order to start on time.

Please note that I need a minimum of 5 participants to be able to run the activity at the indicated price. Should I not have enough people signed up for the activity, I will suggest another date or you can be fully reimbursed.
