L'affleur des collines
L'affleur des collines is a small farm specialised in aromatic and medicinal plants located in Sisteron in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department, at the entrance of the beautiful Jabron valley.
The plants are grown which respects nature. A small greenhouse of 50m2 protects frost-sensitive and fragile species. Water, essential for production, is brought to the plants by drop-by-drop.
The pickings are made by hand in the garden and in the surrounding hills. Afterwards, the plants are dried on wooden and linen grids, in a dark and well-ventilated room.
All the raw materials used for the transformations (salts, oils, balms, creams) come from organic farming.
Developed with patience and passion, we offer simple products, with the aim of accentuate the favours and properties of plants as closely as possible to traditional uses.
Aromatic and medicinal plants have been used for centuries to treat minor and major ailments, and today we tend to forget this ancestral knowledge.
This is why I am committed to offering you derivative products from plants specifically selected for your well-being, in order to help safeguard these simple uses.
The main production of my small farm are hydrolats or floral water, distilled in an old-fashioned copper still. I also offer balms and maceration oils. Herbal teas, in thematic blends, are also produced throughout the year as well as herbs and salts.
