Patrick Ochs & Chantal are “oliverons”, that means olive growers and millers. This implies two different knowledge but very complementary. The expertise of growers allows them to give the utmost care to their olive trees and their olives.
The expertise of miller gives them the necessary requirement to develop an olive character. And they control the entire chain from olive to olive oil.
The traditional mill is certified organic and meets all international food standards. The olives are sorted, washed and then crushed between granite millstones that rotate slowly so as not to heat the fruit. The olive paste is then kneaded thoroughly to establish and intense fruity oil that are part of the typical characteristics of olive oils from Haute Provence.
Finally, the mainstream press with the “stainless steel” mats allows the extraction of olive oil by simple mechanical process. This is an extra virgin olive oil, truly cold pressed.
