Lavender from cuttings " lavande classique " blooming at farm of Lacontal Quercy
WELCOME TO THE LACONTAL FARM
Lavender grown in the Quercy area was once known for its specific properties. From 1950 to 1970, the producers in the Quercy were producing 10% of all the French lavender oil production. It has now been a decade since we decided to come back and reintroduce the cultivation of that plant our grandparents and their neighbours grew before us.
Here on our farm, we grow organic officinal lavender. We also distill it on the farm. Each product you may find here online or physically at our shop are made with our oil. We work with local craftpeople to propose by-products such as soaps, candles, sweets or meringues.
You may come and enjoy our lavender fields blooming from mid-June to the end of July - it all depends on the weather. We then harvest and distill their flowers till the end of summer.
