In the beginning: 1979, the Touret Farm
L’Herbier du Diois started as a small-scaled farm initiated by the Wartena and Vink families, friends from the Nerthelands who wished to return to the Earth. Implemented in Vachères-en-Quint, in the Department of Drôme, the Touret Farm became the first organic Aromatic Herbs farm in the local region of Diois. The seedlings and young plants came from wild herbs of the region, which initiated the transition from traditional harvesting areas to cultivated fields. The small farm refused from the start single-crop farming and decided to raise goats at the same time. We continue to encourage these methods and ideas amongst the producers we work with.
