Who are we Family production of Olive Oil in Provence
In 1999 we had finally managed to find the rare pearl ! An agricultural land of 17 hectares in one piece. Three years of research have finally come to fruition, and we could start realizing our project. We wanted to set up as an olive oil producer and raise our daughters in the countryside, far from the city. Laurent Badré wanted to continue the activity of his grandparents who, once, had olive trees in the Var. The olive tree is a passion, a vocation that is transmitted from generation to generation.
The ground being bare, everything had to be done. Step by step, one by one, we planted 4000 olive trees on 12 hectares. From the beginning our daughters helped us with the works, finally 2 of the 3, because the last was born at the same time as the last slice of plantations, in 2001. After planting, it was necessary to install 22kms of drip to water our precious olive trees, and protect tree trunks from the sharp teeth of rabbits with chicken wire.
A family adventure
We watched the trees grow along with the girls, first they were much bigger than the olive trees, but the latter quickly overtook the girls and grew at great speed ! so fast and good that we had a first production in 2005 which allowed us to start marketing our oil under the name of Mas Sénéguier.
