Henry Paschetta Oil Mill
Since 1922, our mill extracts a virgin olive oil, a real fruit juice, only by mechanical means for the greatest pleasure of the amateurs of olive oil.
The picking of the olives is done manually thanks to manual and pneumatic combs to preserve the quality of the olives. Then we proceed to crush the fruit with a simple mechanical technique without adding chemicals or changing the temperature.
At the end of this manipulation, we obtain an extra virgin olive oil with a free acidity of less than 0,8%.
Our mill produces local extra virgin olive oil. Our olive oil is peppery with a green taste specific to the variety of aglandau olives (90%).
Nearly 400 olive growers bring their olives to the mill to provide you with:
- Green fruity olive oil
- Local olive oil
- Olive oil from Italy
- Olive oil from Umbria
- Olive oil with basil
All our products are available at the boutique and on the online boutique: olive oil, homemade products, Marseille soaps, etc.
Olive oil on sale at the tourist office of Serres, Orpierre, Sisteron and Laragne.
