Description

In our beautiful region of Combrailles on a plateau overlooking the Sioule, the village of Blot l'Eglise is alive and welcoming many craftsmen. Our oil mill is the last alive in our district, which at one time numbered up to 12! The horse driven grinder was replaced by a small electric motor in 1932. We manufacture virgin oils from walnuts, hazelnuts, rapeseed, sesame, pistachio, camelina, peanut, carnation, pumpkin seed, sunflower and almond. We also manufacture walnut wine, walnut and almond cakes and quality pasta, drawn with a bronze mold and made from durum wheat semolina from organic farming. Since July 2020 we we roast the coffee from Ethiopia, Rwanda, Peru, Colombia. You will also find, in our workshop-boutique, regional products from fellow craftsmen and producers of Auvergne.
Farmers' market on May 1 and August 15, and Christmas market at the end of December. Welcome.
