Baronnies linden (also known as “Carpentras Linden”) is very popular among phytotherapy and alternative medicine followers. It remains one of our major products. The producers are mainly based in Drôme Provençale region and have worked with us for a long time. The harvest is carried out in July but requires to be planned several months in advance.
Baronnies linden has to deal with competition imposed by other products like linden from Central Europe (especially Poland and Bulgaria) as well as silver linden (Turkey, Central Europe). On the market of single-serving sachets, competition is also hard with Chinese producers. Companies in this sector are rarely challenge themselves to promote a « made in France » product.
Alp’erbo now takes part to a process aimed at revivng the French production of linden, especially in the organic sector. This is an initiative of the Baronnies linden producers union and of the Agribiodrome association. Survey of the available orchards, pruning of the neglected trees in the area of production, training of young people for traditional picking and drying and price valuation for producers are some of the goals of this program that will also involve Baronnies linden buying companies.
