The mill

Tucked away by the river Morges at the foot of the Jura hills, the mill lies at the heart of the Swiss canton of Vaud. It is one of the few artisan mills and oil producers still operating.

 

The first mention of the mill was recorded in 1228 : the sons of Pierre de Sévery confirmed the donation of over 600 kilos of wheat to the Abbey of Lac-de-Joux, the knight’s annual contribution to the needs of the abbey.

 

Built in 1845, the current mill has belonged to the Bovey family for 6 generations. The first record of a miller called Bovey at the mill dates from 1810. The current owner, Jean-Luc Bovey, took over in 2002.


Our specialty : cold pressing

The nuts are fed into a metal funnel where it is crushed by an endless screw. This forces the oil through a fine mesh, where the dry matter (the “ cake ”) is retained while the high-quality oil is filtered through muslins before bottling.
