L’Huilerie Richard is a family business of millers and peddlers, passed down from father to son for 5 generations now. L’Huilerie Richard was founded in 1885, in Mollans-sur-Ouvèze in Drôme. My great-grandfather, Henry Richard, made his own olive oil in his mill and then, with the help of his cart and his mule, he went to sell his olive oil, olive and soap production from farm to farm by peddling.
Today, the traditions of peddling, local olive oil production and blended olive oils are kept alive in my beautiful French department of Drôme. In the north, in Montoison, we produce walnut oil, hazelnut oil and rapeseed oil. In the south, in Nyons, we produce PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) Nyons olive oil. Don't hesitate to stop by our mills for a visit.
