Autumn in Provence- A Visit to the Fig Farm

IMG_8130.jpg

September in Provence is glorious.  I recently heard someone say that autumn in Provence is what springtime is to Paris and I wholeheartedly agree.  The crowds are gone but the temperate beauty remains.  I will be sharing some of my favorite moments from travel with my 2018 group in the coming weeks.  I hope you will stay tuned and enjoy!

Welcome to the fig farm.

Meet Frances who is a passionate fig farmer.

He welcomed us with open arms to his farm.  Not only does Frances grow many varieties of figs here, his wife creates flavor-packed jams and condiments on sale in their tasting room. Frances is truly happy when visitors have tasted every last one of her concoction!

Look at this beauty, so ripe it’s falling off the tree. Locals pull up and buy fresh figs by the flat.

Frances was eager for us to taste his figs. So many figs!

Frances is definitely a fig expert.  Both of his children live in the United States; he confessed that when he flies over the pond for a visit, figs are always on his mind.  He enjoys visiting fig farms all over the US, learning about new varieties and adding them to his orchard collection.

There is nothing technical about drying figs, just lay them out on a rack and let the sun do the work.

The farm was a quaint location to enjoy a picnic of market goodies curated from the Saint Remy morning market.

Definitely a great way to spend a few hours!
