In 1976, in compliance with the Nature & Progress charter, Jean MAISON set up an agricultural structure, specialized in the gathering of wild plants and production in Saint-Augustin in the Limousin.
In 1981, the creation of the Economic Interest Group ‘Les Tisaniers’ brought together organic producers from all over France. It offers the public a complete range of plants.
2003 was the year of the start-up of the SAS ‘Le Comptoir d’herboristerie’.
Today the company is organized into a network of producers/gatherers, which enables us to offer a wide range of plants from different regions in France and from around the world. The SAS has also organized a brokerage and trading structure.
Le Comptoir d'Herboristerie continues the tradition of producers/gatherers. At the heart of our activities are respect for plants, ecosystems, and search for top quality within the framework of agrobiology and agro-environmental certifications.
Based in Saint-Augustine in the middle of the Massif des Monédières (Corrèze), we are perfectly integrated into the natural environment. This region of Limousin is characterized by the quality of the landscapes (forests, grasslands, moorlands and peat bogs) and of the ecosystems which present a rich diversity of flora. That is the reason why we maintain and develop local production and gathering activities. We can handle the whole production process for fresh or dried medicinal plants as we are equipped to cut, grind and sift them. We also do subcontracting, packaging, production of brands and of instant beverages.
