On Mouton’s Valley farm in the Western Cape, South Africa we have been growing the finest quality agathosma betulina (buchu) for a hundred years.
Above: Moutons Valley, where we grow our
Organic Buchu As primary producers we wish to shorten the supply chain without compromising quality. We are now steam distilling to produce our own oil. This exciting new venture means we can supply Buchu oil directly to the global flavour, essential oils, fragrance and natural pharmaceutical industry. Visit our products page find out more and our contacts page if you wish to receive more information about our products. We also produce Buchu soap, Buchu water and dried Buch leaves. Buchu is indigenous to the Cape and is found in abundance in the wild on our farm. Harvesting, however, is done from our almost 40 hectares of cultivated fields.
We pride ourselves in maintaining a harmonious balance with nature. Therefore no pesticide or herbicide spraying is done. Weeding is done by hand and we use only organic fertilizer. The buchu bush is cut annually between December and March when the oils are at an optimum level. Visit thegallery to see some harvesting pictures.
