 Société des Ocres de France's factory is situated in the heart of the town of Apt and dates from 1901. The original factory building has been carefully preserved, although the machinery has been modernized. It is here in the factory that the processing of the ochre is completed. After a period of drying out, the ochre is transported to the factory and off-loaded into special, deep storage compartments. The ochre is baked at very high temperatures, pulverized and packed into bags.

The quarry is fascinating and impressive, but visits are forbidden because of security. Near from the quarry, you can visit "mines de Bruoux" in Gargas , which explain you how were extracted ocher few years ago.

Ochre, the “treasure of Provence” cannot be used in its natural state. Even if you want to keep the usual yellow colouring, it must first be processed. To obtain different colours, the processing is longer and more complex.
