The French Farm was founded in 1997 by Gisele Oriot, who is originally from the French region known for its food culture and wine. After settling down in Houston, she realized something was missing. She realized that if she wanted the jams, mustards, oils, and cutlery that she missed, she was going to have to bring them to Houston herself. So, what started as a hobby, bringing in gourmet products for herself and her friends, turned into a business and The French Farm was born. Since its launch, Les Confitures à l’Ancienne has stayed true to the old fashioned approach in preparing their delicious jams. The result is a product that has a smoothness of texture and purity of taste that is unrivaled. In preparing their range of jams, Les Confitures sources fruits from all over the world, while ensuring that all fruits are picked at the peak of their ripeness for maximum flavor and taste.
