The French Farm was founded in 1997 by Gisele Oriot, who is originally from the French city of Lyon known for its food culture and wine. After settling down in Houston, she realized something was missing. She longed for the high-quality gourmet food products and kitchen accessories that she was surrounded by back home. 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 friends, turned into a business and The French Farm was born.
With The French Farm, she has searched all over Europe to bring the finest imported gourmet foods & kitchen accessories. Our products are carefully crafted by small, family owned businesses and are made using traditional recipes and techniques, which are handed down from one generation to the next. These products contain the highest quality ingredients and materials, have exquisite taste, and are packaged beautifully.
Our goal is to bring the taste and feel of Europe into your home for everyone to enjoy. Here, you can fill your kitchen and pantry with beautiful products from France, Spain, Italy, and Portugal with brands like Edmond Fallot, L’Epicurien, Jean Dubost, Sal de Ibiza, & many more. We encourage our customers to search our collection and be transported to another place and time, where food was meant to be savored and enjoyed. We hope our products liven your taste buds, and you feel that Europe’s finest are just a few steps away.
