Many residents of this region belong to the Taliouine Saffron Society. This high-quality saffron is produced within about 10,000 square meters of land, comprised of individual fields located between many households. All members of the Taliouine Saffron Society use the same farming methods, which include planting saffron bulbs in piles of three, watering the fields 12 times a year, and using only natural fertilizers such as sheep manure. This community works hard with high standards to harvest this saffron and we are proud to have it on our shelves.
