Black pig of Bigorre (le noir de Bigorre)

The bigorre black pig is a breed that almost disappeared. who was saved

For the pleasure of our taste buds; it is a tasty meat, very tender and marbled.


The calf raised under the mother

This calf is raised in our farms, outdoors and head at will from his mother’s milk and receives all the attention of the breeder. This is what gives you meat of exceptional quality. A red label (Label Rouge) rewards this quality. Did you know that this is the first Red Label in the meat sector ?

The carrot of Asté (La carotte d'Asté)

It is the sandy land of this village that has made it a hotbed of carrot culture. In June, come celebrate this carrot of a beautiful bright orange in the charming village of Asté enjoying a stew or a plate of Vichy carrots.

The pie

Blueberries, chocolate or simply nature, the pie is part of these simple pleasures that we appreciate even better in the countryside ! A very simple recipe, close to cakes, which owes its quality to the quality of its ingredients. So, do you prefer the Baronnies, Montgaillard or Asté ?

The Gâteau à la broche (cake on the spit)

“Carved” over a wood fire, the spit cake is as delicious as it is long to make … The opportunity to sit by the fire and chat a few hours ! Like the pie, the imposing spit cake is made up of simple and healthy ingredients that delight young and old alike !

And plenty of other sweet treats

Candies and chocolates at our chocolate artisans…
