Processing takes place in our laboratory, using local, family recipes. We have chosen direct sales as our only means of marketing, in order to keep in touch with our customers.
We welcome you to the farm every day of the year from 9am to 12.30pm and from 2pm to midnight. Weekends and public holidays by appointment. Tours and tastings for groups by prior arrangement.

25km north of Sarlat between Les Eyzies and Lascaux, Saint Léon sur Vézère lies, as its name suggests, in a bend in the Vézère river.
Classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France, the village has the charming medieval heritage of the Périgord Noir.
A maze of couredoux (narrow streets), white stone houses with warm stone roofs and monuments which give it character.
-Saint Léonce Roman church from the 12th century, listed as an historic monument which hosts concerts for the Périgord Noir Music Festival in summer
-the 16th century Clérans Château in a park planted with hundred year old trees
-the Manoir de la Salle built in the 14th century
-the 16th century expiatory chapel with its 13th century recesses
The town also has three prehistoric deposits, Sous le Roc, le Moustier and la Rochette.
Next to the fire or on the terrace, come taste the authentic cuisine of the Périgord. For three generations, the same family has been offering its speciality dish: a generous portion of preserved duck, Sarlat-style potatoes with bolet mushrooms and salad with walnut oil. A discovery you won't want to miss! Very affordable prices and a pleasant atmosphere.
From the Big Bang to the appearance of the dinosaurs and on to the first humans, Le Conquil explores the evolution of life in a fun, simple way. Come travel through the eras to discover the first land lizards such as Edaphosaurus, and encounter creatures from the Jurrasic such as T-Rex, Triceratops and many others. Your tour continues along the Vézère through authentic rock shelters that were occupied by prehistoric man. The bonus: Treetop adventure circuits for the whole family
Between Les Eyzies and Montignac, the cliff of the Roque Saint-Christophe rises steeply above the Vézère River. This kilometre-long, 80-metre-high limestone cliff has been sculpted with under-rock shelters and long aerial terraces with impressive overhangs, occupied by man in prehistoric times (55,000 years ago),then modified to become a fort and a city in the Middle Ages, and inhabited until the early Renaissance.
Few troglodytic sites can rival the Roque Saint-Christophe in terms of age and surface area. Discover the lives and dwellings of our ancestors, the 15th century city and a collection of medieval lifting machines. Highlights of the visit: the arrival on the Grande Terrasse, offering an exceptional view of the Vézère valley, and prehistory workshops open to all (painting, fire lighting, flint knapping...).
Located in a loop in the Vézère, north of Eyzies, the troglodyte village of Madeleine is one of the best examples of the long tradition of human occupation in this area of Périgord Noir.
The prehistoric deposit is found at the foot of the cliff. It has particular stone and bone tools and many works of art which have enabled the definition of a new period in the evolution of Cro-Magnon, which it has given its name to, the Magdalenian culture.
Certainly from the 8th century, a population settled in what was then the height of comfort and safety. The ruins of a fairly large fortified castle illustrate the defensive aspects of the site.
The inhabitants abandoned the site some years later with the growing popularity of the gas engine and the development of the railway and then returned, following age-old tradition.
L'élevage d'oies des granges is a family farm located in Tursac, Vézère valley in Périgord noir.
All the geese raised and force-fed on the farm are canned on site and sold exclusively in our shop or sent by us via our online shop.
We do not supply any artisan canner, local market or other retailers with fresh or canned products.
Production of cereals and corn. Breeding of goslings. Force-feeding of geese. Canning workshop on the farm.
In the countryside, between Auriac and Montignac, in a large verdant park crossed by the Laurence river, this former 17th century mill still has its impressive mill wheel. It has been fully converted into an exclusive hotel with 17 air conditioned rooms, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sauna. Marie Claude welcomes you to this beautiful setting. Serge will tempt your taste buds with his generous, refined traditional cuisine featuring local products and seafood.
A gourmet cuisine combining local and foreign flavours awaits you in our shady garden around the swimming pool or in one of our two air-conditioned dining rooms. Group meals. Private receptions. Restaurant ideally located in Thonac, only a few kilometres from the famous Lascaux cave, La Roque Saint-Christophe and Le Château de Losse. Guide du Routard / Petit Futé. Maître Restaurateur since 2010.
The Micoque archaeological deposit is the oldest site in the Vézère Valley and a fundamental element in our understanding of the beginning of the Paleolithic.
Its stratigraphy is nearly 10 m / 32 ft high and covers more than 300,000 years of chronology.
The site is a listed historic monument.
Its reference stratigraphy shows evidence of a human presence here dating from approximately 50,000 BC.
This site is famous for its Neanderthal graves, and engraved and sculpted stones representing the most ancient examples of prehistoric art — towards 30,000 BC — have also been uncovered here.
The Templar village of Sergeac along the left bank of the Vézère River in the Dordogne, the prehistoric site of Castel-Merle includes ten remarkable rock shelters which were occupied by Neanderthal 85,000 years ago and Cro-Magnon 35,000 years ago. This concentration of deposits, located halfway between the Lascaux caves and Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, is one of the most largest in the world. In 2012, the site of Castel-Merle came into the spotlight when American researchers announced that they were able to precisely date an engraved stone block to 37,000 years before the present day. This means that Castel-Merle is home to one of the oldest forms of cave art in Europe and perhaps even the world. After touring the shelters, continue your trip through time to become the hero of Castel-Merle: experiment with a propulsor or reserve a painting or jewellery workshop. Watch as flintstones...
Free range goose breeding farm, force-feeding, canning, beekeeping, truffle farm, organic cereals, sheep, meats.
A bucolic setting where you can find the best of the best.
5 Km from Montignac Lascaux on D 706. The Medieval stronghold towers above the river Vézère. Within its curtain walls and deep moat a Renaissance hall was built in 1576. It is accessed by a monumental gatehouse where an inscription proclaims, in the line of 16th century thought, « Man does as he may, Fate as she wills ».
Inside the Renaissance hall a fine decor and exceptional period furniture bear witness to the grand lifestyle of Jean II de Losse, soldier and courtier of all the sons of Catherine de Medicis, the last Valois kings. The gardens within the walls or terraced over the river with plantations following the 16th century lay out, offer an inspired and charming wandering with unspoiled views over the virgilian coutryside.
