The selection of the best ingredients

Upstream of this production respectful of artisanal techniques, the selection of raw materials is just as rigorous, starting with that of milk. Flagship ingredient of La Fermière, it is French 100%, and collected from small dairy farms (35 cows on average).

And because the best milk deserves only the best ingredients, from the most local (Camargue rice, sugar and French free-range eggs, etc.) to the most exotic (Pure Origins and Cocoa-Trace chocolates, vanilla from Madagascar, Alfonso mangoes and Kesar from India…), La Fermière takes great care in sourcing its ingredients and producers.
