Our story

A pot of family spirit, Two pots of tradition, Three pots of gluttony


Gluttony from father to daughters

In 1952, La Fermière was born in Provence from the desire to offer quality products and to democratize the consumption of yogurts.

50 years later, Jean-Jacques Tarpinian, Marseille entrepreneur and lover of good things, decides to take up the torch the day he learns that his favorite brand of yogurts is for sale. With the desire to continue to develop the company and the potential he sees in it, he put all his passion into the adventure, which became a family affair.

From the first day he placed the La Fermière range of yogurts on the family kitchen table as an advertisement, until today when his two daughters, to whom he passed on his passion, joined the company. , the Tarpinians are firmly convinced that know-how, quality and generosity are the keys to success.

The first dairy desserts for babies.
Developed with paediatricians, doctors and nutritionists. La Fermière was able to identify the needs of babies very early on, which allowed her to stand out!
La Fermière full pot quality.
Always on the lookout for new flavors, La Fermière is launching a yoghurt in stoneware pots with two flavors: plain and vanilla. The innovation comes mainly from the implementation of a unique and specific process which allows the vanilla pods to be directly infused into milk and cream.

Currently, this yogurt is still the reference in terms of quality on the market.
Following its takeover in 2002 by the Tarpinian family,
La Fermière has gone from a small family business to an SME and continues to design quality dairy products, respecting traditional methods and has given itself the mission of perpetuating this know-how by being a company committed to taste.
La Fermière moved into new premises in Aubagne, more modern and more spacious.
This allows it to triple its production capacity to meet the growing demands of French and foreign markets and out-of-home consumption.
Creation of a new, more modern image for La Fermière.
Improved recipes and overhaul of the “Mont Plaisir” range, which becomes pleasure moments.
La Fermière buys the GAP cooperative dairy to secure its milk supply.

Before 2015 La Fermière is a good product. A brand that lives only through the blue vanilla sandstone pot.

2016 La Fermière is a pretty brand. A new logo, new packaging that shows that we are much more than a blue sandstone pot. We are a small maker, passionate, with "artisanal" manufacturing methods.

Let's talk pot, let's talk well.

A strong identity. La Fermière is reworking its packaging and its logo. The blue color of our emblematic blue sandstone pot becomes the spokesperson for our brand.

To find us now it's easy, just follow the blue line

The packs change, but not the recipes or the delicacies!

70 years of indulgence

The iconic pot is making a comeback!

And good times ahead
