Bigorre Noir ham
As its name suggests, the Bigorre Noir pig is black from snout to tail and leads a free-range life in the far reaches of Hautes Pyrénées and Gers.
Lovingly pampered by around forty breeders, these pigs happily roam around the meadows and snuffle their way through the undergrowth, eating acorns and locally grown cereals. Thanks to their healthy life, their juicy flesh has a sublime flavour and an exquisite melt-in-the-mouth texture… this ancient and pure local breed of pig, which is found only in Midi-Pyrénées, has earned high praise.
Bigorre Noir ham has held a Certification de Conformité Produit (CCP, awarded only to top-quality produce), since 2000.
