Jean-François and Marie Helene Nouqueret keep 160 Basco Béarnaise sheep above Lescun, a tiny village 900ms up in the Pyrenees. Between December and June he makes about 30 wheels of cheese a week, heating the milk over a simple gas burner in the summer (see the photos - also the one of their 15 Montbeliard cows kept to make a fromage mixte), when they move the sheep up to the lush pastures of the Cirque de Lescun. Over the winter they work from a small dairy in the centre of the town. His octogenarian father still looks after the land and his mother sells the cheese from their one point of sale - apart from us - her front door. We are privileged to receive a couple of small deliveries a year from Jean-François and Marie Helene
Unpateurised sheep's milk from Lescun, Béarn.
