Goats have been reared in our region since the Neolithic age. Goat and chevon farming has played an important role in the regional economy since the Middle Ages. The Poitou-Charentes is France’s leading chevon-producing region with more than 400,000 births and 270,000 goats for approximately 30% of the national herd.
In 2003, industry operators drew up ‘signé Poitou-Charentes’ specifications, guaranteeing the origin of these chevon (born, reared and slaughtered in Poitou-Charentes), reared on non-GMO milk, with breeding conditions that respect the well-being of the animal, and so on.
From February to Easter and at the end of the year, discover the flavours of chevon meat, a lean, juicy and tender meat.
This quality process represents around 300 breeders in the region.
