Several farmers share the area described above. You will find Gascon pork in farms, directly from producers or even in pork butcher’s and at markets.
Rustic, calm and brave, Gascon pork is a good sort! A traditional, ancient breed, this black pig spans the northern lands of Landes, Gironde and the Basque Country, as well as the Midi-Pyrénées. Interestingly, this is the region where the Bigorre Black Pork commercial brand was created. A PDO application helped this fresh meat gain ground, just like it did for ham! You will certainly enjoy its tenderness and slightly marbled flavour.
