A day in the life of Pierre-Yves

How do you produce quality milk? What is life on the farm like? Follow your guide...

One of the secrets behind the flavour of Paysan Breton products lies in the quality of the milk provided by cooperative members.

Our farmers know better than anyone that the cows' welfare is essential for producing good milk, from the feed they eat to the milking process and also their physical comfort.

Pierre-Yves gives all his cows names. He spends time getting to know them, watching them grow and identifying what's good for each of them. Because whatever's good for the cows is also good for the quality of the milk.
