Route des fermes du plateau du Larzac

Authentic sharing

On the Larzac, artisans and producers invite you into their farms or workshops to share more than just a product, a way of life.

A little background on the Larzac struggle

The history of the plateau is intertwined with the struggle against the extension of the military camp in the 1970s. In solidarity with the farmers involved in this resistance, many activists moved in, rebuilt abandoned farms and relaunched farming and craft activities.
Today, the plateau is still part of this alter-globalist dynamic, expressed through its farms committed to organic or eco-responsible farming.


Farm visits on Larzac

Many farmers open their farm gates for you to discover their trade, their commitments and their ethics. It’s an ideal family outing, and your little ones will love rubbing shoulders with the ewes! End your visit with a tasting of local cheeses, ice creams or yoghurts made from ewe’s milk.
Many farmers also offer direct sales of their produce, including dairy products, meat, honey, saffron, aromatic herbs and beers from the Brasserie du Larzac, giving everyone the opportunity to consume in a short circuit.


Le Larzac artisanal

Aside from these farms, many artisans have set up their workshops in the heart of these preserved Larzac landscapes. Ceramists, leatherworkers, artisans working with wool, wood, glass and many others let you discover their skills. Find an original souvenir to take home.

Some of these products can be found all year round at the Marché Paysan and the Espace des Métiers d’Art in Millau.
