WHO ARE WE?
Maison Labarbe is first and foremost the meeting of good things’ lovers. We wanted authenticity, quality and traditional know-how, so we gathered around Serge Labarbe, breeder in Bazas, to found a farm that would meet all our expectations.
Hearty eaters, gourmets and refined palates, we want to transmit our love for this high-quality and traditional meat. Remained confidential until then, the Bazadaise meat has always made the happiness of the enlightened people of our beautiful region. By creating Maison Labarbe, we wanted to offer you the opportunity to have a gourmet and typically bazadais time wherever you are.
« My cows live happily in a natural environment, eat meadow grass, ivy, bramble shoots, nettle heads and during winter I feed them with hay, taken from my natural meadows which have never known pesticides or chemical fertilizers. »
– Serge Labarbe
OUR BREEDER, OUR PRIDE. OUR ANIMALS, OUR LOVE
Serge Labarbe, whose father was a farmer, had left the family estate to work in a carpentry shop. But no one can leave the fresh air and the green grass of Bazas that easily… Serge returned to the farm and keeps perpetuating, with us, the tradition of breeding one of the most noble cattle breeds: the Bazadaise breed, also called «the Grise of Bazas».
Our Bazadaise beasts are born and grow in Bazas and are led to the slaughterhouse of Bazas, a few kilometers from the farm. Thus, we can guarantee the traceability of our meat in the purest peasant tradition of our terroir, and this, for more than 750 years.
