- Local producer
Located in the village of Izier (Ardennes), the Orzo dairy farm has been raising chamois alpine goats for 25 years, fed with hay from the nearby meadows.
The raw milk, soft, creamy, with subtle floral notes, is then used to make superb cheese. The secret? A traditional recipe, a love of giving ingredients time to develop their full flavours and a modern workshop.

A paradise for foodies
