Le Vieux Bourg - Ploeuc sur Lie - Britain - France
Why we chose them
"60 years of traditional craftsmanship and quality". This is the motto that represents "Le Vieux Bourg" Maison de beurre, founded by Mr. Raoult in the heart of Brittany in 1956. It was first led in 1984 by Choupeaux and subsequently in 1990 by Marcel and Jocelyne Vimard. Since 2013 the direction is headed to Eric de Sonis, young entrepreneur who decided to revive the identity of the butter factory maintaining the chrism of craftsmanship of the predecessors. The company mainly produces Beurre de Baratte, made with milk collected only from herds grazing on the Breton territory, near Ploeuc sur Lie, where the company is located. Only three employees provide every day about 400 kg of butter for which about 85 quintals of milk are needed; every stick of butter is strictly hand packed in a typical wax paper.
