MAP OF THE RANGE

The range: zone where the ewe’s milk traditionally comes from

For centuries, the production of ewe’s milk for the production of Roquefort cheese was limited to the neighbouring causses. It was later extended to the rest of the Rouergue region and to the neighbouring regions of Lozère, Gard, Hérault, Tarn and Tarn-et-Garonne, Aude and even to the Pyrenees and Corsica.

For the past twenty years, only milk produced in the Roquefort region has been used for the production of Roquefort cheese.

PRODUCTION
