Farm butter

Purchased this Tuesday at the farmer’s market in Orthez:  organic butter from the farm Leit de Brunas.  In Béarnais, the name means “milk from the Brunes”, which is fitting for this family-run farm located south of Pau that raises the Brunes des Alps breed of dairy cows.  In addition to butter, their tiny stand in the market hall sells fresh milk, cow’s milk cheeses (their 16 month cow’s milk tomme is excellent) and riz au lait, a traditional rice pudding. And the little molded butters are too adorable!
