Les Fins Gourmets, duck breeders in Quercy
“Farmers and breeders on the Causses of Quercy, we joined forces in 1990 to create our Les Fins Gourmets brand. Concerned about animal welfare, we raise ducks in the wild where they benefit from shady meadows. All the “Fins Gourmets” duck-based products are made by us. Very attached to our region, our whole team works in the respect of the methods and the traditional recipes resulting from the soil of Quercy”.
