In two words Huîtres Lagarre
When the first men appeared on earth and discovered the sea, oysters already existed. They tasted them and it was only 5000 years before Christ that the Cro-Magnon men became oyster farmers. Philippe Lagarre has been an oyster farmer in Marennes-Oléron for 3 generations. Thanks to a rigorous method passed down from father to son, he raises with passion oysters of superior quality: the Huître Spéciale Lagarre (registered trademark), as well as the Huître Fine Lagarre.
For over a century Oyster farmers from father to son
Philippe Lagarre is an oyster farmer, breeder, refiner, producer of oysters and spat. It was in the last century that Paul Lagarre started the activity, and put in place this method of breeding which will allow the elaboration of the Lagarre Special Oyster, renowned for its unique taste.
The home of the imperial shrimp The Marennes-Oleron basin
The oysters are produced in Bourcefranc-Le-Chapus in the Marennes-Oléron basin. The farm includes a marsh of 4.5 hectares and more than 21 hectares of sea pens, to perfect an oyster of character. The imperial shrimp is also found here. Born in Charente-Maritime and bred in our marshes, it is recognisable by its tigerish colouring, slightly bluish at the ends. It is characterised by a firm and subtle flesh, a unique taste without any post-harvest treatment, and is sold from August to October.
