Heir to a family passion, the adventure Chêne Vert originated in Périgord Vert more than 40 years ago. The love of animals, farm, good products and the region is a passion from father to son for 3 generations.

It all started with the grandmother, Marie Desport, who was a dairy farmer on the current farm, in Saint Front sur Nizonne (24) south of Nontron. His son, François, began working with his wife Jeanine at a very young age. By attraction for smaller, but more capricious, horned cattle, in the '65s they passed the goat cow farm. Driven by their passion for goats, innovation and a strong desire to value their work, they began to diversify into cheese making.

At the time goat cheese was a little known product. The work was done with the family and from an early age Pierre put his hand in the dough. Pierre took over at the age of 22 the family cheese dairy. Graduated from a dairy school and enamored by production and innovation, he will develop Chêne Vert until he becomes the specialist in sweet and fresh artisanal goat cheese.
