Agour's Ossau-Iraty is a pasteurized uncooked pressed AOP cheese with a natural & edible rind. It is the most reknowned sheep milk AOP label. Agour opts for the milk of 2 local sheep breeds out of the 3 allowed for the OI production, which graze in Ossau & Iraty, two Basque valleys where the cheese is produced. Agour is the last independant family dairy in the Basque country as well as the 2nd largest producer of Ossau Iraty. Agour means "welcome" in Basque language. They are the last producers working without any conservatives and ripenning cheeses on wooden boards.
