In the name of the Father | The Slow Food Presidium for Basque Pyrenees mountain cheeses

In the mountains of Irati (just outside of Biarritz), in the French Basque Country, transhumance (the seasonal migration of livestock) is an ancestral tradition. In late spring, in the month of June, the flocks would leave the valley floor and be moved up to the mountains until September, to collectively managed pastures where their milk would be processed in the mountain huts known as etxola or cayolar in Basque. Today, this tradition is at risk. Only a few dozen herders still practice transhumance, most of whom do not have their own land. Their numbers fall every season.
