Where climates meet
Aveyron, formerly the Rouergue, land of wide-open spaces, diversity, contrast and trade, is the only département in France where three climates intersect providing lush, intricate nature and agriculture, affording rich and varied cuisine.
A continental influence comes from the high plateaux of the Aubrac and Carladez, bringing with it cattle rearing traditions (Aubrac beef, cheese, etc.), and pork butchery meats.
The oceanic influence comes via the plains of Southwest France and the Lot Valley, lands of market gardening, cereal crops, poultry and foie gras.
And the Mediterranean influence reminds us that Languedoc is close by, with olive oil, lots of vegetables, sheep farming and so on.
Our region is an endless playground!!!
