Details: Agour, a name that means "hello" in the Basque language, represents a warm greeting to the world of exceptional cheese. Located in the picturesque town of Hélette, in the Baja Navarra province of the French Basque Country, Agour's legacy began with its founder, Jean Etchelecu, a champion of mountain agriculture. Today, his son Peio carries on this tradition.

Agour specializes in producing top-tier cheese, including sheep, cow, and goat's milk varieties. However, their crowning glory is the production of the coveted sheep cheese, D.O. Ossau-Iraty. This cheese has garnered numerous global awards, earning the title of "Best Cheese in the World" at the World Cheese Awards in 2006 and 2011. It also secured the second place in the "Champion of the Champions" competition in 2016, held in San Sebastián.

In 2018, Agour's cheese received a Gold Medal at the Paris Agricultural Fair and took second place at the World Cheese Awards. The D.O. Ossau-Iraty designation sets these cheeses apart, as they are meticulously crafted using pasteurized sheep's milk, capturing the essence of the Basque tradition.
