The story of La Cour d’Orgères began in 1973 when farmers Margareth and Pierre-Jan Indekeu from Orgères in the East of Brittany started making goat’s cheese. It was when they were making preserves for their family and friends in 1976 that they realised that it had become a success. In 1986, they decided to stop making goat’s cheese and concentrate fully on producing and selling jams : they went from being farmers to being artisans.
Their family secret : creating artisanal jams made traditionally in small quantities using a red copper cauldron without a lid to allow better evaporation. Their jams have been awarded a range of prizes including French Master Jam Maker and “Officier de bouche” of The Brotherhood of the Pot of Gold.
