Hi We are moving near Montcuq at the end of the month and wondered if there are any particular supermarkets or markets that have organic produce? I know its is called Biologique or Bio but on previous visits have not seen a great choice. I also wondered if there are any farms you can buy meat from directly? We currently grow our own veg in the uk but are renting intially so will try to grow a few things in pots for the time being. Thanks in advance for any help!
Please sign our on-line petition asking President Obama to roll back the punitive duty levied by the Bush Administration on Roquefort cheese. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/support-roquefort-cheese The 300% punitive duty is a spiteful parting shot from the outgoing Bush Administration, still mad that France didn't follow them into the disastrous war in Iraq. It's an unfair tariff that only turns roquefort into the caviar of cheeses, unaffordable by any Americans except the rich. The tariff hurts the livelihoods of my French neighbors who had nothing to do with the EU trade dispute that triggered this tit-for-tat action (the EU's refuses to accept American beef imports because of hormones used in American cattle). We hope to persuade President Obama to revoke the Bush action as a goodwill gesture to France before he visits Strasbourg in late March for a NATO meeting. Let your voice be heard. Please sign the petition & pass it on! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/support-roquefort-cheese Thanks!

We are visiting Cauterets next week for a holiday, can anyone let me know how far away from Cauterets is the nearest decently sized supermarket. I understand there is a smallish supermarket in the resort, but I am guessing it will probably be a bit pricey!! Also, hows the snow down there, we havn't had any in Brittany!! Thank you LisaD
