The French Pig (from salt to ham)

Julian

Have I told you about Julian?

Pig breeder, Julian Guenard. Lasse

Pig breeder, Julian Guenard. Lasse

He's the younger M. Guenard. We met his father, Jean Guenard on our first visit to Lasse. Their breeding facility maintains 500 sows which produce the piglets for the premium pork of the area, Porc Manex. It is touted on the menus of France's finest restaurants.

He was quite helpful and very willing to explain the whys and wherefores of their facility. He was also generous about sharing his knowledge of the new mandates regarding animal welfare. He looks forward to the changes. 

Julian was very patient with us. I asked a lot him a lot of silly questions. He also helped us sort out some flaws in our thinking about this project.

I promise I'll talk to him more on camera on my next trip.
