La grande veyssière - Neuvic

The estate, located at Neuvic sur l'Isle in Dordogne, spans 20 hectares bordered by two rivers : Isle and Vern. It is in this area that Caviar de Neuvic has chosen to build a fish farm dedicated to the breeding of sturgeons to produce his famous caviar. With comments loaded with humor and unusual anecdotes, the manager will explain how modern farming methods respect fish and nature. It will reveal the passion that drives us when we care for and develop sturgeon caviar. You would provide food for fish and can, with equipment provided, stroking big sturgeon. The following tasting will convince you that farmed caviar has become, with experience, better and healthier than wild caviar now disappeared. And even if it remains a luxury product, you can with the small packages and the best rates in the area, start with caviar for your pleasure to savor or offer.

Good visit
The fish farm tour was interesting and I learned some about sturgeon and hydroponics. Company's emphasis on ecology was refreshing. Guide was very friendly for the English language tour, which turned out to mean a private tour for the two of us. There were some options included in the tour that didn't interest us, but might others, such as putting on hip boots to get into a tourist (not production) fish pool to hold a sturgeon or feeding a goat. Definitely a tour that is better in nice weather but they are equipped with umbrellas. The video and tasting were informative and yes, we bought some of their products although there was no pressure to do so. Fun stop that I am glad we made.

Unforgettable experience
When we arrived at the fish farm we were welcomed by Yoan, a very friendly guide explained a lot of interesting details about sturgeon rearing. One highlight was definitely the challenge to enter the basin with the (of course male) sturgeons and touch them by hand. To do so we were equipped with a water prove rubber suit. The Kaviar tasting that followed was not so impressive for me. But even though I am Not and probably never will be a connaisseur, I recoment that tour to everyone.
