Piment d'Espelette Kultur Piment à Cambo-les-Bains Pays basque

Ezpeletako biperra

Espelette pepper is also grown in Cambo!

Several producers are present in our beautiful commune, so it’s not uncommon to stroll past pepper fields as you drive through town.

Among them is Kultur Piment, a farm located in the heart of Cambo-les-Bains, at the foot of the Bergerie hill.

Jean-Baptiste took over his father’s farm, Lurmintoën borda, and continued his work as a cow breeder and milk producer. It was in 2011 that he and his partner Mélanie decided to put an end to this farming activity and turn to vegetable production, Espelette chilli peppers.

Owners of 9 hectares of fields around their farm, they devote 3 of them to growing Piment d’Espelette PDO. By cultivating only part of their fields, they are able to let the soil on the other plots rest and alternate cultivation zones every 3 years.

Transmission, sharing and respect for the countryside are the fundamental values of this family-run business. That’s why they’ll be delighted to welcome you to their farm and show you how they work.

Reservations for the Workshops can be made at the Cambo-les-Bains Tourist Office on +33 (0)5 59 29 70 25 or info@cambolesbains.com
