The dairy farm, or malbana, as the local residents like to say, is the showcase of the Domaine, selling products produced at arcenciel’s farms.
All products are natural, of farm and craft production, without preservatives or additives. The entire process is completed on site at the Domaine de Taanayel.
With the help of the Jesuit fathers, in 1958 the dairy farm began to commercially produce dairy products. The actual brand “La Laiterie du Couvent de Taanayel” was created and put on the market in 1994.
