The artisanal cured meat production of Arnad Le Vieux began in the tiny town of Arnad, in 1998. This mountain town benefits from an excellent microclimate ideal for curing meat and is rich in aromatic herbs used for seasoning, like rosemary, sage and bay which grow in the wild there.
Through the years, Arnad Le Vieux mastered the art of making the traditional cured meat specialities of the Val D’Aosta region and in 2011 they partnered with another producer of high quality ham near Milano to create a selection of products following nearly forgotten old recipes. This is how “Quelli del CUORE D”ARNAD” was born. This range delivers the best of both companies and includes products like: the Arnàcotto, a high quality ham with a ‘heart’ of Lardo d’Arnad, the Smoked Lard and the Lard d’Arnad Shank.
Valleè d’Aoste Lard d’Arnad PDO is the king of Val d’Aosta’s cured meats. Soft and tasty, the lard brings with it all the aromas of mountain herbs and spices used during seasoning.
Arnad Le Vieux, in addition to lard, offers in its assortment also seasoned products typical of the regional tradition.
Thanks to the partnership with a company located north of Milan, within our production line you can also find High-Quality Cooked Ham.
Valle d’Aosta is marked by green pastures and forests, snow-capped peaks, and breathtaking views. This land has a very ancient and precious gastronomic tradition of which the Lard d’Arnad P.D.O. is one of the main protagonists.
Arnad is a small town near Aosta, located in a plain at 340 meters above sea level. Rich in history, with one of the most characteristic foods, wine, and natural heritage of the region.
