Haranea is located in Itxassou, one of the 10 villages around Espelette that are allowed to grow the Espelette Pepper.
Gilles Billaud and his associate Christian Aguerre, own a small farm of 22.25 acres.
The outcome is great since their Espelette pepper is organic and loved by connoisseurs.
Haranea has been awarded several gold medals at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris (the annual agricultural show in Paris) in 2005, 2006 and 2012 (best selection among 51 Espelette pepper powders).
They also received the award of Excellence by the French Minister of Agriculture in 2008.
