Goat-farms provide the famous Maconnais AOC goat cheese made from unpasteurised milk. Snail farms sell tasty gourmet dishes based on their production. The area offers a myriad of local products : they are the symbols of culinary art : chocolate (La Clayette), honey, oil (Iguerande), products based on locally-grown fruit.
