Our story begins in 1975...

Once upon a time, there were 3 Pigs

...and those pigs were crazy about flavor! Les Trois Petits Cochons first started out as a small deli specializing in charcuterie in Greenwich Village, NYC. Founded by two French chefs who met in Africa while gallivanting across the globe, they decided to open in the bohemian Village and with the help of an American backer - the third piggy - the shop was born.




It was a time when French home cooking was still new in America, but with the help of some glowing reviews from food icons like James Beard, Mimi Sheraton and Craig Claiborne, the 3 Pigs’ “back to basics” traditional French charcuterie took off! Soon our charcuterie was winning awards from the Specialty Food Association, so we decided to close up shop to focus on our production and spread the love of pâté across the United States.



To this day, Three Little Pigs still serves up the same great tasting pâtés, mousses, saucissons, charcuterie and French delicacies made in small batches at thousands of retailers nationwide.
