Ermeton-sur-Biert is a village in the Walloon province of Namur, Belgium, which since 1977 has been a subdivision of the municipality of Mettet.
There is a 14th-century castle in the village, which since 1936 has been in use as Ermeton Abbey and in 1973 was designated a heritage site.
The lordship of Ermeton was created in the early 14th century by John I, Marquis of Namur. The last heir to the lordship, Henry de Villermont, died in combat in 1914.
In 1903 Belgium's first union of farming women was founded at Ermeton-sur-Biert, leading to the establishment of the Cercle de Fermières at Namur in 1909.Marie de Villermont
