Fromagerie Bouchet has built close relationships with a small number of talented farmhouse producers. All of them are human-scale family farms that respect their environment.
Herds are fed a 100% natural diet based on grass, hay and cereals.
Raw milk - a living food
The floral diversity of the Alps gives our milk an exceptional nutritional profile and a unique taste.
The raw milk used in our production has not been heated above 40Â°C.
This preserves the microbial flora, which is so important in giving cheeses their distinctive taste.
After the cheeses are made, we place them in our maturing room, on spruce boards.
For several weeks, or sometimes months, each cheese is rubbed, washed and turned.
It is this care and attention that allows the aromatic qualities so characteristic of our local cheeses to develop over time.
Fromagerie Bouchet first presented its cheeses at the Concours Général Agricole – a prestigious competition held as part of the Paris International Agricultural Show – in 2006. Since then, we have regularly featured among the winners, receiving:
- 7 gold medals,
- 9 silver medals,
- 3 bronze medals,
Based on our consistent record in securing competition medals, we were awarded the Prix d’Excellence at the Concours Général Agricole in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
