Fromagerie d’Alpage – 1100m
At the foot of the Moléson, surrounded by the fragrant Gruyère pastures, there sits the grey shingled rooftop of a 17th century chalet: the mountain cheese dairy, the Fromagerie d’Alpage. With its traditional restaurant and its stalls full of artisanal specialities, the Fromagerie d’Alpage provides the perfect introduction to mountain cheesemaking during the summer months.
For those feeling active, the Cheese Dairy Trail leads hikers on a walk from the demonstration cheese dairy in Pringy to Moléson’s Fromagerie d’Alpage.
Open every day from Saturday, May 1 to Sunday, september 26th, 2021. The cheese dairy is closed in winter.
A daily cheesemaking demonstration takes place at 10.00 am, lasting 45 minutes everyday until the 26th of september. The cheesemaker will explain the cheesemaking process in French and will even share some of its secrets… Reservation required by phone: +41 26 921 10 44 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Maximum of 50 visitors per demonstration.
Outside of the demonstration times, the world of cheesemaking is explained through an audio-visual presentation. An interpreter is available, for the demonstration and upon reservation only. She will tell you about the history of cheese, sharing a few fun anecdotes, and will be happy to answer all of your questions.
