The Fromagerie des Franches-Montagnes is located on the outskirts of the village of Le Noirmont, the new cheese factory – it was inaugurated in the spring of 2019 – meets the latest standards of quality and hygiene. The electricity supply is provided by photovoltaic panels installed on the flat roof. The heat production is guaranteed by a hot water pipe from the chip boiler of a nearby company. Until 2016, the cheese dairy was owned by the Källin family, who still have a store in the heart of Le Noirmont.
The new cheese dairy processes about 5 million kg of milk per year into two PDO products, Tête de Moine and Gruyère. These precise and demanding specifications guarantee high quality milk for the other specialities produced by the cheese dairy, such as the Franches-Montagnes or the Taignon that we have selected.
