THE STAR OF HARD CHEESES

The cheese that has it all : the biggest, most consumed, and all time favourite! Born in the middle age, its long conservation period meant it could feed an entire family all throughout harsh winters. From the Gruyère family, Comté is exclusively made with raw milk. Farmers quickly understood the importance of joining forces, and as a result, Comté is made using milk collected from several herds.  originating from several herds. These first attemps at a cooperative system was called « fructeries” then got its official name: “Fruitières” (where milk is made to “grow” and “multiply”)

BORN IN THE HEART OF JURA, MADE FROM RAW COW’S MILK

Comté is crafted using raw milk from Montbéliarde or Simmental breeds. For our aged Comté, we use summer milk which is collected when cows are grazing outside in vast fields in the Jura region. Rich in carotin, the grazing fields are the main reason Comté develops its lovely colour and fresh taste.
