M.F. : 30% Moisture : 41%
Made with thermized organic milk and aged for three months, this firm farm cheese features distinct floral and fruity aromas. The milk is drawn from Holstein cows on the organic-certified family farm. From mid-May onward, the cows are fed fresh grass in fields with a variety of plants, including white and wild clover, lotus, alfalfa, as well as grasses such as timothy and brome grass. These living crops provide the cheese with tastes that are specific to the Estrie region, which itself is strewn with steep hills, valleys and mountains.
