Fromagerie Combremont, a Gourmino cheese dairy
Daring to try new things and experimenting; that's what makes the profession of cheesemaker interesting for me.
Fromagerie Combremont is an artisanal cheese dairy located in Combremont-le-Petit, a village surrounded by fields in the Broye region of Vaud. Thanks to a young, creative and passionate team, we produce and refine a variety of cheeses from local cow and goat milk. We make our specialties of soft, semi-hard, hard and blue cheeses, as well as the undisputed Gruyère AOP.
I combine in my cheese dairy the best of my experience
Growing up in a cheese-making family in the Allgäu (Germany), I have cheese-making in my genes. Before I took over my own business, I wanted to learn from the best in every discipline. That's why I worked in different companies - from small to industrial - and in 5 different countries. Today, I combine the best of all experiences in my own dairy, la Fromagerie Combremont.
I have completely rebuilt and renovated the cheese dairy after taking over in 2016.
There is nothing that I can't make in my cheese dairy. The processes are set up efficiently, allowing me to experiment and make many other specialties in addition to my flagship product, Gruyère AOP.
13 cow milk and
2 goat milk suppliers
The milk suppliers are all within a radius of 4 kilometers to the dairy. The local processing of the fresh and rich milk is crucial for the quality of my cheeses.
