Third generation cheese maker Matthieu Megard uses local organic milk to make his range of cheeses. Longing for the traditional cheeses of the French Alps where he grew up, Matthieu set out to make cheeses that reflected the local Victorian terroir whilst capturing the essence of some of France’s most loved cheeses. The result is a compact range of handmade organic cheeses; all rich and full of flavour.

L’Artisan Fermier is a semi-hard, smear ripened cheese reminiscent of a classical Morbier with an ash layer through its centre. It is pressed for 12 hours in cloth, salted in a brine bath and then smeared every second day with a brine solution. After six weeks, the rind develops a reddish tinge and is slightly sticky to touch. It has a well-rounded nutty flavour with the slightest smokey finish and develops a stronger earthy character as it matures. It’s a great table cheese and melts well, too.
