La Suisse Normande?

Founders Fabienne Mathieu and Frédéric Guitel are originally from Europe—she hails from Switzerland (Suisse, in French), and he's from France, in the region of Normandy. Put them together, and you get La Suisse Normande. The name also pays tribute to a tiny area in Normandy whose landscape bears a striking resemblance to the Swiss countryside.

The Farm

vignette

La Suisse Normande was initially a dairy farm. But over the years, in the pursuit of self-sufficiency, operations evolved in lockstep with our core values—sustainable and principled agriculture. We are proud to continue these practices today from farm to table.

It all starts in the field. Each spring, we work the land to sprout wholesome food for the herd. Our Alpine and Saanen goats primarily eat hay and cereals, reflecting their natural diet. And all of the goat milk we process is entirely from our own happy animals. Feel free to stop by and say hi!

The Cheeseworks

In April 1995, Fabienne and Frédéric started the cheeseworks to boost the farm’s self-sufficiency. Since then, meticulous cheesemakers have been crafting the cheese according to time-honoured methods.

Pasteurization

Once the milk arrives from the farm, it is pasteurized (heated to a certain temperature for a given time) to ensure all harmful bacteria are eliminated.
