Situated in the heart of the village of Sauvain, Hubert Tarit welcomes you to his traditional cheese dairy. He was born in the region, the Montbrison round cheese
has no secret for him.
Free tasting and sale of local products in the shop.

Hubert Tarit perpetuates his grandfather's tradition and know-how to produce Montbrison Fourme (AOC) according to tradition: from unpasteurised whole milk guaranteed from cows fed without silage, matured slowly in high altitude cellars where fresh springs water runs.
The cottage industry production follows methods inherited from a secular tradition that give an exceptional product.
Here they will explain to you the cottage industry production of Montbrison Fourme made from unpasteurised whole milk guaranteed from cows fed without silage, matured in a natural cellar, AOC since 2002.
You will see the various stages: curdling, salting, moulding, drainage, drying, maturing, and will end the visit by a tasting with rye bread.
