Known also as Vacherin Mont d'Or, Vacherin de Joux and Vacherin du Haut-Doubs, this traditional Franche Comte cheese has been made for several centuries by the farmers around the Mont d'Or Massif in the Haut Doubs. The region is famous for its traditional, large cheeses such as Gruyere and Comte which require huge quantities of milk to make. Mont d'Or originated, therefore, in the winter months when cows returned from the high pastures and their milk yields reduced causing farmers the need to make a smaller cheese. For this reason, the cheese was, and still is, seasonal, being made only between the 15th August and the 15th March at an altitude of 700 metres.Read More
