About

Tête de Moine is from the Jura region in North West Switzerland, a high mountainous area where the cattle graze on sweet grasses and herbs on alpine pastures, which gives the cheese its very distinctive sweetness, flavour and aroma.

Tete de Moine was initially produced more than eight centuries ago by the monks of the abbey of Bellelay, located in the community of Saicourt, district of Moutier.
