Description

I'd like to take you on a gourmet tour of Albiez-Montrond in Maurienne, on the Savoie cheese route, including a visit to the milking farm.

This walk is an opportunity to discover the entire history of mountain agriculture up to the Beaufort AOC, as well as the Beaufort AOP, from milking the cows to making Beaufort and the two consecutive gold medals won in 2022 and 2023 at the "Concours Général Agricole" at the Paris "Salon de l'Agriculture".

At the farm, the farmer will tell us about his daily work, herd management and life through the seasons. You can even try milking a cow by hand with the farmer, and you'll soon understand why there's now a milking machine.

I also offer gourmet outings during the summer:
