This soft farm cheese with a bloomy rind is aged for 30 days and made with pasteurized milk drawn from the Holstein and Jersey cows on the family farm. Under its fine, white and fluffy rind is a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth, cream-coloured cheese featuring generous aromas of warm cream and vegetable undertones. Its texture is delightfully creamy.
Le BRIE Paysan is named in honour of field labourers, who are the bedrock of our agriculture. It is of course also a farm cheese, meaning cheese made with milk from the farm and processed on the farm.
It is available from the Fromagerie du Presbytère, at specialty cheese shops and grocery stores, and in some supermarkets.
