Les Métayères

Fromagerie du Champ à la Meule

Lanaudière


Semi-soft

M.F. : 28 % Moisture : 46 %

Aged for at least 60 days and made from Lanaudière Holsteins’ thermized milk, this semi-soft, washed-rind cheese is reminiscent of the Victor et Berthold. Its coppery orange rind covered with very fine white fuzz hides a supple, creamy beige interior. Its texture on the palate is most creamy. It features creamy, milky flavours devoid of any bitterness.

A métayère is a share farmer, someone who rents a farm in exchange for a portion of the crops. This cheese was created in 2011 and named Les Métayères in honour of Marguerite Bourgeoys and the sisters of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame de Montréal, who worked on the Maison Saint-Gabriel farm for almost three centuries.

The Les Métayères cheese is available from the cheese maker, at the Maison Saint-Gabriel and in specialty cheese shops.
