History of Les Montagnards farm

The origin of the Ferme les Montagnards dates back to 1982, when it was built. The establishment welcomes dairy cows, then cows specially selected to produce Reblochon. Everything is going well until the summer of 2010 when the farm disappears in a fire. After this dramatic event, the owners took 3 years before relaunching a project: making a new start with the welfare of animals and employees as a guideline. This is how in 2013 the farm rose from its ashes with new innovative infrastructures!

A one-of-a-kind farm

Since its reconstruction, Les Montagnards farm is an example of which Combloux is very proud! The animals are treated with affection and enjoy excellent living conditions. Everything is designed to comply with both regulations and animal welfare. To meet this challenge, the farm has invested in state-of-the-art equipment. For example, cows are milked when they want by an intelligent robot, capable of recognizing the cow that comes its way. You can also witness this process during the visit!


Visit of the educational farm

During your visit you are warmly welcomed by Delphine. After a presentation of the different buildings, she will explain to you how the various machines work and introduce you to her little residents: cows, goats, pigs, rabbits, geese, hens, ponies... Finally, the secrets of a good Reblochon will be revealed to you!

The making of Reblochon

Reblochon is the emblematic cheese of our territory! Its production is highly regulated and you have to respect a whole set of specifications to use this appellation. Whether in the choice of the breed of cows, in the delimitation of the geographical area, in the feeding of the animals or in the production time, this cheese requires a certain expertise.

During the different stages of the visit, your guide will explain the different points of importance to respect to make Reblochon, show you the techniques for transforming milk into cheese and offer you a little tasting!
