Master Cheesemaker Jean-Marie Dunand runs the village dairy at 2,950 feet above sea level in the heartland of traditional Gruyère production in the Fribourg region of Switzerland. The dairy, which dates back to 1900, has been run by Dunand since 1986. He makes 18-20 wheels of Gruyère each day, 365 days a year, using freshly delivered milk from eight small local farms. The cows graze on mountain pasture, and the unique composition of the grass is reflected in the cheese. After wheels have been aged for three months at Le Crêt, Fromage Gruyère SA brings them to their caves 15 km away to continue the affinage.
