(English below) La visite de la fromagerie dure 1h30, et est instructive et très sympathique. La fromagerie est une entreprise familiale qui tourne depuis plus d'un siècle, et c'est vrai que l'on comprend pourquoi en voyant la passion et la volonté de la guide... Sans parler de la dégustation qui donne envie de ne plus jamais acheter de fromage industriel! Une activité touristique originale et un bon moyen de se familiariser avec le terroir local. The visit is 1h30 long. We learned a lot and the overall atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, it is a good way to connect with a passionate, talented small local producer. Their company dates back over a century, and you can definitely understand why when you see the lovely guide's passion for her craft --not to mention the cheese tasting at the end which will make you want to never buy industrial cheese again! Off the beaten track tourism at its best.

Wasn't expecting a touristic tour since we weren't for the entertainment , only some knowledge about the Brie cheese and how it was produced. Since the majority of the guests were French, the tour was in French naturally. We tried to follow up and suffice with a little translation provided to us from time to time. 10 sentences in French 1 in English 😮 The cheese we got to taste at the end was truly great, but can't say that about the tour sorry. Better be a fluent French speaker to enjoy it.

The tour starts at 1630 on a Saturday. Proper family business, your guide is Isabelle, she is the granddaughter. It is a really popular tour for the locals as well so shows how good it is. In the end there were about 30 of us (we were the only English) Isabelle was great at explaining to us in English what was going on after each section of the tour, (short film, museum, cellars and then tasting). It would have been even better if we were better at French! (Our fault,wish we were!) But Isabelle came to our rescue. And to use a phrase one of the other French guys told us after a tasting of the Brie they say- ' the king of cheeses and the cheese of Kings' it certainly was and would certainly recommend this tour, lovely place, lovely people. (Only reason not 5 star is because of our lack of French)

What a great insight into farming and food at a more local level. This place is gorgeous and the hosts just lovely. Not geared to the world of tourism with language options etc this is a local family brie producer who does a brilliant job showing us the world of local quality brie de meaux (et al) cheese production, inc regulation,milk sourcing, history,,,,and of course tasting. Definitely worth a visit and the host is a member of the family and delightful.
