Two generations of the Claudepierre family have been making cheese for over 20 years on their farm in a natural park in the Vosges Mountains. It is here where Munster Fermier is made from the rich and buttery milk collected from their cattle, which enjoy the wildflower-rich pasture in spring and summer and are fed with local hay in winter.. The cheese is then matured in their humid cave and washed with brine to develop a thin, sticky pale orange-yellow rind housing a soft and creamy paste.
Munster Fermier is known for its powerful aroma, typical of washed rind cheeses, though its quite strong flavours are surprisingly gentler than its smell! Its complex taste is unveiled by the buttery notes of the first bite and contrasted with the sharper tang of the rind, with an occasional hint of bitterness.
