Gruyere AlpageBedford Cheese Shop
Every summer cattlemen in the valleys throughout Switzerland prepare their herds for the voyage up the mountainside. The tradition of moving the animals up the lush lands, while the lower pastures begin to brown out and dry, is known as Transhumance, and has been practiced for centuries. During these months the cows that yield rich and luscious milk for these wheels graze freely throughout the day. Only one wheel of this exceptional Gruyere is made a day, and we are proud to procure a few for you to try. Nutty, sweet, complex and rare, this is a true treat for anyone who loves a Swiss.
