Alpage Gruyere Cracking!
November 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
It’s that wonderful time of year when we receive one of the most special cheeses! Join us in-store as we crack open a 70 pound wheel of Gruyere d’Alpage Guederes! Cheesemaker Michel Mauron, along with his wife and son produce Alpage Gruyere with no electricity. For Alpage production small groups of farmers and cheesemakers practice transhumance, leading their cows high into the mountains for summer grazing allowing the cows to eat untouched flora high in the Alps. Come celebrate Small Business Saturday and watch us open this beautiful wheel from a small producer!
All ages welcome for in-store wheel opening!
