description

This cheese proudly carries the name of the family’s great grandfather, Alfred Bolduc. Alfred le Fermier symbolizes a family tradition whose mission is to cultivate the soil, live on it and hand it down to future generations in even better condition.

This pressed, cooked farm cheese made from raw cow’s milk is aged for 8 and 18 months on wood boards. It has a yellowish-orange rind that produces a nice woodsy aroma, a flowery, hazelnut flavour, and can be distinguished by its supple texture.
