The Perrières cheese dairy

The «Fruitière» is the place where milk is turned into cheese, where the fruit of the milk is collected, hence the word «fruitière». Since they work with a short supply chain, they source our milk from several producers based in Verchaix, Les Gets and Avonnex and use it to make abondance, tomme, raclette and saveur des Gets cheeses, which they sell on our premises.
Every Wednesday at 10 am there is a free guided tour to see the cheese being made.
