Fromagerie Tête de Moine

Fromagerie Tête de Moine

Delve into the fascinating 800 year old history of this famous cheese. You can visit the dairies at Bellelay, St-Imier, Saignelégier and Villeret.
Tête de Moine AOC cheese is older than the Swiss Confederation (1291). The cheese of the monks of Bellelay is first mentioned a century before the birth of our country. Tête de Moine cheese is not cut, but pared into the shape of delicate rosettes, either with a blade held at right angles to the surface, using the same method as that employed by the monks of the Bellelay abbey, or using a «Girolle», an ingenious device invented by Metafil SA in Lajoux and launched in 1982.

In the Formagerie in Saint-Imier you will be able to take a look behind the scenes and see for yourself how the cheese is produced and ripened. The family-run company Spielhofer SA offers you the opportunity to experience the production processes of the Tête de Moine AOP in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You can engage your senses in an interactive exhibition where you will be introduced to the secrets which make the Tête de Moine AOP unique.
