Laiterie-Fromagerie Hunkeler

Close to nature

Sommentier lies at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level in the Glâne district, some 7 km from Romont. This small farming settlement offers a romantic view across to the Moleson and the small town of Romont. The hills, which look out over the Jura Mountains and the foothills of the Alps, make a magical destination for walkers. In clear weather conditions it is possible to count 21 church spires. We have been running our cheese dairy since 1988. In 1995 we opened a small shop, in which we sell our speciality products. Every day we process 4,000 – 6,000 kg of silo-free milk to make AOP Gruyère, Vacherin Fribourgeois AOP and le Petit Glânois (also with wild garlic) as well as yoghurt, butter and Ziger. Our high quality milk is supplied by 10 local milk producers.
