Le Cavalier

A mild semi-hard cheese from a farmer who foregoes the use of mechanisation and only works with horses – obviously Freiberger horses from the region.
They are compact and deep-chested in equestrian terms, with a short, stable back and strong neck. Freibergers are the last original Swiss horse race to come from the Franches Montagnes (Freiberger in German) hills in the Jura. Oursupplier uses these horses to cultivate his fields. His cows seem to appreciate the gently cultivated pastures because the milk he delivers for Le Cavalier is of extraordinary quality.Le Cavalier (the Rider, in English) is a mild, semi-hard cheese, matured for three to four months. Its flavours are aromatic, fruity and pure.
