Fromagerie Belfaux

Fromagerie BelfauxFromagerie Belfaux is located in a somewhat densly populated commercial district in Belfaux, about 5 minutes outside of the city of Fribourg.

The dairy is privately owned by the Eggertswyler family, with father and Master Cheesemaker Michel currently overseeing the dairy and its transition to his son.

Belfaux uses milk from about 10 dairies, depending on the season and their needs. They supplement Gruyere production with some Vacherin Fribourgeois, a common practice in the region. In 2013, the family purchased a new press capable of producing either cheese.

In addition to the dairy, the property features a small shop offering a variety of regional cheeses and a house-packaged fondue shreds vending machine that reputedly needs refilled 2-3 times a day during the holiday season.
