  • Very good cheese factory where you can discover the Bishop bridge and Livarot manufacturing process (mainly). The explanations are clear and available to all. The shop is really rich and provided. You can taste the cheeses at will. To recommend to lovers of dairy products (there is also the cream and butter).
