Excellent visitor centre to learn about and see local Camembert cheeses being made such as Livarot and Pont L'Eveque. You can try and buy all the cheeses that they make.
Interesting visit to this dairy which produces the Livarot, one of the most popular cheeses of the region. Some movies illustrate the stages of milking and the characteristics of the pastures. Along the way you can see live all stages of production. The visit ends in a large hall where you can taste various cheeses and shop.
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).
Excellent visit, we can assist in all stages of cheese making. In addition it is free. Good tasting at the end.
