The little story
Born in the 13th century in the valley of Thônes in Haute-Savoie, France, the Reblochon Fermier de Savoie PDO is the result of a clandestine marauding. Farmers who worked on alpine pastures had to compensate the land owner on the basis of the collected milk. The farm workers did not fully milk the cows until after the controllers /owners left. The resumed milking and saved the rest, which was very rich in cream, to make cheeses for their personal consumption.
