In the last century, few families didn’t have animals, cows, goats or sheep. Today, there are still many farmers and most of them supply the milk used to make the prince of Gruyère cheese, “Beaufort”, PDO since 1968, but also Bleu de Bonneval sur Arc, butter and yoghurts that you will find in the sales outlets of the Haute Maurienne Vanoise Dairy Cooperative.
The herds of sheep and cows graze at high altitude all summer long and thus contribute to the maintenance of the landscape. Several mountain pasture farms welcome you and let you discover their life, hard but beautiful, their products of which they are proud. They are happy to tell you about their work, milking, haymaking, calving, patous, wolves.
