Fodor's Expert Review Maison du Gruyère

Gruyeres Farm/Ranch

Before going up to town, you can visit the very touristy Maison du Gruyère, a demonstration fromagerie (cheese dairy) where the famous cheese is produced with fully modernized equipment. Demonstrations are given two to four times a day, depending on the season. There's also a shop and a restaurant that sells every variation on a cheese dish you ever dreamed of (including three-course "Gruyère cheese menus").
