Le Fleurmier has the white fuzzy rind typical of bloomy cheeses. Its cream-coloured paste is rich and velvety. It features subtle aromas with earthy buttery notes, and a pleasant mushroomy-buttery taste.
The name of this Camembert type cheese is inspired from the French words for bloomy rind and farmer's cheese. It was introduced by the Laiterie in 2000.

It met with great success until the 70s when industrial-sized dairies began to emerge, an era when artisan and regional dairies and creameries were quickly vanishing. In the 80s, Baie-Saint-Paul’s dairy abandoned its milk-bottling activities to concentrate on cheesemaking.Read More
