La Chevrotière is a cheese with a beige rind and a smooth whitish paste dotted with holes. This tomme features lactic and vegetal aromas, and flavours that are delicately caprine, lactic and floral.

La Chevrotière is a certified organic cheese made from the milk of a single herd of goats. Its name is a historical reminder of the place where it is made. La Chevrotière is the name of an ancient seigneury formerly located between the seigneuries of Grondines and Deschambault. Today you can still visit the Moulin de la Chevrotière, dating back to 1802.


Fromagerie des Grondines was inaugurated in 2007 at the AACAT farm, owned by Charles Trottier and Guylaine Rivard. The couple had long dreamed of making cheese to take advantage of the milk from their Brown Swiss dairy herd. The dream started taking shape in 2004, when the farmers joined forces with their friend and amateur cheesemaker Louis Arseneault. A project manager in Montreal at the time, Mr. Arseneault, who was already making cheese in the basement of his ancestral home in Grondines, decided to leave the city and devote himself to the project. For a few years the three partners tinkered with their product, got trained in cheesemaking techniques, enlisted the help of cheese consultants, and, more importantly, practised their new passion, acquiring most of their current knowledge by trial and error.
