Originally created in Brie, France, this cheese has a rich history. French kings
were paid tributes with this cheese, loved by Charlemagne in the 8th century,
crowned le roi du fromage by the Congress of Vienna in 1815, and is still the best
known of the world-renowned cheeses today.
Since the 1850’s, dating back seven generations with great-great…grandfather and grandmother coming from Switzerland with one Jersey calf, the Marcoots have been raising and milking Jersey cattle. In 2010 sisters Amy and Beth embarked on a new adventure in the legacy of the Marcoot Jersey Farm by creating their first wheels of cheese.
