The other lord of the plate here is Grataron. Grataron du Beaufortain, also called Grataron d'Arêches, is one of the rare cheeses made from raw and whole goat's milk, with a slightly pressed, uncooked paste and washed rind, born in Beaufortain.
It is circular in shape with a diameter of 8 to 10 centimeters and a thickness of 3 to 4 centimeters for a weight of 350 grams. On the palate, it offers fine goat aromas with sweet terroir flavors with a fruity scent of hazelnuts. An authentic goat cheese, with a very distinct taste. During your stay, do not hesitate to meet the farmers who produce it, such as the Ferme de Monsieur Seguin.
During your holidays, meet the farmers of Arêches-Beaufort who will be happy to show you around their farm and explain their profession to you. You will discover the different farms in the region, the cows that produce the milk used to make Beaufort of course, but also goats, donkeys, pigs, rabbits, chickens, snails… and even llamas! In some farms, you will have the chance to participate in the milking of animals. At the end of the visits, you will taste the specialties produced on site: Beaufort, Grataron, Pormonier, and other cheeses and sausages.
