Every cheese from the Fromagerie Biologique de Vielsalm has a history and roots in the Ardennes region. It also reflects the aspiration of its creators, with a touch of eminent master cheesemaker Alain Vedrines: In a word, everything needed to meet the expectations of lovers of authentic flavours, and to enhance the fresh product sections of distribution and wholesalers.
Our Campagnard range includes not only a particularly delicious “Platteland Kaas” (country cheese), but also a range of thermised cow’s or goat’s milk cheeses (in creamy variety, cream spreads, with ham), Danish blue, and Chester with cow’s milk (including a cheese without lactose), or specific packaging in croquettes (organic and non-organic cheese), perfect for tastings in catering outlets, for instance.
We are thus creating cheeses for all occasions: aperitifs (to be enjoyed with a good beer or a generous wine), for picnics on the run, for more elaborate preparation, or a gourmet tasting for initiates. Our extensive, highly varied range can meet the wishes of a discriminating clientele in search of inspiration.
It will delight lovers of cheeses with rind, hard or soft cheeses, or the subtle flavour of our goat’s cheeses, one of our main creations, always in accordance with the tradition of our region.
We offer distributors and wholesalers a wide choice of flavourful cheeses, with organic and local certification, of course, to enhance the variety of fresh food sections and the pleasure of consumers.
The ChèvrArdennes (goat cheese) dairy is a creation of the Loicq family. Made in Nivelles, these goat’s cheeses feature an ever so successful variety of goat’s milk and tasty cheese specialities. As is the case for all our cheeses, we use a goat’s milk collected in the Ardennes where the finest varieties of graziers grow, which determines their incomparable quality and taste. ChèvrArdennes is now the leading producer of goat’s cheeses in Belgium and offers a wide range of delicious flavours in rondins, blocks, crotins, palets or feuilletés, spreads, with fruits, spices, smoked bacon, in several types of packaging, recognisable among thousands but each with its own imprinted personality.
ChèvrArdennes goat cheeses all have a real goat taste, without being too strong! Delighting the most delicate palates. All this, and also in an organic line. This is an essential aspect for ChèvrArdennes, the leading producer of goat cheeses in Belgium, which has been operating in the very heart of Ardennes’ nature for 35 years.
Ideal for the aperitif or on a slice of bread, this cheese from the Ardennes has a flavour of green meadows under its hard rind that is bound to delight the most discriminating palates.
With organic certification, without preservatives, colorants or food exhausters, VIEUX LIEGE is a genuine traditional cheese that goes perfectly with an artisanal beer of character such as an amber beer.
Produced to commemorate the bicentennial of the battle of Waterloo by the Fromagerie Biologique de Vielsalm, this round cheese with holes has an imperial hazelnut flavour and draws its flavour from a time-honoured recipe from the Vielsalm region. WATERLOO 1815 can be enjoyed in different ways: grated, to enhance your gratins, pasta or onion soups, in aperitif cubes or slices; it is also suited for cordon bleus. It is bound to prove a winner in the sections of distributors.
It is one of our flagships, concocted by our master cheese-maker Alain Vedrines. Its natural smeared rind covers a subtle and delicious taste. Made naturally without melting salt, WATERLOO is ideal for tasting as well as for culinary preparation (for raclette, for instance). It will therefore go perfectly with your menu suggestions for your customers.
Belgium is a land of contrasts, and CAMPAGNARD, a pure tradition organic “Plattelandkaas” (country cheese) reflects our national character. Inspired by a Belgian recipe, it is made here amidst the undulating landscapes in the heart of the Ardennes at the Fromagerie Biologique de Vielsalm, to give CAMPAGNARD a distinctively national quality; our taste of authentic flavours!
ARDENNER is a cheese emblematic of the Ardennes roots and identity of the Fromagerie Biologique de Vielsalm. Its taste stems from deem in the heart of the region and natural local flavours. Ripened over several weeks for the young version, and several months for old and semi-old versions, it is the ideal accompaniment for aperitifs and sandwiches.
