Forx Farm Gruyere Cheese

Forx Farm is a family owned and operated business, located in the beautiful rolling hills of Upstate South Carolina, near Lake Hartwell. After we, Tammy and Ron Lubsen, immigrated from The Netherlands to the USA in 1980, we settled down in the upstate. Practicality dictated to buy the milk from Certified Dairies instead of having our own milk cows. Forx Farm buys raw milk from Hickory Hill Farm in Edgefield, SC and from Happy Cow Creamery in Pelzer, SC. Our cheese is hand made in small batches with modern equipment, but using authentic recipes. The Gruyere is made from raw milk, as it retains its natural nutrients and benefits. Cheese made from raw milk has a fuller, richer flavor. Raw milk cheese must ripen a minimum of 60 days, at strictly controlled temperature and humidity. Gruyere has a delightfully nutty, spicy, full flavor, and is delicious as a table cheese, as well as the basic ingredient in fondue.
