One of the four PDO cheeses of Normandy
The cheese of Neufchâtel in the Pays de Bray is the oldest of the Norman cheeses. Documents dating from 1035 already mention it. In the shape of a heart, it was offered to English soldiers during the Hundred Years' War by the young girls of Normandy. It is part of the four PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheeses of Normandy, along with Livarot, Camembert, and Pont-l’Évêque. Florence and Philippe Monnier, who promote production and direct sale on the farm, have seen their PDO cheese awarded several times at the Paris International Agricultural Show.
