Pays d'Auge, the cradle of Camembert
The birthplace of Camembert cheese, Pays d'Auge reflects Normandy’s generous image.
The undulating Normandy countryside has valleys crisscrossed by numerous streams and is chequered with orchards and fields surrounded by hedges. The inhabitants of the many hamlets scattered at random along the sinuous country lanes lived for a long time in isolation, but as livestock farming developed, their isolation lessened.
The well watered earth and the mild and moderate climate provide generous grazing. Normandy cows produce a uniquely high quality, fragrant and creamy milk.
