In Compton, the Fromagerie de la Station is more than just a cheese shop: it also offers several activities, including a bucolic outdoor interpretive tour. Inside, you will find an immersive room where you can experience the conditions of aging cheese: temperature, humidity and smells. There is also an organ of scents that will help you discover the olfactory essences present both on the farm and in the cheeses.
