Le Marechal is a raw cows milk cheese produced exclusively at the Fromagerie de Granges-Marnard Dairy in the town of Corcelles-AUX-Payernes in Switzerland. The cheese is manufactured in copper cauldrons with milk delivered twice a day to the creamery and pressed in hemp fabric and wooden vats.  The cheese is then covered in thyme, oregano, and other country herbs and aged in caves for about five months. The flavor is strong and nutty that resembles most to a sharp Gruyere with undertones of the herbs.
