Ateliers en Crettaz / produce - Leysin José Crespo

Les ateliers en Crettaz

In Leysin, Elisa and Yves Barroud take special care of their ewes, for the greatest pleasure of lovers of local products. The Ateliers en Crettaz produce a range of organic food using the wholesome milk of some 30 sheeps. Cheese, yoghurts, soaps,… everything is good with a touch of sheep !

The only producer of the region who can boast 100% organic sheep’s milk products, the cheesemaker offers a varied range of soft to semi-hard cheeses. House speciality is the « Marcel » named in honour of their son. Each day the wheels of cheese are brushed with a brine made from seven medicinal plants.

More unusually, Elisa makes solid shampoos as well as soaps with 25% fresh heated milk. To this, she adds oil to solidify and plants to perfume the soaps ; macerations of calendula, thyme, verbena and sage, all of which she plucks from her garden. Completely natural, these soaps fight the ravages of dry skin and excema.

Several times a year, the family courtyard is transformed into a real market place. Elisa welcomes artists and craftsmenwho can each sell their own home produced wares, mostly organic and natural.
