Since 2009, European farmhouse cheesemakers and their representatives met once a year to exchange ideas, discuss important topics and compare experiences.
This event has become a three day congress, incorporating farm visits, a conference and discussions within workgroups.
Each year the congress is organised by a different member country.
This years meeting of FACEnetwork – Farmhouse and Artisan Cheese and dairy producers’ European Network – will be held from Wednesday 23th to Friday 25th October 2019 in Valencia.
A wealth of information about milk and cheese from the different regions
of Europe and the personal discourse with colleagues are what make this
meeting unique and exciting. Together we wish to define our goals and
develop new projects. Understanding and insight beyond political borders
and a common commitment to variety in work practices is what we want to
combine forces for at this meeting.
In lectures, presentations and workgroups typical regional cheeses will
be presented. Practical examples and the presentation of the results
from various projects allow each participant to widen their horizons. Culinary highlight is the diner cheese buffet with cheese specialities from different regions of Europe.
For further information you are welcome to ask the contact persons of
the Network of European Farmhouse Cheesemakers. Interested participants are also welcome at any time there.
