The Sciaz Farm

With the help of his father David, Michel Isoz, (otherwise known as Piat) runs the family farm, the Sciaz, in La Lecherette situated at 1450 meters altitude in the region of Château-d’Oex.

With a herd of 20 heads of cattle, these dairy cows provide the milk required to produce Michel’s specialty cheese, the Piat. This soft cheese is unique to the region of the Pay-d’Enhaut.

The closest thing to a ‘Piat’ cheese is the Savoyard Reblochon AOC. Piat cheese is sold in the majority of shops in the Pays-d’Enhaut along with many other shops in the Lake Leman region. With a monthly production of 300 wheels of cheese, this delicious ‘high in calorie but affordable price’ speciality can be found during the winter months on the ski slopes in the Vaud Alps….this speciality is called the Tartipiat. The Tartipiat is a filling meal of melted cheese and potatoes. It look likes the Tartiflette and can warm up even the coldest skiers!

The Isoz family welcomes you to their alpine chalet and invites you to sign up for their program, Adopt a Cow, which allows you to visit and milk ‘your cow’ during the cheese producing season.

The refreshment bar of La Sciaz is open with a small menu and drinks on weekends until the end of September. Their table d'hôte will be pleased to welcome you on reservation only and from 12 persons.
