Big Cheese - 21 Oct 2013
For five generations Jacques Murith's family has worked in picturesque corner of Switzerland to produce dairy product - Gruyere. The firm and slightly nutty-flavoured cheese is both tricky and time-consuming to make, and from mid-May to mid-October the Muriths devote almost all their time to the process.

GRUYERES, Switzerland
Cheese maker and farmer Jacques Murith prepares the whey to make serac at the Proveta pasture in Gruyeres, western Switzerland, June 13, 2013. During the summer grazing season, starting mid-May to mid-October, the fifth generation Murith family produce a distinctive mountain pasture Gruyere cheese. Each wheel of cheese weighs between 25-40 kilograms, and takes a minimum of six months to mature. Some 200 wheels are produced each year from the unpasteurized milk from his herd of cows and sold locally. Picture taken June 13, 2013.
