Named after the small village of Morbier in the Jura mountains where it was first made. The ash layer in Morbier Cheese originates from an old cheesemaking tradition. The cheesemaker would take leftover curd from making Comté, sprinkle a little ash on top to stop a skin forming, then top it up in the morning with the next day's curd. Today, the vegetable ash is purely decorative.

It's a great time to try Morbier! 25% OFF for a limited time!

What is a Co-Op?

The 7 Co-op Principles

Like all cooperatives, Open Harvest operates under the following guiding principles.

Voluntary and Open Membership

We are a voluntary organization, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.

Democratic Member Control

We are a democratic organization controlled by our members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership.

Members’ Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of the cooperative. The economic benefits of a cooperative operation are returned to the members, reinvested in the co-op, or used to provide member services.

Autonomy and Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their cooperative autonomy.

Education, Training and Information

Cooperatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperatives. They inform the general public about the nature and benefits of cooperation.

Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

Concern for Community

While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.
