Société Fermière Rochefort Ardennes

This is a region where cows are treated like queens and where the word “terroir” really means something. It was right in the heart of this well-preserved landscape that Rochefort Butter was born. 

As our parents Marie-Josée & Arthur started out in 1948, we have chosen to carry on the tradition of real butter by putting it back where it belongs, right in the middle of our table.

Since 1998, with the help of Trappist monks from the Abbey of Saint Rémy de Rochefort, we have been developing cheese recipes to tempt the taste buds of young and old alike.

Pure, Natural Products

Our butters and cheeses are simply shaped using a mechanical manufacturing process with cow’s milk as their basic ingredient. 

Authenticity and Tradition

 In our recipes, we want to reflect our region, but also to keep our parents’ savoir-faire alive. We want to offer authentic, gourmet products that are a pleasure to eat.

A Family-run, 100% Belgian Business

In 1948, Arthur Mathot started his business in the small village of Celles. In the 1970s, he was joined by the second generation. The butter side of the business is still based in Celles, while Rochefort is the home of cheese operations. The company is not a member of any industrial group, is 100% Belgian and family run.

A Passion for Flavour

Passionate and knowledgeable, we are constantly on the lookout for the best butter and cheese recipes to develop.  


We comply with the highest food hygiene standards and are IFS and BRC certified, among others.

Always committed to tackling our society’s challenges when it comes to the environment and quality, it felt only natural to turn to organic farming. We have been developing organic cheese and butter recipes since 2007.
