L’Artisanale du Ris dairy dates from the 50s. It was taken over by Patrick Gévolde in 2000. After working for 25 years in a major dairy group, Patrick decided to come back in his native region near Puy-Guillaume, to make cheese with his wife. Patrick employed 3 persons at first, and only made cow milk cheeses such as Gaperon. Fifteen years later, 15 employees work in the dairy and the latter make cheeses from cow, goat and sheep milks.

Its round shape has roots anchored deeply in the Medieval period. In fact, the shape is obtained using ancient cannonball moulds that were brought back in France from Spain. The shape of the cheese is also a reference to the shape of volcanoes in Auvergne.
