The Lechtal cheese dairy lies between the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps at an altitude of 1,123m.
40 mountain farmers deliver fresh non-silage milk to our dairy twice a day in autumn, winter and spring. In the summer we get about 5000 litres of milk daily from 8 pastures. Thanks to the many herbs and flowers that grow at an altitude of 1,500 – 2,500 metres, the milk we process is top class. The fresh milk is processed daily. Our cheese is made based on old production processes and a lot of the work – from production to care - is done by hand. Cheese care is especially important.
Every second day the cheese is daubed with brine and proper mountain cheese takes about half a year to mature. Semi-hard cheese takes about 12 weeks to mature, soft cheese 8 weeks. With this production method our natural cheese gets very agreeable, intensive and powerful in taste. The Sojer cheese dairy gives you an insight into the art of cheese making.
