Sojer Cheese Dairy in the Lechtal | Business with a Long Tradition
The traditional Sojer cheese dairy (built in 1903, leased by the Sojer family since 1955) is located in Steeg in the Lechtal at an altitude of 1,123m and is embedded between the Lechtal and Allgäu Alps. 40 mountain farmers deliver silage-free milk to the dairy twice a day in autumn, winter and spring.
In the summer the dairy business gets daily approx. 5,000 litres of milk from eight pasture huts, which are located between an altitude of 1,600m to 2,500m. First class fresh milk is the result of a great variety of herbs and flowers on the pastures in the valley and on the mountains. The Sojer cheese dairy makes natural produce which is groomed by hand and in a traditional way. The cheese varieties include Lechtal mountain cheese, creamy Tilsiter cheese, Mozarella and the famous Sojer Winzling cheese.
