The history of the Andelsbuch alpine dairy began over 110 years ago. Since then, a lot has happened.
2014 was a further step into a successful future. After the conversion and extension, the alpine dairy shop was reopened on 6 December 2014. The Andelsbuch alpine dairy cooperative currently has 155 members and works together with 69 dairy farmers.
The Andelsbuch alpine dairy, founded in 1903, is no longer an insider tip, because the Andelsbucher itself and many cheese connoisseurs from home and abroad have been appreciating the specialities from our small alpine dairy for many years now.
Until 1996 only Emmentaler cheese in loaf form was produced almost exclusively. 1996 the production plant was rebuilt and from this point on different types of cheese could be produced.73 dairy farmers from Andelsbuch, Bersbuch and Müselbach deliver fresh hay milk daily.

Um- und Zubau der Sennerei Andelsbuch 1996
The new investment was proof of the sustainable management of the Andelsbuch alpine dairy. The construction of the company’s own cheese cellar optimised the storage and maturation of Emmental cheese and semihard cheese.
The investments guaranteed not only improved work processes and strict hygiene regulations, but above all more flexibility for market-oriented production. In the course of the conversion, the personnel and sanitary rooms were also modernised and thus cleanly separated from the production rooms.
For the haymilk suppliers, the extension was a major step into the future and is intended to guarantee milk processing in their own village over the long term. As a local supplier, the aim is to make an important contribution to the quality of life in their own community, but also in the common region for the local population.
