Hay milk cheese and pasture milk cheese
Welcome to pure hay milk cheese pleasure!
Here in Austria, we call our fresh, natural milk for our cheese production hay milk (hay mild standard) – in Germany, more and more of pasture milk (unlike Austria: there is no binding standard for this milk) is spoken.
Nature is our most precious asset. The production of hay milk is the most original form of milk production. The production of hay milk and further processing is as old as the keeping of dairy cows in agriculture (about 5th century BC). Thanks to the natural feeding (hay and cereal meal – no fermented feed such as grass silage or corn silage), hay milk contains the best quality, best taste and many ingredients that are good for our health.

Hay milk cheese – A special cheese flavor!
On our alpine meadows and pastures there is a colorful variety. Over 50 different types of grasses and herbs are available year round for our cows. Whether Wundkle, Labkrau, red clover or plain oat, just to name a few, nature provides our dairy cows varied feed. This tastes in the end not only our cows, but also us. More biodiversity means more flavor and more quality in raw milk.

Hay milk cheese – the secret of the best, highest quality cheese
Our alpine cheese makers swear by the pure taste of hay milk. In cheese production can therefore be dispensed with all additives and preservatives. First-class hay milk quality just needs nothing else. There are of course no limits to the variety of cheeses.
Hay milk – even good for the heart
Hay milk and hay milk products have a higher content of omega-3 fatty acids than normal milk. Omega 3 fatty acids are among the unsaturated fatty acids that our body can not produce itself. But since they are necessary, we have to absorb them with food. These fatty acids also have a positive effect on the health of our cardiovascular system.
