«The secret of the best raw milk lies
in our fresh grass and hay.»

Emmentaler AOP is made from natural raw milk that is produced in close proximity to the cheese dairy. The farms are often family businesses that are passionately devoted to their small herds, with an average of just 26 animals. Our dairy farmers know all their cows by name and look after them personally every day.
The well-being of their animals is their top priority – because Bella, Fiona and Nina only produce the very best raw milk when they are fit and healthy.

This is what Emmentaler AOP dairy herds enjoy:
