WE LOVE SWISS CHEESE

Even if we say so ourselves. Our cheesemaking is rooted in the production of Appenzeller started by our grandfather (August Güntensperger) over half a century ago. Having learned his trade we wanted to make our own cheeses – some creamier, some spicier – and we’re proud of the result which is this range of cow’s and goat’s milk cheeses.

ZIEGENKÖNIG

This unique semi-hard Swiss goats cheese is produced with milk from the renowned Toggenburg goats that still roam free in the unspoilt Alpine landscape of the Toggenburg valley where they spend their summer. It is mild in taste with a surprising texture and works well in toasties and paired with fruit.

TOGGENBURGER ZIEGE

Our goat's cheese Toggenburger Ziege is matured for a minimum of 4 months before it leaves our cellars. Most of the milk for this cheese comes from the Toggenburg breed of goat which has been known and loved by farmers since the middle of the 19th century.

APPENZELLER

Next to our own range of cheeses we also still produce Appenzeller cheese. The mild, spicy Appenzeller Classic is treated with a secret herbal brine for at least three months and is one of the most famous Swiss cheese specialities.
