Langenmatt-Fräkmünt Alpine Cheese Dairy

Alpnach

 

Karin und Andreas Gasser-Niederberger and their children farm the alps of Langenmatt (1,350 m above sea level) and Fräkmünt (1,499 m above sea level) on the Pilatus. The 40 hectare area provides grazing for 30 dairy cows and almost a dozen young cows in the summer. On which, during this period, the alpine couple process 30,000 litres of milk over an open fire in accordance with OIC Certification (Organisme Intercantonal de Certification Sàrl) to create Mount Pilatus cheese. In autumn, the young family move back to the village of Alpnach, where they run their 15 hectare Grabi home business over the winter in accordance with IP regulations.
