If you love cheese, good artisan cheese that is, you’ve come to the right place. Providing the Rolf Beeler and the Caroline Hostettler selections we guarantee what our name “Quality Cheese” says: We select only the very best cheeses from our native Switzerland.

But this website is more than just about our cheeses. We are interested in cheese as one of the main food products in human history as well as in the – sometimes daunting – task of artisan cheese making. Over the years our network has grown considerably. And our friends and partners support our philosophy.

Founded three years ago our “Adopt-an-Alp” program enters a new dimension: On her trip to Switzerland in the summer of 2015 Caroline has finalized the framework with the SAV (Schweizerischer Alpwirtschaftlicher Verband, Swiss Society of Alpine Economy) for an exclusive collaboration in order to represent their visions and goals on the US market. The SAV, coneected to the Swiss Federal Government, will give full support to promote the Alpage cheeses made during transhumance in the summer. Therefore Quality Cheese will have access to a lot more transhumance producers and, consequently, there will be more “Alps to adopt” by the American consumers. This program not only brings the best cheeses with scientifically proven healths benefits to the US market, it also plays a significant part in supporting transhumance and help those farmers that are still willing to deal with its hardship.

Going into the 2016 season Adopt-an-Alp by Quality Cheese has been officially registered as a trademark. The program features 6 new Alps for a total of 20.

The customers of “Adopt-an-Alp” will be able to get all communication through the website Adopt-an-Alp.com.
