80 customers are in for Adopt-an-Alp

August 3, 2018

We are absolutely thrilled! As of August 3, 2018 80 (eighty) stores, restaurants and markets have committed to Adopt-an-Alp. This is a great support for transhumance and even more welcomed by the farmers this year that has been challenging due to the drought that plagues most of Europa (and other parts of the planet).

Those committments mean an increase of roughly a third compared to last year. It is also good news for the American customer and cheese lover: In the fall you will get cheeses that are superior in craftmanship and scientifically proven beneficial to one’s health.

Transhumance is often a family thing.

Transhumance also takes place in the Jura Mountain Range.

Some chalets have been built in the 18. or 19. century.
