Got Butter?

April 18, 2014

“Can we kidnap the producer?” Also spoke Rose O’Dell-King, foodwriter and owner of “Rosy Tomorrow’s Heritage Farm” in North Fort Myers, FL. Such was her praise about our Lenker Bergbutter (alpine). It differs from commercially produced butter and what the US-customer is used to consume in many ways: It is made in a single dairy, located in the Lenk in the midst of the Bernese Alps. Beside the pasteurized cream that comes from healthy alpine cow’s milk it is enriched with the fat of the whey (yes, you read correctly) which results in a powerpack of flavors. We can’t believe you eat anything else.

An Oscar for Swiss cows?

March 19, 2014

We don’t know how the cows would take care of the Oscar acceptance speech but the cattle of cheese maker and farmer Ruedi Foehn are definitively the stars in “Toeny’s Bridal Journey”, a historical documentary that is currently shown in Swiss movie theaters. Foehn is the maker of the “Alp Draeckloch”, a highlight in the Beeler Selection.

Quality Cheese got the rights to show you the movie trailer as well as a report by the Swiss TV news broadcast “Schweiz Aktuell”. You’ve got to watch these. The two videos are educational, they tell an almost forgotten story that has shaped an important part of Switzerland, they show the benefits of transhumance – in a nutshell: They tell about  a vanishing world that we – Quality Cheese and our partners – desperately try to keep alive.
