Cow Milk, Semihard, Thermized
The Berglinde dairy in Buttwil (Canton Argovia) is famous for its specialty cheeses. Cheesemaker Beat Meier has also an education as a farmer and he always was in love with Buffalos. So in 2005 he bought 10 Water buffalos from Italy and brought them to the meadows of the organic operation Brunnenhof Reussegg near the village of Sins and owned by the Villiger family.
By now there are about 40 buffalos that live in a spacious exercise pen. During summer months they are always outside and can cool down in the surrounding ponds. The young buffalos get a special treatment: In the summer they are moved to a nature preserve where they can move freely, observed only by biologists and nature lovers. And during that period in the "wild" the buffalos also "work" for the environment since they also eat reeds, rushes and waterplants and therefore help preventing the silting up of the area.
From that herd cheesemaker Beat Meier gets the organic, silage free milk for his Waterbuffalo products like the "Berglinde Buffalo".
