Bergfichte

Cow Milk, Raw

The Bergfichte most likely marks the beginning of Willi Schmid's reputation as an outstanding cheese maker. It was originally created during his time with partner Ernst Diriwaechter under the name "Försterkäse" and then changed to "Bergfichte" after the two split due to disagreements. The "Försterkäse" was still produced by his former partner but in no way matches the quality of the Bergfichte because it is a pasteurized cheese with quite a chewy consistency. We got many complaints from people buying the Försterkaese believing this was the original product. So don't make that mistake. If it is not from Willi, it is not the real thing. Because the Bergfichte is a washed rind cheese made from raw Jersey cow milk, with a centuries old recipe as its base. Other cheese makers have tried to copy it, unfortunately without coming close to the original.
