“At Alp Frutt, high above the Lake of Lucerne, cows enjoy spectacular views but are also allowed to choose the best of lush alpine herbs.”

Rösli has Horns 

At Alp Frutt – and most of the farms we have chosen as producers for our cheeses – the cows are not only bearing names, but also their natural horns. Unlike 98% of their European counterparts.

Yes, alpine cheese is about great taste and century old traditions, but animal welfare is also important to us. Freely roaming cows, which still have their horns, are, we believe, happier cows. And happier cows produce better, tastier milk.

Golden Views

The canton of Nidwald, where this cheese comes from, is not as well known for its cheeses as, for instance, the Gruyère region, simply because here the mountainsides are very steep, grass for the cows is therefore very scarce and highly treasured. For centuries, the mountain farmers hardly had enough cheese for their own consumption, making a surplus was barely imaginable. But with food as a basic resource now less scarce, this very precious commodity is gradually becoming available to a larger market.

Every bite of the Frutt 4757 is like enjoying the majestic views from the alpine meadows it originates.
