CHEESUS alpine cheese is produced on these Swiss Alps.
Alp Meeren is located in Obstalden, Canton Glarus, 1800 metres above sea level. It is leased by the Obstalden-Mühlehorn alpine cooperative. Besides 53 cows, Meeren also has cattle and mules. The alp is managed by the alpine farmers Patrick and Daniel. Among other things, they produce cheese, butter and meat here.
Meeren is a very secluded alp, the uppermost Stafel where cheese is made can only be reached on foot - but the view is definitely worth a visit. Since summer of 2019, the Meeren Alp has been equipped with a mobile cheese dairy, which in 2019 will be used to make 16,530 litres of milk and 1.7 tonnes of cheese.
Alp Nünenen belongs to the municipality of Rüeggisberg in the Bernese Oberland and lies 1609 metres above sea level. It is owned by the Nünenen Alp Corporation and is managed by alpine dairymaid Sarah Gross and her team. In summer they live together with 120 cattles, 12 cows, 6 goats, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 6 chickens in the alpine hut Chueberg.
Alp Nünenen is characterised by its beautiful nature and views of Lake Thun and the imposing Gantrisch. Since May this year, Alp Nünenen has had a mobile cheese dairy. Sarah produces cheese and also gelato according to a genuine original recipe, which visitors can enjoy.
The Chueberg Hut is located in the Gantrisch area at 1608 m above sea level. It can be easily reached by car from Riggisberg (direction Gurnigel) or from Zollhaus (FR) via Schwefelbergbad.
