We are delighted that our cheese range made from pasture milk is “g.t.S.”-certified (TSG, “Traditional Speciality Guaranteed”). The European Union only awards the pasture milk TSG seal to products that are made to a traditional method, that is, a production or processing method or a traditional combination that has been in use for over thirty years. Our pasture milk specialities such as the Allgäuer Bergkäse and Allgäuer Emmentaler, plus our Herzjunge-Bauernkäse and the 1839 anniversary cheese in every version, self-service pieces, blocks in various sizes for deli counters and self-service chiller cabinets, are all recipients.
“We are delighted to receive this certification. To us, it’s the confirmation of what we have been doing for decades: making cheese from regional pasture milk. Just as we did 170 years ago, we still obtain the best raw milk exclusively from local mountain farming regions, where the dairy cows are fed according to the seasons. In summer, the cows graze on fresh meadows. The meadows are mown, the grass dried, and the resulting hay is used as fodder for the cold season,” explains managing director Ludwig Sontheim.
