The basis for an honest natural product

Our Hay Milk

Hay milk is an exceptional product with an exceptional background and an exceptional story to tell. For us it goes without saying – but a lot of people do not know much about the origin of hay milk. Thus, we explain what makes it so rich and unique.

Hay milk comes from cows ...

... that are exclusively fed on grass and hay. This means our 22 farmers do not give silage or other fermented feed and, of course, also refrain from genetically modified feed.
Instead our cows feed exclusively on fresh grass and herbs in summer and dried hay in winter as well as a small amount of grain.

The ways of processing ...

... could hardly be shorter as there are no big distances to be made in the Tegernsee valley. The fresh hay milk is delivered from the farm straight to our dairy, where it is further processed by hands. Our closest farm lies just 500 meters from our doorsteps. The "furthest" travel is from the Grundner farm, which is located 15 kilometers from us.

So what makes our hay milk so unique ...

... is its natural, full taste, its special microbial spectrum, a low amount of butanoic acid bacteria and a high amount of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. This, of course, effects the production, the taste and the texture of the cheese.

All this results ...

... in the hay milk’s special advantages: it can be processed without any additives and preservatives, without high temperatures and thus is the honest basis for true natural products.
