The idea of jointly processing the fresh milk of Alpbachtal farmers into delicious dairy products was realised in 1945 with the founding of the Reith cheese dairy in Alpbachtal. Since then it has been constantly expanded and renewed.
The dairy Alpbachtaler Heumilchkäserei is supplied with the best meadow and hay milk by 65 hay milk suppliers. In summer, the milk is also delivered fresh from 10 mountain pastures. 22 farmers supply the Alpbachtaler Heumilchkäserei with the purest organic milk.
The quality of the Alpbachtal milk is recognised by the many accolades awarded to the local farmers by the Austrian „Milchgutsiegel“. The crowning distinction is the award for excellence from the „Agramarkt Austria“ – „Genussregion“. The experience and consistency of the master cheesemakers guarantee quality and the best taste. The environment is of great concern to us. The short travel times and the low packaging costs are a contribution to the protection of our sensitive habitat.
The quality of this milk is confirmed by the fact that the farmers have been awarded the Austrian Milk Quality Seal many times. The dairy Alpbachtaler Heumilchkäserei was therefore awarded the AMA Genuss Region designation by Agrarmarkt Austria.
The cheese dairy in Reith im Alpbachtal offers many different types of cheese such as "Alpbachtaler Hornkäse", "Alpbachtaler Kellergold", "Alpbachtaler Stange", "Alpbachtaler Bierkäse". Just taste your way through the delicious Alpbachtaler cheese world!
