Girenbad Cheese Factory
Twice a day, seven milk suppliers deliver fresh raw milk to the Girenbad cheese factory. It is immediately processed according to traditional methods. In addition to our popular products 'Bachtelstei' and 'Senne-Flade', we are producing about ten other local cheese specialities. Our cheese master will be happy to explain his skills to you and guide you through our production rooms and curing cellars.
