When it comes to milk, origin matters
All good cheese starts with the milk
At Bergader, we don't just focus on high quality during the cheese-making process, we also work closely with our local milk producers on the quality of this precious raw material. Ultimately, fresh milk is the single most important ingredient in all Bergader cheese specialities.
The farms of the 1,700 or so Bergader milk suppliers are located in the breathtakingly beautiful natural landscape of the Bavarian Alps. Hay and grass are found pastures rich in herbs here. This is very important to us as milk tastes different in every region as the feed bases differ.
The commitment and experience of all Bergader milk producers ensures that we only work with tasty and high-quality milk. There are fixed and trusted supply relationships between Bergader and our milk suppliers
which go back generations, passed on from father to son.
The Bergader milk regions include Rupertiwinkel/Burghausen, Chiemgau, the Innviertel in Upper Austria, parts of the Bavarian Uplands and the Schliersee region. Here the locals and tourists can enjoy an unspoiled landscape with clean air while the cows enjoy rich, green pastures with fresh grass and herbs.
