Gais Alpine Dairy

The Gais Alpine Dairy lies at 950 metres above sea level, nestled in the hilly surroundings of the Appenzellerland region, between Lake Constance and the Säntis Mountain. We are a fully independent private enterprise with six employees.

Altogether we process 25,000 – 30,000 kg of the finest Swiss mountain milk every day, making a range of Swiss mountain and semi-hard speciality cheeses as well as Raclette cheese.
The ingredients all come from our local Appenzeller milk suppliers. We know all our dairy farmers well and can therefore have full confidence in the quality of the milk they supply. The farms are all located up in the mountains, where the cows spend every day out in the meadows enjoying the fresh Alpine grass.

We put a lot of importance to producing natural, high quality products from a very traditional region. Here at the Gais Alpine Dairy we pride ourselves on our environmentally friendly production methods and the high quality of our cheese. We only use Alpine milk from the mountains of the Appenzellerland region, for which we have the relevant certification.
Every Saturday morning we sell our own products directly from our farm shop. We offer a wide range of semi-hard cheeses for your enjoyment! Come and visit us!
