Käserei Obere Mühle is located in Bad Oberdorf, a picturesque mountain town at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Arturo Chiriboga, the master cheesemaker at Obere Mühle, was born and raised in Equador and went to Europe as a young adult to learn the art of making cheese. In Europe he met and fell in love with a Bavarian girl, who he followed home to the Alps to begin his career in cheesemaking. Obere Mühle dairy uses only organic milk of the highest quality, from five local farmers who belong to the Obere Mühle Cooperative. The milk is used to make 14 varieties of cheese, from traditional Alpine style cheeses, to Chiriboga Blue.
