Käserei Tufertschwil

Käserei TufertschwilKäserei Tufertschwil lies nestled in Lutisburg, Switzerland, a town of 300 people, about 700 meters above sea level up in the Saint-Gallen region of Northeastern Switzerland. Originating as a dairy in 1896, it was bought by the Rass family in 1987, and has continued to follow the traditional village dairy model to this day. Walter Rass, Master Cheesemaker , honed his skills making Appenzeller, but new Swiss dairy regulations allowed him to create Challerhocker in 2003. Rass makes cheese once a day, using milk sourced from within a mile of his cheese making facility that is dropped off twice daily by the dairy farmers.
