"Zillertal Hay Milk Cheese Route"
Natural cultivation of the alpine pastures in Zillertal means hard work and low yields for the hay farmers. The resultant milk, however, is the basis for top class milk and cheese products of international repute. Because the cows and goats graze predominantly on grasses, mountain herbs and pure spring water, the resultant products are both silo and GMO free.
The rich flora of the mountain meadows on calcareous bedrock near Mayrhofen in particular , form the perfect foundation for high quality milk products. Farmeres still scythe the steep pastures by hand, thus maintaining these ancient cultural landscapes.
After the tour of the diary a cheese tasting session rounds of this culinary tour.
