About Heublumen

As the Swiss Alps rise, temperatures drop and snow permanently settles atop what’s called the Glacial zone. Beneath this, yet above the tree line, sits the glorious Alpine zone. In Alpine regions, due to the low average temps, nothing larger than small plants grow, leaving natural wild pastures of grass and wild-flowers to thrive. The Canton of St. Gallen is located in north-east Switzerland. Here the economy is fueled by the small herds that graze these remote pastures. Milk producers ban together through a Village Dairy structure and provide milk to Cheese makers like Thomas Stadelmann, a 2nd generation private village dairy owner that produces the flowery raw milk cheese called Heublumen (hoy-BLUE-men), meaning “hayflower”. With this cheese Thomas takes the local Alpine hay, shreds it, and presses it to the freshly shaped curds and allows the rind to form around the hay, artfully fusing it to the paste. What’s left is a wheel of cheese that not only represents the flavors of the land, but a passion of the farmers and a budding rejuvenation of thriving Swiss dairy farmers.
