Tennengau alp cheese and mountain lamb: the Salzburger Land “Gourmet Region”

Thanks to the geography of Salzburger Land, agriculture and livestock farming here are structured on quite a small scale. Native to the Abtenau region, Tennengau mountain lamb has provided wool, milk and meat to the people here for centuries. Each farm keeps an average of only 20 ewes, who are fed fresh herbs and mountain grass. Tennengau cheese is organic-quality hay-milk cheese. The cows graze at an altitude of 500 – 1,300 m above sea level and are fed home-grown mountain hay in winter. Short transportation routes, sustainable economy and audited organic quality: no wonder it tastes great!
