The beauty of Baldauf cheeses is in the 'hay milk' that is collected from the Allgäuer Braunvieh cow. This prized breed feeds exclusively on hay in the winter months and grasses during the summer, producing a higher quality milk that makes up only 5% of all milk production in Germany. Baldauf is only one of a few producers in Germany using this hay milk in their complete line of cheeses, and this milk is delivered fresh every morning from small local farms in the Allgau region.
Baldauf is situated in the beautiful and serene Allgau region of Germany and was founded in 1862 by businessman Martin Baldauf, who was one of the first to distribute Emmental cheese. With a deep respect for the home region of Allgau, Balduaf continues to support and maintain a close relationship with the local farmers and alpine dairies. The master cheesemakers at Baldauf continue to carry the legacy of cheesemaking in the region, honoring tradition and the love for producing a pure, quality cheese. Relying on handicraft, tradition and the best milk, Baldauf cheeses stand the test of time.

For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
