Coffee cheese experience - Hug a Fjällko!
As a forager and food creator I really enjoy my fellow food artisans in the area. One of them is Mathantverkshuset in Vuollerim who makes cheese from the traditional Mountain cows, a half an hour car or bus ride from Jokkmokk. As well as an half an hours ride from the spectacular destinations of Treehotel and Arctic Bath in Harads!
Welcome to join a tour to meet the cows and the passionate people who take care of them and make the cheese.
Here is a nice post in English from Food and Fork:
Hug a Fjällko & taste coffee cheese
We meet at Mathantverket Vuollerim and take a 10 min walk through the village to the cow's summer garden. Here we greet the unique and endangered breed Fjällko which gives fantastic fine milk to the cheeses that are produced in the village dairy. Weather permitting, you can hug a mountain cow while we tell about the farm and life at the Arctic Circle. Back at Mathantverket, you are offered real coffee with coffee cheese, served in a wooden cup that you get as a memory.
It will be possible to buy cheeses and other food crafts in our shop "Gärda: s Fik & Butik", or buy a simpler lunch. For those of you who love our cows, there is a unique chance to adopt a Fjällko!
