Artisan Swiss cheese from Rolf Beeler to celebrate Swiss National Day

** 1st August is Swiss National Day
Hi Cheese Friend

Tomorrow is Swiss National Day – a date that, according to Wikipedia, is inspired by the date of the Federal Charter of 1291, placed in “early August” (primo incipiente mense Augusto). The document is one of several dozen pacts attested for the territory of Switzerland in the period of the mid-13th to mid-14th century.
Wow, 1291! That’s old, isn’t it? It means Switzerland will celebrate its 722nd birthday tomorrow. You surely need a lot of breath to blow out the candles on that cake!

To celebrate this special day, we thought we do what we do best and present you with a new artisan Swiss cheese that we just got in from Switzerland: The Sélection Beeler Hagebuttenkäse. The what? Let us explain: Hagebutte is German for rose hip, the fruit of the rose plant and Käse is, well, cheese of course. Here’s a photo of the gorgeous cheese:
Our new Selection Rolf Beeler Hagebuttenkaese
The dried and shredded rose hip is added to the milk during the production and is then also rubbed in on the outside before it is matured for 4 months. This then is also the time when Rolf Beeler adds a white mould to the outside. The dairy farmer of this cheese is the same person who also produces our beloved Toggenburger.

Where can you get it? We’re glad you asked – the wonderful cheese is currently available at Bill’s Farm in the Queen Victoria Market ( .

** Emmental on Special
Speaking of Bill’s Farm, to celebrate Swiss National day, the lovely guys also put up a special on our Sélection Beeler Emmental. What better way to celebrate Swiss National Day than to have the most iconic Swiss cheese (and one of our favourites!) on your cheese board?

** Online Stores
And, before we bore you too much, just this one – we’ve been asked a few times if our cheese can be shipped outside Victoria. Our retail partners can certainly help you out! Richmond Hill & Larder, for example, has a wonderful online store ( containing a number of our cheeses. At the moment they are featuring our Sélection Beeler ready-made, artisan fondue mix ( . This certainly is a true, Swiss winter delight!

So, once again, happy Swiss National Day tomorrow and happy cheese munching. Plus, who knows, we might even see you at one of the many Swiss festivities this week – for example the Swiss National Day picnic in Heidelberg ( this Sunday from 12 to 4pm where we will be present with some of our range of artisan cheese.
