Dairy Drei Zinnen in Toblach
Have you always wanted to know how cheese is produced and why certain types of cheese have holes? The Show Dairy Drei Zinnen in Toblach will be the perfect place for you.
The dairy in Toblach in Hochpustertal was founded at the end of the 19th century. At that time, several dairy associations were founded in Pustertal and in entire South Tyrol. Their purpose was to reduce a lot of work for the single farmers and to apply better hygiene standards. Today, the common processing and marketing of the milk products are paramount of the dairies.
In 2004, the show dairy was opened in the new building. Visitors are offered a small museum giving interesting insights into the past of traditional milk processing and cheese production in South Tyrol. In addition to exhibition objects, films about the landscape, the daily life of the South Tyrolean farmers and cheese production can be watched too.
