Hornkäse is a special project coming to us from cheesemaker Albert Kraus. Unlike his other cheeses, milk for Hornkäse does not come from his brother’s neighboring farm, but rather a co-op of biodynamic farmers raising herds of horned cows. Choosing to leave the horns on their animals not only shows a priority towards animal welfare, but also helps to improve the quality and flavor of the milk they produce.
In working with this milk, Albert is able to produce a different profile of cheese than he has been known for. Hornkäse receives the same wash as Alex, a mixture of Elderflower cordial and ash from burnt hay.
