A hill farm with tradition
The Niederkaseralm hill farm is situated 1,000 meters above sea level at the end of a property area named “Kurzer Grund” (bordering Salzburg) in the Kelchsau valley near Hopfgarten. Farmers from Hopfgarten have been running the die Niederkaseralm hill farm for centuries and milk is processed there into delicious cheese for as long as humans and animals have spent their summers in the Alps together.


A summer retreat for the cattle
On lush mountain meadows, 90 cows spend their summer retreat. As soon as the snow has melted and the grass begins to grow, the cows are brought to the hill farm at the end of May. They enjoy their “holidays“ in the fresh, clear mountain air with fresh spring water and lush Alpine fields abounding in herbs and thus, give the best Alpine milk.


Tasty cheese and fresh-made Alpine pasture product
For centuries, milk has been processed into cheese on the Niederkaseralm hill farm. It is managed from the end of May until the end of September, which means that during this period, the cattle is there and we serve drinks and snacks. Every day our cheesemaker processes the milk into fresh Almkäse (hill farm cheese), Tilsiter (light yellow semihard cheese), cream cheese, yoghurt and butter. These products can be tried and purchased directly on the farm.


An ideal excursion destination
The Niederkaseralm hill farm is an ideal excursion destination for hiking enthusiasts, but you can also reach it conveniently by car. After a beautiful hiking tour to one of the surrounding mountain summits, the Niederkaseralm hill farm is the perfect destination to round off a day full of events.
