The alp of Frience

The sound of bells you may hear as you walk along is the sound of the herd on the Frience Alp. The cows graze on these pastures on a rich variety of alpine flora. The products made from the milk of these cows develop a strong local taste. The cheeses are creamy and smooth. Stop by the chalet, meet the friendly owners and take home sweet and savoury delicacies made with passion and love.
