The best from milk and whey

How are Unteregger Farm products made? The main ingredient comes from a herd of more than 160 German Improved White goats, with curious little eyes and nothing but the best forage at their disposal – real hay and high-protein alfalfa only. Richard Zingerle, farmer and owner of Unteregger Farm, started breeding goats a few years back and soon this new passion of his passed on to his son Manuel. After completing his training as a master in milk technologies and earning a diploma as cheese sommelier, Manuel gave up his previous job as a carpenter and started producing aromatic goat’s milk cheese specialities in his family’s dairy.

That’s when he had a sudden flash of inspiration: why not use the precious whey resulting from cheese-making to produce a line of nourishing cosmetics? After all, whey has been considered a natural elixir for wellness and beauty for thousands of years. This is how Unteregger Farm came to specialise in cheese and cosmetics, premium Alpine products from two valuable natural gifts.
