Welcome to the Cheese Master sites

21.10.2016

We are ready with a new theme in our web site – Tasty Cheese Tour.
Find out about types and sorts of cheese that are produced in small facilities located in rural areas, and venture for a cheese tour to enjoy the variety of tastes and products! Farms and manufacturing facilities that prove mastery in cheese making, can talk about the process with visitors, and offer samples for tasting or buying are awarded with the title Cheese Master.


The new web site section offers a map and a list with descriptions and contacts of cheese makers, rural saloons, restaurants and other venues that offer locally made cheeses on their menus. The site also suggests one to four days touring routes in regions of Latvia and offers practical info to help you planning your tour.
Livestock breeding and milk processing traditions in Latvia date back to ca 2000 years B.C., and cheese is one of our favourite foods. The Jānu siers (Jāņi cheese) has the longest tradition as it is, together with beer, the main festive treat of the Midsummer celebration, which also received EU Protected Geographical Indication logo Traditional Speciality Guaranteed - TSG: highlights traditional character, either in the composition or means of production.
