The Cows Arrived!
Posted by Sonja Hoffmann on
Finally! The cows arrived in Arosa, they are spread out between Alp Sattel, Alp Carmenna and Alp Prätsch. Tomorrow, Alp Maran will start making alpage cheese again, using the milk provided by about 400 cows.
Alp Maran is located close to Arosa, at an altitude of about 5400 above sea level.
Because of its location at the bottom of a wide valley, Arosa is very sunny and to a great extent sheltered from strong winds. As there is no transit traffic, the air is particularly pure which is why Arosa has been a famous Alpine health resort since 1877.
Here is a map to see where our delicious Maran raclette cheese is being made.
