Moose cheese is cheese created from moose milk. Varieties of moose cheese are produced in Sweden by Christer and Ulla Johansson at their location called "Moose House"[1] or "Elk House".[2] Three varieties of moose cheese are produced.[2]

Overview[edit]

The Elk House (Älgens Hus) farm in Bjurholm, Sweden, run by Christer and Ulla Johansson, is believed to be the world's only producer of moose cheese. It has three milk-producing moose,[1] whose milk yields roughly 300 kilograms of cheese per year; the cheese sells for about US$1,000 per kilogram[3] (approximately US$455 per pound).

Three varieties of cheese are produced: a rind-style, a blue and a feta-style.

The cheese is served at the Älgens Hus' restaurant,[2] located in Sweden.[4]
