During the alpage season, from April through October, the remaining Swiss farmers who practice traditional transhumance move their herds to high Alpine pastures where they graze on fresh meadows and wildflowers. The raw milk produced by these cows is considered the gold standard for Swiss cheese making. Its flavor is very much dependent upon its environment, the altitude, and local flora.
