Almnäs Bruk lies just south of Hjo, where Västergötland meets lake Vättern. Well-matured, organic cheeses, including the popular Wrångebäck cheese, have been produced here since the 1830s. Feel welcome to drop in at the farm shop and enjoy some really tasty cheeses in a rural environment.
Sweden’s oldest registered cheese name
Almnäs Bruk is beautifully situated on the shore of lake Vättern. The farm dates back to medieval times, though it wasn’t until the 1830s that the cheesery started production. The vision at Almnäs Bruk is to produce some of the world's most appreciated cheeses. Among the range of varieties is Wrångebäck, Sweden's oldest registered cheese name. As well as being on sale at the local farm shop, the cheeses are also sold directly to restaurants and cheese shops here in Sweden and abroad. Find a retailer here.
