Discover Swedish Moose Cheese

Moose milk cheese is one of the most expensive cheeses in the world, produced and available only at the Elk House in Bjurholm, Sweden.


This cheese will cost you a pretty penny ($500 a pound), because it is incredibly difficult to collect the milk, as one would image. According to Atlas Obscura, "Coaxing the five liters of milk from each moose per day takes a delicate hand and calm demeanor, which leads to the product’s prestige and price."

The Elk House produces four types of cheese from moose milk: soft-ripened, blue, dried blue, and feta. The Elk House states that moose cheese has a smooth, deep taste with no sharpness or weird aftertaste.

If you're heading to Sweden soon, consider a stop at the Elk House to sample this once-in-a-lifetime delicacy!
