Goat cheese from Undredal

The goat cheese from Undredal is renowned for its unique flavour and traditional production methods. This cheese, known as "Undredalsosten," is made from the milk of local goats that graze in the valley and the mountainous around the fjord. The cheese comes in two varieties: a brown, sweet, caramel-like version called "Brunost," and a white semi-hard cheese.

In earlier times, every farm in Undredal made their own cheese, but now there are only two left. Look out for the two mountain farms on the road to Undredal. This is where the magic happens! There are also good chances of spotting a goat or 50 on your trip here.

The Undredal Stølsysteri is the largest producer. And their white cheese comes in 4 different degrees of maturity from 2-3 months to over a year. The well-aged cheese (6-12 months) was awarded as the best cheese at Nordic Cheese Mongers in 2023. And the most matured cheese (more than 12 months) won gold in the World Cheese Awards in 2018.

Did you know that there are more goats than people living in Undredal?
