The Elk House (Älgens Hus)

The world's only producer of moose cheese! 

Moose milk is sold commercially in both Russia and Sweden, but one small farm with three lactating moose, The Elk House (moose are also known as elk in some communities) is the only place in the world that produces the difficult to manufacture cheese from moose milk. The proprietors of the farm are famous enough for their moose-based dairy products that they now have an upscale restaurant and gift shop for visitors, who are also able to meet the domesticated moose themselves!
