The story of Hilma and Vilho
lives on in Herkkujuustola’s cheeses

A winding path leads to a remote swamp lake. There is a small grey croft by the lake. 200 years ago, Hilma and Vilho lived in the croft with their children. Life in the croft took guts and character. They grew rye and turnip for their own needs and had a couple of cows for milk.

Herkkujuustola - Väinö juusto


White mould cheese

When young, Väinö is a light and mild cheese. As it ages, its character becomes strong and it gets the mushroom-like flavour typical of white mould cheeses.
