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

Moose cheese is cheese created from moose milk. Varieties of moose cheese are produced in Sweden by Christer and Ulla Johansson at their location called "Moose House" or "Elk House". Three varieties of moose cheese are produced.

The Elk House (Älgens Hus) farm in Bjurholm, Sweden, run by Christer and Ulla Johansson, is believed to be the world's only producer of moose cheese. It has three milk-producing moose, whose milk yields roughly 300 kilograms of cheese per year.

Three varieties of cheese are produced: a rind-style, a blue, and a feta-style. The cheese is served at the Älgens Hus' restaurant, located in Sweden.

Getting the moose in the mood to be milked is nothing like milking a cow. They get five liters of milk from each moose per day. They must be milked in solitude, with calm and quiet. So, it can take anywhere from half an hour to two hours, which is part of the steep price. But the owners are friends with the moose and have been socializing with them for years. They have even slept with them so they are tame and feel safe among their handlers. They take very good care of the moose and in turn, the moose take good care of them.

According to the Elk House, it's got a 'smooth, deep and broad taste, without a sharp and strange aftertaste.' Apparently moose milk is a lot like cow's milk, but has way more protein and more fat (depending on the season).
