The 39-year-old dairy farm in eastern Turkey, Kars province, known for its Gruyere cheese, attracts more and more local and foreign tourists after the villagers turned it into a “Cheese Museum”.

The dairy farm, which was built in 1880 in the village of Bogatepe, was not used for a long time until it was restored by residents in 2010. It was turned into a museum to showcase one of the city’s important assets: the production of cheese.

The museum exhibited tools used to make cheese, such as storage tanks, a device for making Gruyere, barrels for yeast and salt forms. Zyumran Omur, chairman of the Foundation for the Environment and Life, Bogatepe, who leads the restoration of the dairy farm, said that they have 32 types of cheese in the village, which they are striving to pass on to the next generations.

Omur noted that the museum is the first of its kind in Turkey, adding that they took 17,000 people to the museum in 2018 and are expecting an increase as demand grows. The Chairman expressed the hope that the museum would serve to preserve the city’s cultural heritage and popularize it.
