Happy Cows in Switzerland

Switzerland is famous for a lot of things – beautiful mountains, gorgeous lakes, wine, fondue, yodeling, quaint mountain villages, cheese and chocolate are a few.

But how do they make such great chocolate and cheese?Happy Cows Gruyeres Switzerland

Happy Cows!

I mean if you lived and ate here wouldn’t you make great tasting milk which then makes amazing cheese and chocolate?

    I don’t think you’d be a happy cow if you didn’t like climbing mountainous all day, or like the sound of bells when you move. However, I love both and Switzerland. Not for yodeling though, for snowboarding. But there are so many sports you can get involved in there, from mountain biking, paragliding, wild water rafting, or even zip-lining at Grindelwald. The list is endless.

      I think you may be right, John. I enjoy wandering the mountains and listening to the bells to. They are so peaceful! Switzerland has a lot to offer anyone.

  9. Wonderful post! Makes me sad, though. My wife and I were planning to visit Switzerland this summer but it all feel through. These photos are as close as we’ll get 🙁

    • Debbie Beardsley says:

      That is sad but hopefully you will get to go soon! Then we can all be looking at your pictures of happy cows 🙂

    Yep, pretty sure I’d be a happy cow if I were a Swiss cow. In the meantime Gruyere and chocolate will have to tide me over.

    I love happy cows 🙂 We used to see them when we would go hiking with the family when I was a kid. I love the gray ones even more than the brown/white ones though…
