Price: $1,000 per kilogram
Which of these — goats, cows, camels, moose or sheep — provides milk for a type of cheese that ranges from $900 to $1,000 per kilogram? The answer, you may be surprised to learn, is moose.
This is largely because, quite simply, moose cheese producers are so exceedingly rare. As in, there are only two or three moose milkers in the entire world.
One of those producers is Elk House farm in Bjurholm, Sweden, where — according to this video — the moose enjoy being milked. Moose milk from another producer, Sumarokovo Moose Farm in Russia, has medicinal qualities. A nearby hospital uses it to heal ulcers and lesions from radiation exposure.
An experienced milker can squeeze out of a healthy moose’s udder two or three liters of milk, which turns into one and a half kilograms of cheese. Also available? Moose droppings. One Swedish moose farm makes paper from moose poop, and collectors pay up to $150 per sheet.
