Freia | Working steam engine

Every Wednesday, at weekends and during the school holidays you can see the majestic steam engine running inside the ‘Freia’ steam-powered dairy factory.


Steam provided heat for pasteurisation, cleaning, disinfection and heating processes. The machines and equipment were also driven by means of steam power. In the early years, the principal product made in the factory was butter, but, after 1900, cheese took its place as the main product.


You can go on a tour of the Freia factory, after which you will have the chance to buy some cheese to take home. The times of these tours are shown daily on the board at the Freia factory.
