The Tenhola dairy came to life in 2017 in the hands of Per-Olof “Pelle” Friman. It is situated in an old traditional completed building in 1910. The dairy and cheese factory was built by a Swiss Ernst Stäuber, who founded one of Tenhola´s first dairies. In Finland, the dairy was the second largest cheese producer in the 1930s. Valio had its own production in the dairy from the 1950s till 1987.
The various dairy buildings have been slowly and carefully renovated by Pelle. Currently, the cheese factory has been completely renovated with an added cheese cellar and room for group visits.
