Tingvollost was established in 2003 on Saghaug farm in Tingvoll Nordmøre. The farm has a long crafts history back to 1303 and today we have four generations together on consumption.

Cheesemaking takes place in a private dairy farm that was built in 2006. Next door to the cheese factory is the barn built in 2009.
