All Bleating Heart Cheeses

Moolicious Blue

Cow Milk
Raw Milk • Natural Rind • Aged 2-3 months
Availability: 
Launching Spring 2014 & availabe year-round

Our new "Moolicious Blue" is an adaptation of our award-winning recipe for "Ewelicious" sheep cheese, but using a different type of milk results is a very different cheese, albeit a delicious one, even when the same procedure is followed. That's just one of countless fascinating aspects of cheesemaking that makes us eager to keep making more cheese.

Launching Spring 2014 & availabe year-round

We've won some nice awards for our sheep cheeses, so we figured why not adapt these successful recipes to develop some new jersey milk cheeses? That's how "Goldette Tommette" was born. Goldette is a 3 lb semi-firm wheel with a lightly washed rind.

A special seasonal twist on our usual Shepherdista cheese, “Shepherdista Crush” is a celebration both of our local milk and Northern California's annual grape harvest.

Ewelicious Blue

Sheep Milk
Raw Milk • Natural Rind • Aged 2-3 months
Availability: 
***SOLD OUT*** (returns in June)

How is this cheese you ask? Well, it's Ewelicious! This unique raw milk, natural-rinded blue is not a palate-blaster like some blue cheeses. Ewelicious is pleasing even to the non-lovers of blue cheese...just mild enough to be approachable, but complex enough to not be boring to blue lovers. The paste is dense and crumbly with sweet minerally flavors, while the blue mold imparts an earthy savoriness. The higher fat content of sheep milk gives it an added richness that balances everything.

Created in 2009 with absolutely no test or experimental batches, this is our flagship cheese, whose name was inspired by a Queen song and the cheese's accidental rotund shape. Each wheel of "Fat Bottom Girl" cheese is totally hand crafted with the raw milk from dairy sheep who live and graze freely on open pastures. Made only in small batches, Fat Bottom Girl is approachable and appealing to both cheese geeks & novices alike.

***SOLD OUT*** (returns in June)

Created in 2011, this cheese is called "Shepherdista" which is a play on the words 'shepherd' and 'fashionista' as inspired by cheesemaker Seana's commitment to infuse my some style and flair into her new-found agricultural pursuits....silver farm boots? Damn right. A pink cheese room apron? Naturally.
