Our newest creation, "Death & Taxes," is a super tasty collaboration with Moonlight Brewing Company. Fresh organic jersey cow milk is pasteurized, cultured, and coagulated with natural calf rennet. The resulting cheese curds are cut, stirred, and then scooped into basket forms by hand. After brining the next day, the cheeses are regularly flipped and washed with Moonlight Brewing's "Death & Taxes" black lager.
Our "Moolicious Blue" is an adaptation of our award-winning recipe for "Ewelicious Blue" 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 the countless fascinating aspects of cheesemaking that makes us eager to keep making more cheese. We didn't have to think too much about the name for this cheese.....our sheep blue is Ewelicious, and so naturally this one is Moolicious!
A little golden cheese, "Goldette Tommette" is a 1.5 lb semi-firm wheel with a lightly washed rind. Made from rich raw jersey milk, at 2 to 3 months of age the cheese has a firm but creamy mouth feel, pleasing aroma & a nice buttery tang. We think of her as the slim blonde cousin of our "Fat Bottom Girl" sheep cheese. The name is inspired by the paste's golden hue - thanks to the jersey cow milk - and suggests a touch of sass, which is present from the subtly funky microbes that grow on the rind.
