What's with the name Bleating Heart®? Well....cows moo, goats and sheep bleat. From the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
bleat : to make the natural cry of a sheep or goat
Also, it is a play on the term "bleeding heart" which is defined as "a person who shows extravagant sympathy especially for an object of alleged persecution." We certainly have extravagant sympathy for American food artisans, with a special soft spot for cheesemakers and brewers, but mainly we just thought this name was funny.
Cheese availability is subject to change, and largely depends on how much milk we are able to get at what time of year, and how much space we have in our aging rooms. We make jersey cow milk cheeses year round but our production is small. Sheep milk is seasonal because dairy ewes only produce milk for about 6 months out of the year. This means our sheep cheeses are seasonal as well. They are typically available from late Spring through Fall. From time to time, we also make mixed milk cheeses, and water buffalo cheese when we can get the milk. As our cheeses come in and out of availability, we will show it on the cheese page.
