Their cheese comes from grass-fed Jersey, Brown Swiss, Milking Shorthorn, Normande and Holstein cows and our Nubian, Toggenburg and Oberhasli goats. These artisanal cheeses are made in the age-old tradition of European farmstead cheese, using a method that enhances the innate qualities of the milk. From season to season, you can actually taste subtle differences as the pasture grasses change with fluctuating temperatures and amounts of rainfall.
