Greetings on this balmy March evening that feels of late May. Seems like just yesterday we were in the depths of January doldrums. Things are in bloom, whether by natural order or not, and I spied fiddleheads at one of our customer co-ops.
This all means we are days away from the sound of young moos filling the air, followed in weeks by a hoppin’ influx of milk. Time for this cheesemaker to get his garden planted before all of that hits. Exciting days ahead, indeed.
Trilby, basking in the afternoon spring light.
But unto the cheese:
Brie: Young batches of regular size. With limited availability per the usual winter milk supply.
Herdsman: Wheels from October and early November. Nice wheels with creamy farmhouse flavor. Baskets return (some with ash through the middle) for those that prefer those!
Havilah: August and Sept 2014 batches. Caramel, grass, pineapple, hints of hazelnut, with a really great texture.
Lawrenceville Jack: Our usual creamy grass-fed, mac n cheese buddy. Summer wheels
Full Nettle Jack: Spicy oregano and lemon notes shining through from the nettles. Spring and summer wheels. Raw Milk
Trilby: Our local rye whiskey-soused friend is currently available in .50 and 1 lb rounds. Lovely beef, buttermilk and even walnut flavors – and just a fistful o’ funk on that rind. Pasteurized.
Sweet cheese dreams! Enjoy these longer evenings.
Psst…don’t forget about this :
