After Waiting Eight Long Months….

We Are More Than Proud To Announce This Seasons Havilah Has Just Been Released In Our Farm Store!

Don’t wait too long to come out to the farm to try this mouth-watering grass-fed Italian Alpine style cheese (we just might run out).

What This Seasons Havilah Tastes Like…

The first taste that comes to mind is the pineapple notes that go right to the back of your tongue to start this mouth-watering effect, secondly
you taste the rich flavors of an Asiago combined with a sweet caramel note. Add in the hard texture and the bright
golden hue of the paste, and this cheese is a dream come true! Stop by the farm this week to try some on our sample board and stock-up for the holidays!
