PLEASE NOTE: In order for your cheese to arrive before Christmas, ORDERS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MIDNIGHT ON WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 16, 2015 in order to process everything before our last shipping date (12/22).

Our cheeses are made from the nutritious and creamy (antibiotic and hormone free) milk of our small herds of cows and goats that roam the pastures eating what they're supposed to eat – grass. Cheeses aged over 60 days are made with raw milk – bigger flavor and very nutritious. Those tender and fresh cheeses aged less than 60 days are made with pasteurized milk. The operative word here is GRASS, however.
Milk from animals that eat what they were designed to eat is nutrient rich, low in cholesterol, high in Omega 3s, and still retains proteins, minerals and vitamins necessary for good health. From the much loved pastured animals to the cheeses lovingly crafted and aged, you are sure to "Taste the Difference a Little Grass Makes".
