Why buy raw milk cheese?

We don't magically find our raw milk cheese at the end of rainbows, but once you taste it you might think we must! We strongly believe our cheese to be a superior product both in taste and nutritional value. The process of making raw milk cheese involves special care for the animals and the cleanliness of the farm, and such attention to detail does not go unrewarded.

The Welsh Mountain cheese is from a herd of Jersey cows in Narvon, PA. Their cows get a diet of grass along with other supplemental proteins. The 3-year Aged Cheddar from Welsh Mountain Farms is 100% grass fed and amazingly delicious.

Farmstead Fresh has a herd of Jersey cows as well and uses organic methods. They never use artificial fertilizers, synthetic hormones or toxic pesticides on their dairy farm.

Cheese made with raw milk from grass fed cows yields a more nutrient dense and flavorful cheese. Because our milk is raw, we maintain higher levels of precious vitamins and minerals (vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, calcium, iron, folate, and more). Pasteurization destroys the precious enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients that make our cheese so amazing.

We're our own best customers, having taste tested (and tested ... and tested) each of our varieties on fruit and cheese plates, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and pasta. Honestly, we can't get enough, and we're sure you won't be able to either.
