If You Like Cheddar and Blue, We've Got a Treat for You!
Posted: Thursday, September 1, 2011
When Seymour Dairy Products and Red Barn Family Farms came together, these passionate partners created a cheese that had us talking. It was the combination of over 100 years of experience in hand-crafting true artisan cheeses with the heritage and excellence of the small Wisconsin dairy farm that created Wisconsin Original Weinlëse Cheddar Blue Cheese. They started with sustainably-sourced milk with no rBGH from small family farms that are certified by the American Humane Association and handcrafted small batches of cheese to bring about the perfect marriage of these two distinct cheeses.
"At the heart of every Red Barn Family Farm are the families that farm according to an old-fashioned ethic of stewardship," said Terry Homan, Red Barn's veterinarian and founder. "When you combine that with the expertise of Mike Brennenstuhl, award-winning cheese maker, and cultures from Weinlëse you get a cheese like no other."
The smooth, creamy texture of the golden Cheddar body matures with etched blue-green veins that are characteristic of a classic blue. This complex cheese is noted for its sweet, fresh milk flavor that unfolds as a rich, mellow Cheddar, then finishes with a distinctively mild blue flavor.
We suggest you serve this cheese simply as an addition to a cheese board, or try it on a classic grilled cheese sandwich. Our recipe for Juicy Bacon Cheddar Blue Burgers is perfect for the remaining grilling months, and Brussels Sprouts with Weinlëse and Glazed Pecans can carry you into the winter months ahead. We are sure you will come up with lots of uses for this new cheese and spread the word about this real winner.
