Dark/Snow Canyon Edam
Named after two of our favorite southern Utah canyons, Dark Canyon is what we call our semi-hard Edam aged between 2 and 4 months. It has a rich and creamy flavor. Dark Canyon is delicious by itself, but is also excellent on a burger. It is fairly mild, but you will taste it...even through the onions. Once our Edam ages for more than four months (six months for the large wheels) we sell it as Snow Canyon. It is a much harder, drier cheese with a beautiful white rind that in the words of John Raymond of Raymond Cheesemongerss is a "Small wheel with huge impact. On a par with Parmigiano or Sbrinz." - Thanks John
Wasatch Mountain Gruyere
This mellow, rich-flavored, whole, raw cow's-milk cheese has a wonderful complexity of flavors - nutty, buttery, earthy. Like a traditional Gruyere, ours is pressed to achieve the tight texture. It melts beautifully and makes a fondue or French onion soup sing. John Raymond of Raymond Cheesemongers has this to say about Wasatch: "We tried it next to three super aged Swiss Gruyeres. It held its own and it's only a fraction of their age. A great cheese."
A semi-soft cheese with a rustic rind, our tomme is washed in a local apple cider from Zollinger Orchard. Belvedere is a "stinky" cheese made in the classic French style. Its flavor is hearty, fresh and tangy. Try it with apples and a crusty baguette. Aged more than 60 days. We named the cheese Belvedere in honor of Jen's Dad, Glen Hines, who passed away Dec. 14, 2008. Glen was a 10th Mountain Division ski trooper in World War II. He frequently told the story that he "won" the war in Italy when he and his fellow ski troopers took Mount Belvedere.
A traditional Gouda, but with a natural rin, Farmhouse is offered at three different ages. the older cheeses will have "Select" or "Reserve," along with the number of days aged on the round label. This semi-hard table cheese is perfect for eating with a rustic bread and some fruit.
"Zwitser" means Swiss in Dutch. This variation of our Farmhouse Gouda has an extra culture added that gives it a bit of that Swiss cheese zing. If you love strong cheese, this one's for you. At six to 10 months old, this cheese is a must-try.
As its name implies, whole black peppercorns can be found throughout this Gouda. The black pepper flavor adds a spicy, rich flavor that is the perfect complement to our Farmhouse. It's delicious on a cheese plate.
Boo Boo Baby Swiss
Mmmm .... with characteristic eyes and a mild Swiss flavor, this cheese began as a "boo boo," but now has become a permanent addition to our selection. Boo Boo is a variation of our Wasatch Mountain and is a sweet, nutty cheese that pairs well with a nice smoky ham. Try it on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum.
Desert Red Feta
Our cow's-milk feta packs all of the tartness and full flavor that you've come to expect from a traditonal goat-milk feta, but without the goaty aftertaste. Before the blocks go in the aging brine, we rub them with Real Salt™ mined in Southern Utah...its red minerals may give you a taste for the desert.
