Local Artisan Cheese

Farmstead cheeses are traditionally made from the milk of the farm's own herd. The dairy is pasture-based, and the pastures are managed using sustainable, organic practices. No herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used. Growth hormones are not used and antibiotics are used therapeutically and only as a last option. We strive to provide the cows with a stress-free, healthy environment. Yellow Branch Cheeses are made in small batches following an original recipe that we developed.The distinctive flavor of the handcrafted cheese results from the high quality of the milk and the variety of grasses and herbs growing in the pastures.The ingredients in the cheese are whole unpasteurized milk, lactic culture, Celtic Sea Salt ®, microbial rennet and flavorings that we grow on the farm. Similar to keeping a sourdough starter, we carry over the lactic culture from batch to batch.
