In the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts Highlawn Farm milks a herd of 100% Jersey cows, and that rich fatty milk is turned into cheese, butter, ice cream, and other wholesome dairy products. The herd grazes on fresh grass in the summer months, has waterbeds to sleep on in winter, and is never given growth hormones. The farm grows all its feed for the winter months.
Highlawn Queen is a cheesemonger favorite. This brie-style cheese is decadent with grassy, buttery flavors and a delicious edible rind.
