Cato Corner Farm makes all their cheese by hand with raw milk from their forty-five cows, mostly Jerseys, on their small Connecticut farm. Their herd grazes freely, enjoying a rich diet of fresh pasture grasses, local hay, and a small number of grains. We've been working with Cato Corner Farm for over ten years, and their rustic, handmade farmhouse cheeses are staples in our shops.
Dutch Farmstead has a natural rind with a semi-soft texture, milky flavor, and a nice acidic tang. Dutch is terrific on a cheese board but also great in the kitchen. Try it in a mac & cheese or a grilled cheese sandwich.
