Pleasant Ridge Reserve


Uplands Cheese Company

Perfect gifts

Artfully Chosen

Cheesemaker Andy Hatch only makes Pleasant Ridge Reserve from milk produced when his cows have been out on pasture, giving the milk and cheese a rich, golden color and grassy flavor that tastes of summer. Andy only makes cheese on days when the pasture conditions are ideal to ensure the quality of the cheese. The farm incorporates rotational grazing by creating 20 separate pastures on their 244-acre farm in southern Wisconsin. The recipe for Pleasant Ridge Reserve is similar to the French Alpine classic Beaufort and yields cheese with deep savory flavor. We can taste sweet, salted caramel, grass, and a mile-long fruity finish. Pleasant Ridge is the most-awarded cheese in American history, having won Best of Show in the American Cheese Society’s annual competition three times (2001, 2005 and 2010)
