Shepherd's Way Farms' Hidden Falls Cheese
Blogger Cheese and Champagne reviews a new cheese from Shepherd's Way Farms, a renowned creamery from Minnesota.
Made from a blend of sheep’s milk and organic, grass-fed cow’s milk from Cedar Summit Farm (the same farm that provides the milk for our beloved Bent River), Hidden Falls boasts a bloomy’s ultra-creamy paste and thin, tangy rind, but it’s no butter bomb. Despite its rich, silken mouthfeel and mushroomy flavor, the cheese manages to be restrained, and that’s not a bad thing. As much as we love butter-bomb cheeses, the palate needs a variety of cheese experiences to stay fresh and eager for more. Some days that means a scoop of sinful triple-creaminess, and other days call for a subtler cheese plate. Hidden Falls more than meets the requirements of the latter.
