Goot Essa Mountain Meadow Mild Cheddar is a milder traditional farm stead cheese. This is an all-natural, raw cow milk farmstead cheddar which we age for 10 months to develop the creamy nut taste. The mild cheddar flavor is typical of the original German-Swiss artisanal recipe taken directly from our Amish heritage. This cheese is a completely hand-made white cheddar with a well-rounded, deep cheddar flavor. This is also a versatile cheese that melts well for recipes that call for mild cheddar cheese and is terrific base in fondues as well as great as a hot garnish for vegetable dishes. A great sandwich cheese for ham, bologna, and Lebanon baloney, and wen cut into strips, Mountain Meadow Mild makes the perfect, healthy after school snack.
Constant quality control ensures that the taste is the same batch after batch. After careful salting and pressing in 40-lb blocks, we age the cheese in our cold room until the cheese reaches the peak of flavor. Mountain Meadow Mild Cheddar pairs well with various condiments including snack crackers mustard, horseradish as well as some sweet relishes. This cheese also works well with whole nuts, locally grown fresh fruits like pears and apples as well as dried apricots. It also pairs well with fruity white wines, and fruity reds, as well as stouts, lagers and pale ales.
The milk for this cheese is produced on the Esh family farm located in the Nittany Valley of central Pennsylvania. The Eshes are proud of both their farmstead and the care that they give each individual animal. A large emphasis is put on cow comfort and providing a natural environment for the cows.
