Our Featured Gourmet Raw Milk Cheese
Great Hill Blue is an internally ripened variety made with raw, unhomogenized milk resulting in a true gourmet quality cheese. The cheese has a slightly dense and yellow curd as no bleach or food colorings are added.
The cheese is made at the Great Hill Dairy located on the shores of Buzzard's Bay in Massachusetts, known for its outstanding herd of Guernsey.
The unhomogenized milk results in a fully flavored and smooth tasting gourmet cheese. Each cheese form is hand-filled using traditional techniques, making a 6 pound wheel.
We cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
Browse our great selection of International Gourmet Raw Milk Cheese. A cheese is considered a raw milk cheese when the milk used to produce that cheese, prior to setting the curd, has not been heated above 104°F. According to FDA regulations raw milk cheeses must be aged for 60 days or longer at a temperature of not less than 35°F. Is raw-milk cheese safe, does it taste better – a debate that is not going away any time soon if ever. Some believe that raw milk cheese does taste better; that the complexity of the organisms naturally occurring in raw milk deepens the flavor; that pasteurized cheeses can't really approach that. Others believe that the risk of contamination is too great and that many pasteurized cheeses are excellent and often award-winning while competing head-to-head with their raw milk brothers. The debate rages among cheese gourmands; try some raw milk cheeses and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
