Browse our fine selection of gourmet Farmstead cheeses. Farmstead or farmhouse (fermier in French) cheese means that the production of the milk and the making of the cheese occurs on the same farm and that the same company or family is in charge of both. Farmstead is not necessarily artisanal nor visa versa, but a single source is often regarded as high quality because the milk is controlled by the same people who make the cheese.

Our Featured Gourmet Farmstead Cheese
In 1941 on the Maytag Dairy Farm just outside Newton, Iowa a prize winning blue was born now donning the name Maytag Blue. A lovely cheese bestowed upon the dairy from the prize winning Holstein Cattle. Using the 1900 traditional cave curing process and producing in low quantities to ensure quality, the Maytag family is still producing the very same high quality blue cheese today.
Maytag Blue cheese is ripened over 6 months during which it develops a dense, crumbly texture and semi-sharp flavor and slighty pungent odor. Every bite of Maytag melts in the mouth releasing a slightly tangy flavor with a lemony finish.
