Unlike most blue cheese varieties, the milk we use to produce Great Hill Blue Cheese is raw and non-homogenized. This results in a fully flavored and creamy tasting cheese.
Upon coagulation, the curd is cut and stirred until reaching the desired consistency, at which time the whey is then drained off. Each cheese form is hand-filled, using traditional cheese making techniques. These forms are turned frequently throughout the rest of the day before being salted and heading into the aging process.
At Great Hill Dairy, we make 6-pound wheels out of fresh milk from our local farms as well as other packaging options. Consumers love our minimal processing, wholistic process, down-to-earth love of nature, and our small-batch techniques that result in a truly gourmet blue cheese product.
