Delicious cheese...

Fresh batch of Jasper Hill Moses Sleeper in stock at Forsyth
Jasper Hill Farm Moses Sleeper
Moses Sleeper is a bloomy-rind cheese developed by Mateo Kehler at Jasper Hill Farm. When young the flavor is buttery, bright, and savory, and when longer-aged the paste is creamier and takes on the aroma and flavor of brassica vegetables.

Casatica made from Bufala Milk

When the two brothers, Alfio and Bruno Gritti, took over their father's farm located in northern Italy, in the foothills of the Alps, they were milking dairy cows. But then, ten years ago, they decided to introduce water buffalo. Buffalo milk has twice the cream as cow's milk. A couple of years later they sold all the cows to focus on this rich milk. Increasing the water buffalo herd to 1,000, they built a creamery to make both cheese and yogurt. Today they make 25 cheeses, including Bufalo di Mozzarella, all steeped in local Italian tradition.

Casatica, a buffalo milk cheese, is similar to Strecchino. A soft-ripened cheese, aged for three to five weeks, it has a supple richness. With a creamy interior and a mild and delicate milky sweetness, left to sit, it will virtually ooze on your plate and melt into your mouth.
