Feline Foodie Reviews Woman of La Mancha

Woke up this morning to a very pleasant surprise cheese review from our favorite Feline Foodie-Spaulding Gray.  He and his madam are surely appreciated and loved around here!

We have this signature original cheese we produce here called Woman of La Mancha.  It is a favorite of us here on the farm and with our local eaters as well.  It is fun to make, but more fun to enjoy-after about a year of ageing!!  When we developed it, we put it in the ageing room, and proceeded to care for it and wait....and wait....and wait.....Then, once we tried it and loved it ( a year later) we proceeded to  make some more of it....and are waiting...and waiting.....and now we are just beginning to bring some more out on a very limited basis at about 8 months of age.  Mostly we are waiting for the 12+ month time frame to finally arrive.  It is a bit labor intensive to make-more than most, but we feel the results are worth it.  All cheesemaking is labor intensive and an act of art and love and passion.  This cheese is currently available at the farm.  We are open Saturdays from 10 to 2.
