This award-winning, creamy ricotta cheese from Bellwether Farms is created with whole Jersey cow milk that is produced on their neighbors’ farm. Jersey cows produce milk with a higher fat and protein content, allowing for richer and more flavorful cheese. This ricotta is developed using a slower and more traditional method that requires extra time and constant attention. The result? Rich, pillowy ricotta cheese with a texture much more delicate than the firmer ricottas you typically find in the supermarket. We recommend drizzling it with honey and pairing it with fresh walnuts, or you can bake it into a pasta dish for a rich and decadent dinner. Not certified organic.
Bellwether Farm is located in Sonoma County, California. Family owned and operated since 1986, the founder and farm owner, Cindy Callahan, takes care of the sheep, her son Liam is the primary cheesemaker, and her daughter-in-law Diana runs the business. The family visited cheese makers throughout Europe to refine their technique and to learn more about how milk, climate and equipment affect flavor. Their traditional and time-tested method results in high quality cheeses that have won national awards. Although Bellwether Farms is not certified organic, their animals are never treated with hormones and their pastures are free of herbicides and artificial fertilizers. Not only are they dedicated to sustainable practices, but they are committed to serving the community with 1% of all sales going towards organizations that provide hunger relief and food education.
