Aged for at least ninety days, Appalachian is a lush, vibrant cheese evocative of cream and butter with a subtle, mushroomy earthiness. Its initially bright lemon notes evolve to toasted lemon meringue as the cheese ages. The texture is velvety, melting on the tongue.

Meadow Creek Dairy
Meadow Creek Dairy holds an uncommonly deep commitment to the health and happiness of their cows. Born and raised entirely on pasture, they are encouraged to eat a healthy and diverse natural diet through progressive rotational grazing practices. In the winter, they are given time away from calving in order to rest (an uncommon practice in industrial dairy settings). Many of the cows are well into their late teens, being allowed to live out the entirety of their lives with the herd, despite being beyond their prime productivity years. The compassion and intention behind Meadow Creek Dairy can be seen in the incredible quality of their products. These cheeses capture the terroir of the Virginian mountainside.
