Teahive is a “feel good” cheese. The soothing qualities of tea and the relaxing properties of bergamot combine to produce a lovely cheese with rich fragrances of orange blossoms in April.What does it taste like?Sweet and creamy, this Jersey cow’s milk cheese immediately delights the palate and the complexities of the tea-rubbed rind continue through the finish.
We develop our Burrata authentically with a recipe that dates back over 5 generations. Our semi soft `Pasta Filata` cheese is made with Fior di latte cows milk cultures. We then fill our Burrata with fresh Stracciatella cream. This is often served with a sprinkle of salt and drizzle of olive oil. Scoop up the stracciatella cream with slices of Italian bread or spread the inside of the cheese onto crackers. Serve up with fresh tomatoes and basil, or it`s also a decadent and delicious topping for pizza.
1st PLACE RUBBED RIND CHEESE – AMERICAN CHEESE SOCIETY AWARDS 2023
This is a full bodied cheese with a nutty flavor and smooth texture. The cheese is hand rubbed with a Turkish grind of Colorado Legacy Coffee Company`s (The Cheesemakers brother) `Beehive Blend`. The blend consists of a mix of South American, Central American, and Indonesian beans roasted to different styles. French Superior Lavender buds are ground with the coffee and the mixture is diluted with oil to suspend the dry ingredients in the rub. The rub imparts notes of butterscotch and caramel which are prevalent near the rind, but find their way to the center of the cheese. The cheese is aged on Utah Blue Spruce aging racks in our humidity controlled caves, and moved to different temperature during the aging process to develop texture and flavor. The name `Barely Buzzed` comes from Andrea at Deluxe Foods in California. She was the winner of the name this cheese contest.

Wisconsin`s only cave-aged Cheddar, this variety has a creamy color and distinctive rind that develops in the open-air cave, where natural molds flourish and add beautiful character to the cheese. Sid says its earthy flavor is reminiscent of the cheese his family made more than 100 years ago.
