Seasonal grazers and mountain pastures have been a key component of Alpine cheesemaking for centuries. Set high in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, Meadow Creek Dairy has the same mix of high, rolling land and temperate climates. With a little time and a lot of management, their mountains have become a haven for sturdy, diverse perennial pastures.  Meadow Creek Dairy's cheeses are critically-acclaimed, winning Best in Show at the ACS as well as a Bronze Medal at the World Cheese Awards. 

  • Appalachian - Meadow Creek Dairy's signature cheese, the Appalachian is a true expression of the cheesemaker's terroir. The make is simple and focused on affinage, allowing the Appalachian to form a white coat of penicillium molds that compliments its unique flavor. Appalachian is a lush, vibrant cheese evocative of cream and butter with a mushroom earthiness that recalls the intensity of the cellars. Its lemon notes shade to toasted as the cheese ages. The texture is velvety, melting on the tongue.
