More about the cheeses
Yellow Springs Farm, a Native Plant Nursery and Artisanal Goat Cheese Dairy, was founded by Catherine and Al Renzi in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. The farm and nursery consists of an historic farmhouse, dairy barn, and a springhouse with pond on 8 acres of land. Originally a dairy farm 150 years ago, they purchased the farm in 2001, protecting it from future development with a conservation easement. They breed and raise Nubian goats for their naturally, nutrient rich milk and hand make a variety of pasteurized milk cheeses that change with the seasons and milk composition.
Cloud Nine™: This is a French-style, surface ripened cheese. It is handmade to look like a snowball or cotton puff. If you like creamy French cheese, and a bit of a bite on the back of your tongue, this is right for you. Like peaches or tomatoes, Cloud Nine ™ can be enjoyed right away while it’s firm, or ripened longer for a different texture and flavor. There is no "wrong way" to eat this—enjoy! This cheese won a blue ribbon and was Reserve Best in Show at the 2015 PA Farm Show.
Black Diamond™: This is a ripe cheese coated in vegetable ash as it ages. It is creamy, with layers of complex flavors. This cheese is inspired by the French Valencay cheese from the Loire Valley. Black Diamond ™ won first place among aged goat cheeses at 2014 American Cheese Society competition.
Fieldstone™: If they could package the"flavor of the farm"in one bite, it would beFieldstone ™ cheese. A firm, cave-aged cheese with an edible natural rind, which coincidentally resembles the color and texture of the natural stone walls in the 19th-century barn where it ages. One of theirAmerican Cheese Societyaward winning cheeses,Fieldstone™ offers an earthy and nutty quality from aging in the cheese cave for at least eight weeks. It is earthy, rustic, and has a touch of mushroom flavor.
