Patty & Roger Scholten manage a herd of Dutch Belt cows in the rolling landscape of Weybridge, VT. Organic, high quality milk production has helped the scholtens survive a competitive milk market. Farmstead cheese is now a way to diversify the business and include the next generation; their daughter's family has come on board to help run the farm and creamery.
Weybridge is an organic, lactic-set cheese with a delicate bloomy rind. The lightly aged style is meant to showcase the Scholtens' rich and complex Dutch Belt milk. The thin rind surrounds a delicate cream-line, showing a toasty, mushroomy flavor in contrast to the bright acidity of the dense, milky core.
