This is a cow milk bloomy (jersey cow milk from Kilgus Farmstead Creamery in Fairbury IL) awith a delicate Geotrichum candidum rind. Like our black goat, the rind is coated in a fine charcoal ash after brining, and the Geo mold grows over the ash as the cheese ages. Sold as a 5-6 oz. round.
This cheese is sold "young" to our wholesale customers (approx. 2 weeks old) to give you 3-4 weeks to sell to customers. It is firm and mild when young, but will continue to age (get soft and gooey and more pungent) under refrigeration conditions.
