Prairie Farms adds to specialty cheese line
Caves of Faribault, which is part of Edwardsville, Ill.-based Prairie Farms Dairy Inc., added two new artisanal varieties to its line of specialty cheeses. The first, St. Helga’s European Style Swiss cheese, is crafted in a European style to achieve a complex, full-bodied flavor with pronounced nutty tones that differentiate it from traditional Swiss. The cheese is made in Wisconsin and matured in the sandstone caves in Faribault, Minn. The second cheese, Cherubic Heavenly Young Gouda, is the pioneer product of a new line called the Commission collection. It is also made in Wisconsin with a brief affinage period in the caves and exhibits a pungent, buttery flavor. The cheeses are available in random-weight wheels and wedges.
